'Submissive' Wives
'Submissive' Wives
I recently read an article about Gabrielle Reece, former pro-volleyball player, promoting her book in which she states that good wives are submissive wives. As if she knew the backlash she would receive, she even prefaced it as "to truly be feminine means being soft, receptive, and -- look out, here it comes -- submissive."

*Cue feminists outrage*

She goes on to talk about how by her acting like a soft, feminine woman allows her husband to act and feel like a real masculine man, which results in him treating her the way she WANTS to be treated. She continues: "I think because women have the ability to set the tone, that the ultimate strength and showing real power, I believe, is creating that environment," she said. "I think it's a sign of strength."

If only more women recognized and realized this power and used it for GOOD!!

I have listened to you, Dr Laura, since I was a little girl riding in the car with my mom, listening to our fuzzy AM radio station. I am now a 25-year-old newlywed who chose wisely and is treating my husband kindly. I'm not going to lie, the first few months of us living together was hard for me to transition from "independent woman" to "submissive wife", but reading "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" made it a lot easier. And let me tell you.. The results are unbelievable. When I started treating him like a man, MY MAN, and not like a roommate or a child or an assistant, he became more attentive, helpful, and, surprisingly, my ATTRACTION to him was intensified. I can now say he is the king of our small apartment and he treats me like a soft, gentle, sweet, feminine woman, and neither of us could be any happier.

Thank you for all that you do. You empower us women to be the wives our husbands deserve and because of that, I know my husband and I have many many wonderful newlywed years to look forward to.
