"wifely duty"

Ive seen this term used a lot when it comes to marriage and sex. Im sure many post it to get a rise out of others. I personally think it sounds rediculous that it is our "duty" to give our men sex! I know its healthy for a relationship and I def enjoy it. But def wouldnt call it my "duty"! What do you think?

  • LOL, my husband has said that before, "Do your Wifely Duty"! I look at him and say, "what making dinner? Sure you want spam every night.....keep it up and you will be glad to get spam! If you are talking about have two hands....and I will let you know when I want it!" LOL, usually shuts him up for awhile

    We've already proven I fit into his pants, but he can't fit into mine!

  • some christians (and even non christians) say that you're not allowed to say no to your husband when he wants sex, because you're supposed to be submissive.

    i agree with you though :)

  • i agree..but maybe some are'nt happy being married and stay in it for the wrong reasons...maybe they feel like having sex is part of their duty just to keep him from straying so she can hold on to whatever material things are there and thats all the relationship is based on anyway

  • Well if it is considered to be one of my wifely duties it is one I rather enjoy. Much better than cooking and cleaning.
    It annoys me that women feel they have to be submissive in a relationship. My dh and I are partners, if it is my wifely duty to have sex with him, it is just as much so his husbandly duty to help me want to have sex with him.

  • i agree with you! however, since i've completely lost my sex drive while i've been pregnant, i feel awful that i'm not giving my man any. i know it's not my job & he's not an ass about it ever & is very respectful of me, but i do feel bad, like i'm not living up to some expectation. but i think that's all in my head, 'cause like i said, my man never makes me feel bad for not wanting to have sex.
