    Meh. I’m not wild about having greenery on a pizza. Cheese and meat. Crust is optional.

    This is definitely a misplaced comment, but I’m curious what you think about the idea of Christian Domestic Discipline. I’ve never hear of this before and have a hard time believing it exists. http://www.christiandomesticdiscipline.net/christiandomesticdisciplinespankinghome.html

      Assuming it’s legit, there’s no biblical basis for this type of physical discipline. There are plenty of verses about correcting children using physical punishment, but none whatsoever for a wife. I skimmed through some of the articles but I could see already they’re making faulty premises such as indicating that this discipline would of course be consensual in nature, which makes no sense. I certainly didn’t give consent when my dear mother horse whipped me for setting the carpet on fire, knowhatimasayin? Physical discipline by its very definition would not be consensual.

      In the few biblical instances that the Bible discusses an out of control wife/woman, the response by a husband is not discipline, but making himself scarce.

      It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman. Proverbs 21:19

      Hey, that’s where I am! *waves*

      Contemplating this further, this act of removing himself makes sense. If a wife won’t submit to him as the head of the household, what’s the point of being around? Time to go fishing! It also has the added benefit of giving her a chance to cool off until she’s in a better frame of mind.

      I’d say that the passive aggressive approach is a bit of a non-starter too. I’ve seen this pattern modeled by a couple I know. He ended up spending little or not time at home and she resented him for it and made the time he did spend there hellish which reinforced his behavior.

      Human beings are capable of rational communication we ought to us it. If she then refuses to discuss the issue rationally go to someone you trust to mediate. The point is to preserve the relationship not to “win.” Christ did not model Winning. He modeled servant hood, forgiveness and ultimately sacrifice.

      I be slapped with the White Knight label for this but every time women are told to submit to their husband men are told to love sacrifice and understand them. these are issued as independent commands. There is no out if one side is not pulling their side of the bargain.

      Yeah, both members need to do their part. A husband can be as masculine and alpha as he can be, but if the wife is not willing to submit, game over. That’s one thing feminists who wrinkle their noses at natural gender roles tend to gloss over. Submission is a choice women must freely make.
