Homeliving Helper has much good food for thought today as we ponder our roles as wives. She writes in part:
Some people do admit though, that the mother who stays home to take care of her children is something good and noble, but an idea that a wife actually, can do the same for her husband, is a novelty to them. Why, women should be independent from their husbands, they will say. Behind nice sounding words about equality, the core idea of feminism is women's independence from men. A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle, remember?
Wrong. Women need men. They need to be protected and nurtured and held. They need the complement to their very souls that men were created to be. What do men need? What do men want?
