. . . from the beginning, [Satan] has worked with a vengeance to distort the very definition of womanhood and to confuse everyone about us, including us. Here are just a few of [Satan’s] lies: That men are smarter, have all the power, and are more important, so if we want to have influence we should be more like them; that marriage and family are confining; that motherhood is menial and a waste of any talented woman’s time; that women are perpetually frazzled and failing; and that a woman’s value is based on her size, shape and what she accomplishes outside the home. Too many women have bought these lies. Our culture is disintegrating at the speed of light, and unfortunately, our gender is doing a lot of the damage.
~Sheri Dew, ["Awake, Arise, and Come Unto Christ" a speech given at 2008 BYU Women's Conference]
Indeed, so many men buy into the above stereotypes as well. Men, a Good Husband stands up for his wife, cares for her, and encourages her. He also defends her against such abuse and goes out of his way to keep it from ever coming to her. When he fails in his duty, he owns up to that responsibility and makes it right. No matter how late it is at night or how much stress he’s under.
