“And God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make a help meet for him.” Genesis 2:18
Henry Makow Ph.D. — April 26, 2014
I wish I understood the following 40 years ago when I was 24.
Men, marry a helpmate, not a soul-mate. I have been married to one for 13 years. It works for me. If you can find a “soul-mate,” I tip my hat to you.
To those who say helpmates are boring, I say “hallelujah.” I don’t depend on my marriage for excitement. However, my wife is not what feminists call “a doormat.” She has a masters degree and a career. She’s smart, honest and has a good sense of humour.
“You contradict everything I say,” I tell her. “Not all the time,” she replies.
So, here’s my advice in ten points.
1. Man is governed by his thoughts. Imagine a steak and he salivates. Imagine a beautiful half-naked woman in handcuffs and he gets aroused. Whoever controls his thoughts controls him. Obviously, it’s best if hecontrols his own thoughts.
