Hey, all you ladies with husbands! How are you guys doing? No, really: how are you? Do you feel like you have a good life? Do you feel like you are a good wife? Do you feel like you’re doing all you can to accept your husband as a leader and to show him that you believe in his God given responsibilities? If not, then go ahead and check out this advice from Michelle Duggar, and see how you can become a better wife TODAY!
* A Husband Needs A Wife Who Accepts Him As A Leader And Believes In His God-Given Responsibilities”: Husbands are commanded to govern their wives; God works through a man’s decisions — good or bad; Bad decisions reveal his needs and allow the wife to appeal and demonstrate Godly character; The more a wife trusts her husband, the more careful he will be in giving her direction; Never ask others for counsel without your husband’s approval; reassure your husband that you understand and believe that he is your God-given leader.
* A husband needs a wife who will continue to develop inward and outward beauty: How can you become more of the wife of your husband’s dreams?; discover and conform to your husband’s real wishes; explain your hairstyle to others on the basis of your submission to your authority; separate your “rights” from your responsibilities.
* Ask your husband to define your responsibilities; Ask your husband to tell you when you have a resistant spirit; dispel a backbiting tongue by silence.
Ok, let’s be fair real quick. These beliefs are not my beliefs, not by a long shot. The Duggars aren’t hurting anybody, I guess, but really, I think they’re crazy. This couple is bonkers, but still, this is another case of “I disapprove of what you say, but I will go on the internet and halfway defend your right to say it while still asserting that you’re out of your damn mind.” You guys know what I’m talking about.
But anyway, Michelle says that to be a good wife, you’re supposed to only talk to other people if it’s cool with your husband, stroke his ego constantly, change yourself as needed for him to think you’re attractive, make sure people know that your husband picks out your hairstyle, and make sure he knows that you want him to call you out if you have an opinion that he doesn’t agree with. Oh, and be sure to separate your rights from your responsibilities. Don’t get all hung up on being your own person when you have a dude to please.
Is everyone clear on this advice? Good, now go be the best wife you can be!
