Just a quick word on submission, because sometimes it really amuses me to watch other couples.
God did design the woman to submit to the man. And this is not a bad thing! He in turn must protect & provide for her. A fair trade off.
That's why men do not respond well to women who try to control them. Just a natural instinct.
But praise gets anyone faster results than criticism. Honey catches more flies. That's also a fact of life.
And a good one to live by.
A man will respond positively to compliments, acceptance, and apporval. He will respond negatively to nagging, controlling, and manipulating. - Gary Smalley
