Last week, I was in the company of workmates who had been married for a total of over 50 years and they posed a question to me:
Why are marriages in your generation collapsing?
A lot of reasons were given including impatience and peer pressure. One of the gentlemen insisted that couples should go through marriage counselling. Another lady said that couples ought to marinate and meditate on the vows that they will take before the actual wedding day. According to her, people say “for better, for worse” without realising that the “worse” days come sooner rather than later.
Then the topic of submissiveness came up.
We discussed what it meant to submit to your husband and then one of the guys said something that I need to share:
If a man needs to ask his wife to submit, he is not a good husband. A good husband does not need to ask his wife to submit. She does it.
And that is the truth!
