men and women

no one understands the way things work between men and women, except God who in His infinite wisdom created them and made them not the same.

hey, not even the proverb-writer agur understood it. in proverbs 30 he says

The way of an eagle in the sky,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the middle of the sea,
And the way of a man with a maid.  (30:18-19)
