So parts of this Michelle Duggar-endorsed wife guide made the rounds back in February, but I’ve only just stumbled across it and I feel there’s a section that’s been overlooked. The guide — “Seven Basic Needs of a Husband” — was written by Duggar’s former pastor, Cliff Palmer, and is available in its entirety (along with one for husbands) on the Duggar family website. It’s mostly what you’d expect, full of things like –
I. A HUSBAND NEEDS A WIFE WHO RESPECTS HIM AS A MAN.
A MAN WANTS TO PROVE HIS MANLINESS.
HOW DOES A WIFE DESTROY HER HUSBAND’S MANLINESS?
A. By Expecting Him To Know What Protection She Needs .
TELL YOUR HUSBAND HOW HE CAN PROTECT YOU.
– and these are mainly the kinds of things from it that people have highlighted. But this is a health site. I think we should focus on Section E: Your Weight Is A Symbol Of Your Husband’s Leadership And Your Self-Control As His Wife.
