As copious as our disparity may be, one thing can be seen in every culture. It has been present through many generations of human history. It has been persistent and prevalent in every human civilization. It has remained undaunted by time, geography or technology. Although, it finds peculiar manifestations in each culture, some being more obvious than others, it is a universal predicament. This predicament that the author observes and refers to, is the domination and suppression of women. This inability to achieve balance in the role and relationship between the genders has sparked off all sorts of extremes. At this very moment in time, mankind struggles to find a definition for marriage and the family. The more developed cultures are evolving an ideology of gender independence and at the same time, the belief that genders are identical in role, responsibility and propensity. This has resulted in an unprecedented rise in societal and personal dysfunction and a disillusioned generation. The more underdeveloped cultures, however, bury their head in the traditions and unproductive concepts that have trailed generations and kept them in poverty and ignorance. Is there balance somewhere? What is the truth in the midst of all of this confusion? What is the opinion of the Maker, the One who made them male and female in the first place? Does God have a solution to this quest? This book is a quest to present this balance to you and provide a workable solution for those who desire to have the home of their dreams.

It explores why societies and cultures have found it difficult to achieve true balance between the roles and responsibilities of both genders in a marriage union.

It's simple and easy to understand illustrations cut through the usual arguments and mindsets that makes it hard for change to happen and it presents a new paradigm for marriage and relationships.
