by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Are You a Crown to Your Husband?
Editor’s note: Interesting that everything she lists as making a man miserable this author admits to doing for many years in her book. She’s sure the only Evangelical Christian I have seen that bothered blogging about the Brangelina divorce. In the unquoted bit before she pushed the idea of submission even if your husband is evil. Try to be enough of a smiling doormat and Jesus will magically change him. Does anyone know any couple where a woman’s submission did thoroughly change the husband from jerk to gentleman? I don’t.
A woman who makes her husband ashamed causes his life to be miserable and is rottenness to his bones. She has no self-control in areas that concern him such as finances, housework, or cooking. She spends her time on selfish pursuits and rarely thinks about her husband. She gives no effort to trying to make his life better in any way but takes him for granted and even uses him for what she wants. She nags, manipulates and quarrels with him. She is contentious and argumentative. There is rarely any peace in the home. She makes her husband’s life miserable. There is much division and disharmony. She has a long list of Honey-do lists and nags him until they are accomplished. She wastes her time on the trivial things in life, such as what Hollywood stars are divorcing, or what they are wearing and doing. Her husband is continually ashamed of her and regrets ever marrying her.
