To awake chivalry we must return to femininity. We must stop doing the masculine things and become the gentle, tender, dependent women we were designed to be -Helen Andelin
And I brace myself for the feminist attack...
I truly believe that in celebrating the very things that SEPERATE us from men and the male sex, we are actually BEING feminists and supporting all things feminine. i actually wrote about this before in another blog: Feminism and Homemaking. When I found this quote i just thought about how true it is. even to where i have seen a nonchristian write about this very thing.
in her book, The Surrendered Wife, Laura Doyle writes about how by taking over adn taking charge of our relationships and controlling our husbands (not just ourselves and our behavior) we are basically showing them that we DONT need them. we are putting ourselves under unneeded pressure and stress, and frankly, when we do that, it makes them feel like less of a man. while my husband claims he never feels different, i have noticed a difference in his behavior not only in his treatment of me, but in his confidence, when i surrender and submit to him. personally, i have found it the easier way to go, and the happier.
