Quoting Quiverfull: Flirting and Teasing are the Secret to Keeping Marriages Alive? May 3, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Shoshanna Pearl Easling from No Greater Joy magazine – How Do You Keep Marriage Alive?

Editor’s note: Shoshanna is answering a reader’s question in this bit. While none of the things she’s saying are necessarily bad advice I find it revealing and interesting that there’s nothing on that list involving communication or discussion or being truthful and real with each other. It sounds more like a list to seduce someone else. What do you think?

Here is my answer: You flirt! You tease! You date! You work to impress! You be impressed! You find ways to laugh, sit close, and hang out together. You kiss every chance you can. You dart around the corner and make out! You dress for each other. You pray. You are thankful and count your blessings. You look for ways to bless the other. You worry less about their job and you do yours. You are understanding. You find interest in the same things and have fun learning, growing, and doing that thing together. You kick up a heel and blow him a kiss, or better. Then you do it all again tomorrow!

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
