    Are You Kidding Me

    you all actually want to be pushed around by your husbands? you can do anything you want to but you just let him tell you what to do thats crazy. I would never want anyone to tell me what to do exspecially not a stupid guy. I will never get married for that reason.

    Couldn't Of Said It Better Myself.

    Just a little piece from one of my favorite authors.  The following is from the book, Happy Housewives, by Darla Shine.  The luxury that our mothers had as girls was that they knew that even though they would go to college, most likely their main goal was to meet a man who...

    These are personal views of mine

    but I believe that men and women have specific roles in marriage. I believe that when you get married it becomes your responsibility to work for the benefit of your husband/wife. I am traditional in believing that women should support her husband and make sure he gets what he...

    Ok, There I've Said It.... I Do.....

    I believe in traditional roles within marriage, the ideal of one half being the HOH (head of house to the uninitiated!!), of them having the final say, being the ultimate decision maker, and in some cases, disciplinarian, if you believe in moderate DD lifestyle like I do.  But I...

    I Believe

    That if men and women were truly made to be equal, then we would not need each other. If a woman can do everything a man can do and vice versa, where would we be? Having heterosexual relationships or relationships in general other than procreation would be null and void...

    Raising A Family The Traditional Way

    My mother and father were traditionalist in

    their parenting. They believed in raising my brothers and myself to be free of the hang ups that modern living places on children these days. We are a close family, interdependent in so many ways.

    The thing is I've come to learn that, though we as a people fight our design, are you ready, there are gender roles. Yes I said it. I think this is why marriage has suffered. Spoiler alert! I'm going to refer to the bible. So much to say, but where to start? Men need God...

    Traditional Marriage When Your Husband Is Not Decisive? Why Yes, It Is Possible!

    I often hear women say that they like the idea of a traditional marriage, but their man isn't decisive enough to take the lead. Thoughts like that make me laugh, now sure men have changed in some ways (What the heck is a metro-sexual?) but all men have periods where they're not...
