Questioning The Pearls: Help! He Wants Me to Go to College!

Questioning The Pearls: Help! He Wants Me to Go to College! August 7, 2016

QuestioningthePearlsFor well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give.

Edited for length. You can read the entire post at No Greater Joy.


I have a question. I am struggling to make God-honoring decisions while still being submissive to my husband. He wants to send our son and two daughters to public school. This scares me as I remember just how evil it is. And now he tells me he wants me to enroll in college and get a degree so I can have something meaningful in my life. This hurts me because as a pastor in training he should be encouraging women to be keepers at home. Why?

Debi’s Answer:

The same thing applies for going back to college. If a man is learning and growing and he sees that his wife is just coasting along, a loving husband will want to help motivate his wife so she can keep pace with him.

No man wants a wife that spends her days on the couch watching soap operas or reading romance novels. A wife who is a phone chatter, web-surfer, or text message gossiper is really a loser. These behaviors sap a man’s hopes and dreams.

A man knows that his smart, hard-working, industrious wife reflects well on him, and she brings a lot to the marriage. Regardless of what kind of man he is, a husband will find great satisfaction in the fact that his wife is self-motivated and hard-working.
