    Will reap with a joyful shout." - Psalm 126

      • Thanks for that Still. I hadn't read that in probably 20 yrs. I don't remember any of the sermons that mentioned this ever teaching that the husband is to serve his wife as well, it was one sided.

        In premarital counseling, I was given quite a lengthy talkin to by my pastor's wife regarding my duty. Lol
        I asked her what if I liked it and it wasn't a drudgery to perform my duty.

            • I think we complicate things too much, let our emotions cloud reason. The reality is that women and men are totally different sexually and have contrasting needs. Women are here to have babies... men are here to have sex. Simple!

              • So, easy, using that idea, why do women cheat?

                • Oh, wow, Kitty! There's a question!
                  I'd like to see this discussed.

                    I believe men and women cheat for pretty much the reasons I mentioned in my post above. Men cheat for the sexual stimulation and women cheat for emotional stimulation.

                      are men and women really THAT different?

                      I would think a lot of women would say they are not here to make babies.....

                        And I'm not the only man not here for sex.

                          I believe that

                          but also believe that can apply for men, too

                          • But you said, women are here to make babies...
                            Then you said they cheat for emotional support?

                            Are you suggesting women wanna make babies with their lovers or that women use children for emotional support?

                              How true. Not all sex is just for the physical stimulation, for men no more than for women.
                              "Cheating" may be a cry for emotional intimacy.
