    First time poster so cute me a break ok.

    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...

    I Love My Life

    I love my role. I know exactly what is expected of me in our marriage. There is no fighting or bickering, if I fail to do something I am suppose to do my husband will point it out and I will rectify it immediately. I stay home with our children, that is my job. I don't get to sit...

    The Old Days

    Every so often I hear ladies saying they were born in the wrong time. They wish they had been born 300, or100 years ago or even 50 years before they were. Not me.  I don't think I would have been nearly as competent then.Number one reason.  I mess with stuff, and I forget...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Mras/Anti-feminists Views On Marriage, Family, And Traditional Roles:

    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...
