by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Husbands Using My Posts to Convict Their Wives
Editor’s note: Still not entirely sure what’s so evil and wrong with a working wife asking a working husband to help out with the chores and running of the household. If the working hours are evenly split between the two should not also the parenting tasks and housework be too? What about splitting according to who is skilled at what task? Lori spends a lot of her posting in the unquoted parts telling working women how to pray for under employed husbands so that they can squeeze a buck and stay home instead of meeting the financial needs of the family.
In saying all of this, I have no problem with wives asking their husbands for help when they need it. None. I have to ask Ken for help whenever something is too heavy for me or needs to be fixed which is often because of my bad neck. The viral post was for those women who nag and complain to their husbands because they have asked them to help but they don’t. Some have even destroyed their marriages over it. The problem today is that the roles have become so blurred that it has caused chaos in the homes and culture. Women were created to be their husbands help meet and to be the keepers at home. Men were created to be the protectors and providers. Everything works better when each knows their role and does it, contrary to what feminists have fought so hard for.
Woman are home-oriented. God has made them this way. This is why the home fixing up shows are so popular. Women love their homes and want them to be beautiful. They are also the nurturers. God made them this way too. They are the ones who bear and nurse children. When their children are sick and they have to work, all they want to do is be home with their children. If your husband doesn’t want to help you with housework, since many men have no desire to do housework, do it joyfully as unto the Lord and remember that the JOY of the LORD is your strength.
