|Happy to Be a Submissive Wife. Comforting him after a long day of work.|
Candace Cameron Bure caught flak for saying that she is a submissive wife, but I applaud and can relate to her, because I am a submissive wife too.
I am surprised that she would be criticized just for upholding traditional values and traditional marriage.
Being a housewife without children whose husband is the provider of the house, I am grateful to my husband for all he does for me, and for allowing me to live a life free of the cares of the working world.
I am able to live in my domestic tranquility and do what I please as a result. I think most wives today do not like having a submissive role because so many work outside of the home and want to have an equal voice as a result. Listening to other people at work telling them what to do for 40 hours per week is perhaps all the submission they want to deal with.
I was overjoyed to read The Surrendered Wife by Laura Doyle because she is a voice of traditional reason in our crazy, selfish, high-divorce-rate world. It's about how respecting your husband and submitting to him goes such a long way in keeping your marriage happy.
I could go on about how great each section of the book is, but chances are if you are anything like me you will nod in agreement with its wisdom and insight. I like to reread parts of this book after I have an argument with my husband. It puts a lot into perspective.
But for women like me, having a male leader in the home is natural. It complements our very feminine personalities. We are in love with the protective, provider, masculine qualities of our husbands. He works hard for me every day, so I am happy to cook for him, love him, and make our house beautiful. When he comes home from his stressful job, all I want to do is put my arms around him and help him relax.
