    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...

    What Happened?

    I want to know what happened to the traditional roles. Where the woman stayed home took care of the house and kids and even homeschooed them. I think women going out into the work force is what has ruined a lot of things. I know that I may get a lot of mad people on this because...

    What I Want For Myself...

    ...isn't necessarily what is best for everyone, but when I am married I kind of want to stay at home or have a small job (teacher's aide, part time). I have very traditional values on marriage, but I realize it isn't for everyone. Still, I want nothing more than to be a housewife...

    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...
