I'm sure it's not news to you that some people have tried to use this Bible passage to condone unacceptable behavior, such as letting one's husband be verbally, physically, or sexually abusive.
Fortunately, being a doormat to your man is not at all what this international bestseller recommends! (FYI, I don't endorse books or movies that suggest abusive behavior is normal, acceptable, or something women—or anyone else—deserves or should resign themselves to living with.)
Author Constanza Miriano writes truthfully and with an ironic twist about what it means to be a W-O-M-A-N, daughter, friend, wife, mother, caregiver, employee, volunteer, church-goer...while maintaining a great sense of humor.
The epistolary style of this book makes it delightfully approachable and entertaining. In a series of letters to friends and family at different stages in life, Constanza Miriano writes brilliantly and boldly about Catholic theology using wit and humor. She's a woman after my own heart, who still takes the time to write personal letters to loved ones about some of the heavier, meatier topics in life.
At long last, I've found the type of book and author I'd been hoping to encounter, again. Now, I have yet another reason to go to Italy some day. Contanza Miriano is a wife, mother of four, a journalist for Rai (Italian public television), and a freelance writer on education and relationships, who has worked with the Pontifical Council for the Laity. Her wildly popular blog has had over 300 million readers in two years, and she's sold over 70,000 copies of her book in Italy.
Does the call for a wife to 'be submissive' mean it's okay for a man to be cold-hearted, mean, abusive, or vindictive?
Does this passage from Scripture give a man the right to use his wife for his own selfish purposes rather than honoring her in mind, body, and spirit through a loving covenant and commitment that is meant to last for life?
No, not at all! Not now, not ever!
I highly recommend reading Marry Him and Be Submissive by Contanza Miriano. If you are a woman, are related to or married to one, then I'm certain you'll glean something essential from this book that will help improve your insight into the feminine genius.
I'm going out on a limb here, but I genuinely believe that both secular feminists and conservative Christians will find some truths that they can not only identify with, but also agree on in these pages.
I recommend reading it.
Ooop, gotta run. He's wanting his foot massage. I better hit that "SUBMIT" button, before he clobbers mine for me.
