I was going to post an ad in the local paper that read something like this:

Looking for some lucky lady to be the slave to my master, and prey to my predator. Anyone looking to make a lifelong commitment to servitude please contact me.

No really- did anyone even read the article. To say that the wife must be subject to her husband is not to say that her husband is to toss her around and lord over her like Vlad the impaler, and she must quietly submit. The relationship is to be seen as that of Christ and His Church.

I know most modern women completely reject this idea because they have, at least on some level, accepted part of the feminist revolt that has declared the marriage as some sort of slavery. I also, though, know many who are perfectly at home (pardon the pun) with the traditional teaching of the Church on this issue.

Well, I know a couple of evangelical husbands who insist on this Pauline teaching, with very mixed results. In one case, the wife is apparently very unhappy, and I'm not optimistic about their future together.

I've found, after 27 years with the same woman, that giving her the same consideration you expect her to give you usually works out well, in the long run.

Not everything has to go my way, especially if it's no big deal in the first place.
