by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Jail Time for Messy Housekeepers
Editor’s note: Lori is clearly thinking that jail time is appropriate no matter her words that she thinks it’s ‘too extreme.’ Seriously? What about that time when Jesus told Martha to chill when she was upset that Mary wasn’t helping her cook, clean or set up the meal she was working on? It’s all a matter of personal tastes, talents and preferences and no one else but the people involved business if the house is dirty or clean. Most of us are somewhere on a sliding scale of dirty/clean depending on the day, the needs of the family members and the activity levels and that’s perfectly fine. No matter what Lori claims there is not a darn thing in the Bible about how you must keep your house immaculate and gourmet meals on the table.
If a husband doesn’t do his job like he’s supposed to do, he will get fired. If a wife doesn’t do her job keeping the home clean and tidy and fix nourishing meals for her family, she should go to jail. Just kidding! The entire family suffers, however. Some women today even like to brag about their messy homes. There is no shame about it. They don’t think having a clean and tidy home is nearly as important as all the other things they are trying to accomplish.
An article tells about a situation like this. “A husband in Italy is accusing his wife of “mistreatment of family and ‘bad management of domestic affairs’ for failing to keep up with the household chores, such as cooking and cleaning. According to Italy’s penal code, the law ‘punishes whoever mistreats a person in their family or a person entrusted to them for reasons of education, care or custody.’” If convicted, she faces up to six years in jail.
When I read about the man wanting his wife in prison, my first thought is that I feel sorry for any man who has to live in a filthy home with no good food, especially those men who work hard to provide for their families while their wives are home all day. Yes, it’s understandable if a wife is sick or injured but not for those who are in good health.
