Hmm... not too harsh. She just seems kinda whiny because he din't make lunch once. Her method of dealing with it is pure denial, though.

Damn aaa you beat me to it. I also hate when they call them "dear husbands"

@ Joe-Bob: "dear husband"
they use d* for close relatives. And children.

Is there any surer proof that you're dealing with an ignorant dunce whose opinions can be summarily and utterly disregarded than their misuse of the term "Help Meet"?

Bit off topic, but I wonder what kind of husbands Mr. Pearl chose for his daughters concidering his heavy screening methods and general "woe those who do not submit" attitude...

At least the words are separated, which could mean they know what they mean.

I do hope your kind (in the biblical context) is heading for well-deserved extinction.

No, I'd rather not be an unpaid domestic servant for a lazy and dependent controlling jackass. I'd rather be on equal footing with someone who's pleasant to be around.
"Helpmeet" nothing. God helps those who help themselves.

It seems clear here that you're married to a manchild. An adult can handle more varied social situations than domination and submission. They can handle egalitarian relationships. Manchildren, however, see the world as bosses and bitches.
And you're just stupid enough to give him the boss position.

Maggie: In this context "meet" is an adjective, not a noun. It means ... ah, never mind.

In one way, this woman is correct: It’s an exercise in futility, not to mention grossly insulting, for one partner to try and change the other. Spouses should pick up the slack for each other, according to their interests and abilities, as opposed to pecking at each other over minutia.
If the wife likes her lunch on-time, and the hubby doesn’t care, then let her make the lunch. If the husband wants his clothes folded a certain way, and the wife doesn’t care, then let him fold the clothes.
She’s also correct in that spouses should respect each other, never airing their dirty laundry in public, for example, and never sniping at each other in front of company.
Alas, poor Maggie thinks this is a one-way street; that she owes her husband respect and good manners, whereas he can ride for free. She might inspire him to treat her better, but it’s more likely she’ll inspire him to hate her for her lack of a spine.

"Wives submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as the Lord is the head of the church, His body, of which He is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also should wives submit to their husbands in everything."
This is from the same guy, that judgmental, sexually dysfunction misogynist, Paul, who says (in 1 Corinthians 7:1): "Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: [It is] good for a man not to touch a woman." And later (1 Cor 7:7-9): "For I would that all men were even as I myself (i.e. lacking sex drive). But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn."

Stepford wife for Jesus. YAY!

Do you wear t-shirts with "welcome" printed across them?
7/19/2008 10:06:34 PM
It makes much more sense if you read "dh" as dickhead.

Allegory for Jesus
Jeez...it sounds like she doesn't care much for her husband at all, and needs to recite "Jesus wants me to bite my tongue" over and over again in order to get through the day. Sad....

Maggie, get a life.
