The other day I was speaking with a lady that was going through some marital problems.
She spoke so poorly of her husband. Her biggest problem was that he didn’t help her with the domestic tasks… “He doesn’t wash a single dish, can you believe it?” She asked.
“Do you work outside your home?” I asked.
“No, he works, but I take care of our three kids and that’s not easy!” She answered.
We continued to talk and she told me that he was a good dad and even a good husband but he didn’t move a muscle at home, and that was the biggest problem.
“But what do you expect him to do?” I asked.
“I want him to divide the household chores with me! I want him to help me!”
Please forgive me those of you that share this idea, but I’m going to have to disagree…
He works the whole day, the whole week in order to support his household and when he gets home he still has to divide chores?!
I know that caring for the kids and home is hard work and that husband’s should participate but not to the point of dividing chores.
Nowadays, with modernization and women seeking equality with men, many have completely lost notion of things.
Many wives want to be the head of the relationship. They want to give orders, tell their husbands what they have to do or not do…I have something to tell these ladies: this sort of relationship will not last long.
Don’t intend to invert the natural order of things.
God didn’t creat woman to be the head of a marriage, that’s the man’s role.
I never had marital problems in this respect because ever since I got married I was conscious of my position in the relationship.
Even when I work in the office from 9 to 5, I don’t expect my husband to divide household chores with me, the simple thought of it sounds absurd to me!
In the case of the lady that I mentioned in the beginning, she will not be happy in her marriage until she changes her way of thinking, not because I say so, but because that’s the way God intended it to be.
Dare- Task 35
“Analyze your attitude in regards to your husband and see if you’ve been inverting roles. If you perceive that this is happening, change your actions and you will see a huge difference!”
