Michelle Duggar, mother and star of the TLC reality television series “19 Kids & Counting” was spotted handing out pamphlets on secrets to keep a happy marriage. Her secret: submission.
“A Husband Needs A Wife Who Accepts Him As A Leader And Believes In His God-Given Responsibilities: Husbands are commanded to govern their wives; The more a wife trusts her husband, the more careful he will be in giving her direction; Never ask others for counsel without your husband’s approval; reassure your husband that you understand and believe that he is your God-given leader.”
Duggar even lists her top five ways of keeping the marriage successful.
LOOK AT YOUR HUSBAND ADMIRINGLY WHEN HE TALKS TO OTHERS, IT INSPIRES THEIR RESPECT
If you’ve ever seen an interview with couples on TV, one or both looks at the other approvingly while the other is talking. That’s a sign of respect.
NEVER ASK OTHERS FOR COUNSEL WITHOUT YOUR HUSBAND’S APPROVAL
If there is trouble within your marriage, discuss it together, or seek advice outside of the marriage together.
LET YOUR HUSBAND HEAR YOU PRAISE HIM TO OTHERS
This doesn’t just apply to your husband. This is also a good advice for parents. Let your child hear you praising him or her to others. It will do wonders for their self esteem!
KEEP THE HOME FREE OF CLUTTER
This is very important. A clutter-free environment means a clutter-free marriage.
LEARN TO COMMUNICATE.
