Moral Decline

Documenting The Moral Decline That Threatens To Destroy America

In The United States It Is Women Who Rule The Home - And Most Men Are Okay With That

A shocking study done by the respected Pew Research Center reveals that in the United States it is women who predominantly rule at home.

The study surveyed 1,260 individuals who were either married or living together. What the study found was that in 43% of all couples, women make more decisions in the four areas Pew surveyed: planning weekend activities, household finances, major home purchases and TV watching.

26% of the time men make more of the decisions, the survey revealed, and 31% of the time the decisions are made "equally".

So should we be surprised? Can we all not see that the women wears the pants in most families now?

For example, one respondent to the USAToday article on this survey wrote this:

"I am a manager at work, and wouldn't have it any other way. But when I get home, I'd much rather chill out and let the wife make the calls."

The truth is that we have trained a generation of American men to be immature, subservient, submissive wimps who are very hesitant to take responsibility or leadership.

Just watch just about any sitcom or any commercial or any movie with these issues in mind. Watch who the dominant or responsible partner in any couple is. Once you know to look for it you will see it everywhere.

This is not how a society should work.

The Bible teaches that men should be strong, powerful, sacrifical servant-leaders as we see in Ephesians 5:25:

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

The truth is that men need to be so strong for their wives and children that they need to be ready to die for their families if it comes down to that.

Wow, how far we are from that ideal today.
