How about an opinion, Kayla? I can't imagine a reason not to give one, now. You've seen different points of view. They've all been enlightening in some way.
You sure dont forget! lol Ok here goes....I think he is speaking mainly to young men. I do see a flippant attitude with some young men these days about marriage and how they respect their wives. I dont like to generalize because you can never paint people with the same brush.But I just think that with the way the world is now days there is just not respect for wives like there once was.I dont mean that in a feminist way either,I mean before feminism ever came along. There was a day when to be a married woman was respected by everyone.You called someone Mrs. whomever. I wonder if young people in general understand the seriousness of marriage.We have so many movies based on the "perfect" romance. But like Sis.Angela said, love is a whole lot deeper.My uncle nursed my aunt who died of cancer,she was 43 yrs old.
Marriage is certainly both giving 100% But sometimes women are taken for granted. I dont have children but I was with my sister when she had both of her children. Just to watch a pain a woman goes through having a child. I think the Duck Dynasty star is talking to the younger generation. Respect your wife,dont take her for granted. She goes through a lot to keep her family happy and healthy. Just remember,you get paid to do your job,she doesnt! While Im writing this my wonderful husband is in the kitchen making us supper. So by no means am I putting men down. Sometimes we need to be reminded to appreciate the unsung heroes. Wives do a lot with no word of complaint. Thats my take on what was said.Thanks for all the replies,I enjoyed reading them all!
