I’m 28, Blair is 35.
You’re right that it would be completely disrespectful if the husband completely disregarded the wife’s feelings/opinion….I believe that falls under the “love your wives” part of Sunday’s Gospel.
When you say that if you are not in completely in agreement you make no decision at all…..making no decision is not always an option. Sometimes action must be taken. If you can’t agree and you have to do something, who decides?
I am really not a “modern” person. I am not a feminist. The way I see it, families were a lot happier and less likely to split up when couples were content to fulfill the more “traditional” roles. I don’t need to have my way. I don’t have to be right. I just want to be happy and have and intact family, and if that means being “old-fashioned” so be it.
