From “Anonymous Age 71” at Dalrock:
What most women and even men don’t understand is what happens to a man when his wife submits. It is pretty much like a young woman who has her first baby. She is just a “dumb ole’ girl” but when she realizes that baby in her arms is helpless and is going to die if she doesn’t take care of it, it’s as if she popped into a phone booth and came out wearing a blue mom suit. Except in abortion cultures, of course.
Just so men, except those in a misandrist culture, when they realize their wife is truly submitting change and start worrying what to do and how to do it. And, men do make mistakes at first. A submissive wife will understand this, and will not divorce him the first time he makes a mistake, but will help and motivate and encourage him while he fixes his mistakes.
I remember the first time I heard about wifely submission. A pastor’s daughter, a friend of my daughter’s, was marrying, They had that part of the Bible read. I noticed with interest that as it was read, she was relaxed. He looked scared, which meant he understood the enormity of his job as leader.
