by Erin Davis as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism from her blog True Woman – Six Reasons Your Husband May Not Like Your Women’s Group
Editor’s note: How does her husband know she is complaining about him there? Did she tell him? Why do Evangelical Christian men find women not applauding everything they do to be so threatening to their ego and masculinity? Venting can be healthy, particularly if you have no other safe place to vent.
You complain about him there.
When women get together, the conversation almost always turns to relationships. It’s easy to default to complaining mode in the cocooned safety of other women whose husbands also forget to take out the trash. But using your women’s group as a sounding board for everything you’d like to change about your man isn’t the Titus 2 blueprint. Don’t use it as a place to vent about your children, coworkers, or in-laws either. Here is a good “rule” for the conversations among your group.
“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear” (Eph. 4:29).
Don’t assume that everyone already knows this verse. Talk about if often. Maybe open each discussion by reading it out loud.
