I know, I know, most of you are rolling your eyes that I’m even writing this Duggar post. I get it, I do, but someone believe me when I tell you that no one is rolling their eyes more than I am! My head hurts from rolling my eyes so much!
Michelle Duggar, human baby making machine, recently gave some marital advice on her Duggar Family website, and after reading it you’ll have to remind yourself that we actually live in 2015 not 1915 because obviously the post is raising some eyebrows.
In the blog post Michelle talks about some marital advice she received from her friend Gala that she claims is the best advice she’s ever received. She writes that Gala said to her;
“You’ve got to remember this. Anyone can iron Jim Bob’s shirt, anybody can make lunch for him. He can get his lunch somewhere else. But you are the only one who can meet that special need that he has in his life for intimacy. You’re it. You’re the only one. So don’t forget that, that he needs you. So when you are exhausted at the end of the day, maybe from dealing with little ones, and you fall into bed so exhausted at night, don’t forget about him because you and he are the only ones who can have that time together. No one else in the world can meet that need.”
“And so be available, and not just available, but be joyfully available for him. Smile and be willing to say, ‘Yes, sweetie I am here for you,’ no matter what, even though you may be exhausted and big pregnant and you may not feel like he feels. ‘I’m still here for you and I’m going to meet that need because I know it’s a need for you.’ ”
So if I’m reading this correctly, Michelle Duggar is telling women that it really doesn’t matter what they want, it doesn’t matter what needs they have, they really don’t matter at all. Even if you’re 8 months pregnant and your back hurts and your feet hurt and you can’t sleep because the baby keeps you up all night, none of that matters if your husband is horny. Too exhausted after running around after the kids all day? Too bad! If your husband wants to get busy you better put a smile on your face and go at it. Not feeling well but your husband is in the mood? Doesn’t matter how you feel, your’re the only one your husband can have sex with so you better make him feel good and worry about yourself on your own time! Because apparently marriage is simply a one way street so as long as you’re taking care of your man it doesn’t matter what you want or need or desire! It’s not surprising that her daughters are pregnant before they can even celebrate a year of marriage and her son has admitted to a cheating scandal.
So Hot Moms, what do you think of Michelle Duggar’s marriage advice?
