    Soon To Be A Mrs.!

    My man proposed last night at dinner, kneeling on one knee and slipping my beautiful ring on my finger. Everyone in the restaurant clapped! In June, I'll be vowing to "love, honor and obey" and then I'll happily settle into the only career I ever want, a traditional, old...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I respect it if that's what someone wants to do.

    My issues lie with people that want to enforce traditional roles onto marriages of other people. Some women don't want children and want to explore their own careers. Some men want to stay home and take care of the house while indulging in hobbies. When they aren't harming...

    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.

    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...

    I definitely believe in traditional roles

    within a marriage. Women should be very submissive, and should not talk unless asked. In marriage men need to lead. Women have to listen and serve.
