The Importance of Understanding Masculinity

By Candice Smith Adelewole When I got married it was the first time in my life that I had ever lived with a man from the time my parents had gotten divorced at the age of 7. Yikes! It was the first time in all those years hearing a male voice every single day, or observing male behavior first hand on a regular basis.Being raised in a female dominated family environment didn’t prepare me for married life. I had to learn many things the hard way.I had to learn that men have feelings too, and need quiet space to think their problems out. That them saying no, isn’t necessarily out of being mean or controlling, but their hardwired instincts to protect and provide for the people they care about. After deep studying and reflecting on masculinity and men, I learned that men and women have tw...

Trusting Your Husband to Lead

By Wifey For Lifey Group There is something so beautiful about a woman who is thoughtful and insightful enough to understand the force of nature that she is and natural power she wields when she is herself and is more than comfortable navigating her own lane. Why try to behave and think like a man when she can understand his nature and work on perfecting her own??? Great advice given by the founder of Wifey for Lifey Group below: A Masculine mas would rather feel unloved than inadequate or disrespected. I recently received a DC from a wife about how her husband has not been receptive to her request for him to take off work due to his health issues. She can see that he is stressed out, but feels angry because it appears that he is not listening to her. First, I want to say th...

I Chose To Be A Stay-At-Home Wife

This article was originally published as "I'm A Stay At Home Wife" in the May 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan Jen Williams, 32, traded in her traditional career for days spent walking the dogs, making the beds and being a "professional wife." I never planned to be a stay-at-home wife. After graduating college, I got my master's degree in library science and quickly landed a job at a library. At first, I thought it was what I'd wanted. I was never the girl who could sing or dance or act or do sports. I was the good student ... the reader. That was my identity. But over the course of the six years I spent at a public library in Nashville (where I live), my workload tripled ... and my salary didn't. I went from being a librarian to being a librarian/volunteer coordinator/PR person. Those ...

Ode to the Stay At Home Mom

It's with gratitude that I take time to beautify myself and environment. Go-slow was a well earned decision after years of working outside the home while raising a family. But first, I needed to choose a man who appreciated a woman basking in her #feminine role as wife and Mother. Go-slow can not be accomplished with a man who values a "do-it-all" stressed out, overworking, overwhelmed woman. I know, in my heart, that a majority of women would consider go-slow as a viable choice if they weren't afraid of social and familial condemnation. The excerpt below from Dr. Laura Schlessinger's book sums up my current mood:"If you decide that the most important thing about your life is your worker-ant role, you’ll likely feel drained a lot of the time and resent the obliga...
