The bible that says ‘wives submit to your husbands’ also said ‘husbands love your wives and be not bitter against them.’
Bitterness in the verse is translated ‘Harsh’
God says Husbands, love your wives and do not beat them. Do not shout at them. Do not abuse them. Do not treat them like trash. It is in the bible!
I hate illiterate christians who only quote what feeds their ego and ignorance. If you must quote what God said, quote it in full.
And I see nothing wrong with the bible asking women to submit to their husbands. Submission doesn’t translate being a doormat or God wouldn’t have further asked the man to love his wife and not treat her harshly, He would have asked him to Boss and Lord it if submission means the woman has to be humiliated and disrespected. Remember, love is kind.
Submission means respect. There’s nothing wrong with a man being the ‘head’ of the house. And please, I am not talking about the dysfunctional huts posing as homes. Personally, I believe marriage is about partnership. But even at that, if I marry, there are things and times when I will have the last word. Just as there are some times when I will have my say and let her have her way. Only a foolish woman will turn her home into a constant battleground for superiority wars. Husband will still be saying 1,2,3 and she will be at 100,000, 100,001,100,002.
Last last, wives submit, husbands love.
You want to marry a man that will submit to you? Good luck there. You want to marry a woman you will treat anyhow and expect to live long? Good luck there. You want to show your husband you are strong and won’t take any nonsense and blah blah, good luck, darling. Men are wired to do nonsense. We are wired to fuck shit up. I am not excusing, I am telling you. If you can’t deal, stay single.
Sometimes you clean shit up. No be every time shit come you leave your seat for another. Human being wey no dey shit no be human being na. Some people are just lazy. First issh they go: I no do again, I don tire. Marriage is overrated blah blah. You never even sabi spell him surname correctly o.
The body of Azukaberg, I salute you.
