As in, 'love, honor and obey.' That last one's not in the standard vows anymore. Now, it is or was 'cherish.'But there's plenty who do. Back in the mid-nineties, a woman I knew got married in Rocky Mount SC. Church was literally a storefront. And the vows explicitly stated that the woman should submit herself to her husband just as he submitted himself to God, and that she would be rewarded in that submission just as her husband would in his........ I remember thinking , "Wow, no kidding, vows like that are still the norm to some folks"
still appreciate doors being opened for them; men who can cook; things like that?
Uh...I think all women like having the door held open for them, being treated with respect and feeling appreciated. In fact, I think all people like that.
This has me wondering all the stories I hear about women that have to get restraining orders. I keep hearing about a bad boy attraction. Well isn't self centered part of the bad boy persona? I scratch my head at the women that procreate with a guy that shows zero potential as a bread winner. So while people will say they like to be treated with respect many of them are lacking self respect.
I only marginally understand the bad boy attraction, but I have to think it has something to do with the girl's self-image - as in, no one ELSE can tame them - but damn - *I* can.
That said, I've told my girls - even as young as they are - if any boy comes to pick them up and leans on the horn to get them to come will deal with my foot up their ass.
No one will disrespect my girls that way. I'm a big believer in "if you make them cry, I will make YOU cry".
Except nowadays instead of honking in your driveway they're just going to text her that they're here and expect the girl to come outside.
