Anyway, so I promise that I plan to sit down on Wednesday, noon at the latest, to catch up on as many blogs as I can! :) In the mean time, I'll get to a few of you at a time, but please forgive me if I get to some before others.
So Bas had a great question today, I had started to answer it in the comments section, but felt this deserved it's own blog post.
I feel that from a Christian perspective, God really has meant for the man to be the head of the household, and the wife to submit to her husband. I am not sure how that always works out in other marriages, but in ours it was really not working out that way, as I was too afraid to step up, and I think we were both falling into the gender roles the way we witnessed our parents modelling them growing up. I have looked at different marriage books and devotionals and none of them seemed to work for me, but trying DD with my wife seems to click better for our marriage. I think it’s because it sets a clear path as to how the husband can implement his leadership and how the wife can submit to the husband. A female led DD relationship just would not fit into the picture for us.
