...book I mentioned in last night's blog entry, "Making Your Family Life Happy".
"The Bible assigns the husband to a position of headship in the marriage arrangement, saying, 'Let wives be in subjection to their husbands...'."
"For a wife to be dearly loved, more is required than mere submission under her husband's headship."
"Above all, don't try to usurp his headship!"
"To be a wife who is dearly loved, you also need to care well for your responsibilities in the home... Are you such a wife?"
"Making it a habit to sleep late, spending excessive amounts of time in idle chatter with the neighbors -- these are not for her. Although illness or unforeseen circumstances may at times cause her to fall behind in her housework, her home will generally be neat and clean. Her husband can be confident that, if friends come to visit, he willl not be embarrassed by the appearance of their home."
"The Bible clearly enumerates practices forbidden to worshipers of Jehovah God: fornication, adultery, homosexuality. Some modern liberals practicing a "new morality" -- actually immorality -- clamor for acceptance of some of these forbidden sexual acts..."
"A wife who is dearly loved does not use sex for bargaining purposes."
"Weeping and nagging are not wise. They are damaging to a marriage. They alienate a husband."
"If a woman does not only her housework, but also worthwhile reading and kind deeds for other people, she will have upbuilding things to share with her mate."
Um, yeah. Right...
[Note: I am in no way trying to "bash" Jehovah Witnesses. The men that come here are wonderfully nice. But this book has got to go. LOL!
