  • This link only discusses the third trait of a good wife, which is domesticity. The first trait more important to men being attractiveness and second, submissiveness.

    Attractiveness:

    Submissiveness:

    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

  • Why don’t we have endless threads on traits of a Good husband? I swear since I’ve joined this forum it’s always about what evil creatures women are, or how women dont live up to standards

    Feel free to open you own thread (s).

    I don't see anywhere in these articles that may suggest that women are evil creatures or that they don't (or can't) live up to the standards, so that must be simply your personal emotive reaction. I think that these articles are actually quite good. The author of these series is Russian Orthodox, but the principles apply equally to traditional Catholic men (to all men really, universally). I believe that if your intention is to marry one day and build a successful family, then you better learn and pay very close attention to what the opposite sex wants.

    I appreciate hearing frank and blunt realities, as opposed to pretty and self-deluded lies. For instance, these are simple pieces of truth (just watch how men act, not necessarily what they say):

    Quote
    **** A young lady may be a devout Christian, but if she is not physically attractive, the vast majority of men will pass her over. Christian men are keenly interested in the physical beauty of a potential wife.

    **** A young lady may have good looks, and she may attend church frequently, but if she is bossy and controlling, many men will avoid her, and will not want to marry her. Christian men are highly interested in having a godly, submissive, obedient wife.

    **** A godly man wants his home to be a haven from the pressures and evils of the world. He is looking for a wife who will help create that haven.


    ^^^^^ There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. So men want mainly physically attractive women who are not bossy and know how to cook and keep house. We women also want certain particular traits in a man to marry, and that is fine too.
    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

  • Let women be subject to their husbands, as to the Lord: Because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church. He is the saviour of his body. Therefore as the church is subject to Christ, so also let the wives be to their husbands in all things.[...] Nevertheless let every one of you in particular love his wife as himself: and let the wife fear her husband.

    ~ Ephesians 5:22-24,33
    From the woman came the beginning of sin, and by her we all die. ~ Ecclesiasticus 25:33

    International Women's Day is a day we all celebrate Eve's rebellion at the Tree and our plummet into sin.

    In context, this is from DRBO Ephesians 5:25-29

    Husbands, love your wives, as Christ also loved the church, and delivered himself up for it: 26That he might sanctify it, cleansing it by the laver of water in the word of life: 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any; such thing; but that it should be holy, and without blemish. 28So also ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife, loveth himself. 29For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, as also Christ doth the church:

    Amen Sister. Unhappy people like to blame others for their own unhappiness.

  • Cera, who is the unhappy person in this thread? The OP merely asked for opinions on the article - no more, no less. No need tomake an issue of it.

    I joined this forum five and a half years ago. In all that time, this is the first instance I've seen where a post whose entire content is a quotation of Catholic Scripture got a dislike.

    Not even Impy stooped so low.

    I know you're engaging in hyperbole, but it's a little disingenuous to make a statement like that, knowing (as I'm sure you do), the ubiquitous, disastrous effects feminism has wrought on the world (yes, even the Traditional Catholic world).

    I knew my post would receive a least one down vote from any of the number of crypto feminists infesting this forum. They have a real problem with scripture and holy tradition, but I still had to post the truth.

    The topic of this thread is "traits of a good wife" not traits of a good husband, hence, the reasonable omission of verses 25-30. Verse 31, which I, also, included mentions God's command for husbands to love their wives, while highlighting the same verse stating that wives should fear their husbands. So why do you feel the need to mention verses 25-30? The context was already correct.

    The context is important because God's word is balanced and He addresses the responsibilities of both husbands and wives.
