This thread is a car wreck. I mean really, "beat your wife!" Are you kidding? No you aren't supposed to beat your wife up
However, I doubt from many of the responses that many trads actually believe that a husband has a right to punish his wife, if she is disobedient. May he scold her? Is it ok if he isn't happy with her, when she is disobedient? Is he just arrogant for thinking she should obey in the first place and is his real problem just that he doesn't respect and value her enough? I just want to know, because honestly I think most men will just give up. Some haven't, but I think you are asking far too much of most men. I mean, have you not met people today? Are all your friends amish or something? Most men and women are just hanging on by a thread. They have no idea how to be good husbands or wives. They are utterly incompetent as people, let alone spouses. Of course, our culture is producing idiots. The divorce rate is over 50% for a reason.
