This one popped up today on my radar. A lady I’ve not seen before that runs a Facebook page Submissive Wife said this about her husband’s reaction to her completely natural and normal questions.
No, you’re teaching your daughter that her needs and wants do not matter if you trust your husband to remember every little thing. There’s nothing wrong with double checking to make sure someone else hasn’t forgotten something important, like gloves and a hat. This has nothing to do with submission and everything to do with abusive control.
In a marriage partnership, and make no mistake marriage is always a partnership no matter what they claim, there will be times you will need to gently remind each other. My husband always asks me about things like that, and I do it to him too. There’s no disrespect, no attempt to usurp any sort of authority, just two flawed humans reminding each other to add to the grocery list, or remember to hit the hardware store. Helping each other.
All this guy had to do was say, “Yes I have those gloves and hat” or “No, but I’ll pack them now” the very first time his wife asked the question instead of turning it into an abusive moment.
This lady also believes in Christian Domestic Discipline – CDD. She’s posted before about her husband tossing her over his knee and spanking her.
BDSM is fine if you are both in agreement, but linking it to some sort of punishment is just all kinds of wrong. There has to be mutual consent, not one person physically lording it over another person. Punishment without mutual consent is assault.
How does any of this glorify God or Jesus or anything to do with Christianity? One of the saddest things about her Facebook page is that there are good things, beautiful ideas posted without this level of abuse and control.
