Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 180 degree turn from Debi and friends always all spelling and grammar in the posting is unchanged from the original author.
Okay, on to today’s question from a mother instead of a young woman:
My son is in a relationship with a young lady who grew up in a single parent home with no father figure. She appears to be controlling everything even trying to make decisions for him. How does the role of submissive wife translate for the boyfriend/girlfriend relationship especially if they are talking about a potential marriage?
No one answered this mother. Seems like she’s openly criticizing this young lady for being raised by her mother alone and blaming what she thinks are flaws on being without a father. Is she asking if there’s reason to be concerned that this potential daughter-in-law might not be able to be properly submissive? Getting vibes that mama is dying to interfere and end the relationship. What’s really going on here?If this is your first time visiting NLQ please read our Welcome page and our Comment Policy!
