I'm a very strong willed and strong minded person. I can confess that I was not the most submissive wife because I believe in speaking my mind and because I did not have 100% faith in the other parties capability to lead me. With that being said, I agree that a woman's role is to be submissive to her husband as a Queen takes heed to what her King says. Perfect example, in the book of Esther, Queen Vashti's disobedience to King Ahasuerus lead her to the loss of her place on the throne.
I am a firm believer that the value of marriage has been tarnished in today's society because the women have forgotten how to be women and the men have forgotten how to be men. Something has happened to were the roles have reversed and we haven't acknowledged that there is problem. I for one don't believe in supporting a grown man. Now when I get remarried and my husband losses his job, "Boo I got you!" But it is against my personal not belief to be say "Babe you should quit your job and let me take care of you!" No sir! Not today, and not tomorrow! I feel that it is a man's job to contribute something to the house. I want to know that my man takes his role as a provider seriously. It ain't nothing worse than being with a sorry male!
I don't want anyone thinking that I am saying that a woman's place is to be barefoot and pregnant, cooking fried chicken and making peach cobblers. But I am saying that a woman is meant to be helper, a prayer, a companion and a support to her HUSBAND (Not Joe from across
the street, but your HUSBAND) Now, I am also not saying that a man can't be a stay at home father while the woman works, because quiet is kept, taking care of kids is more than a full-time job. What I am saying is to submit to your King and don't apologize about walking with him, stop trying to walk in front of him, you may mess around and fall in a ditch. Let him be the man that God has ordained him to be for you!
"18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them."
