Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies

After visiting the Rossetti exhibition at Tate Britain, I was inspired to explore love and romance and how is it different for women.
“As a man matures he also learns that he may be giving up himself, but his major change is becoming more aware of how he can succeed in giving. Likewise, as a woman matures she also learns new strategies for giving, but her major change tends to be learning to set limits in order to receive what she wants.”
John Gray
Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
It is vital to understand the differences to agree in a relationship
Men need space as much as women need reassurance
Once this is understood the relationship can thrive if both are prepared to give the other what they need
