Basic Differences between Men and Women

God's Plan of Happiness for His Children
We were CREATED to be different.  There is a good reason for this and as we come to understand our unique and special roles - we'll begin to see God's wisdom in His glorious plan.  

Bishop Victor L. Brown stated the following:  “In the scriptures we read, ‘So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.’ (Gen. 1:27.) The Lord defined some very basic differences between men and women. He gave the male what we call masculine traits and the female feminine traits. He did not intend either of the sexes to adopt the other’s traits but, rather, that men should look and act like men and that women should look and act like women”.

In "The Family; a Proclamation to the World" it states:  "By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation. Extended families should lend support when needed."
