That’s what this gentleman, Jerald Lie, believes.
He’s praised his wife for always tending to his needs, and says he chose to marry early because he found a “submissive” wife.
Some though, have condemned Jerald for not respecting his life partner, and say he’s even violating her rights as a modern-day woman.
What do you think?
This is Jerald’s tale:
“Many of my friends actually came to me and asked “Jerald, why did you settle down so early?”
In my mind, I thought, “So early” is relative. 25 years old can be early to some, can be late to others. But to me, I find that the settling down at the age of 25 is perfect. The world will shift and align for a made up mind… 先成家，再立业 … settle down early and focus my energy on my business …
So let me share with you why I chose her…
She is a submissive wife. Wait a minute… before you think I’m MCP… let me clarify… she is someone who really knows how to take care of me. A wife who says that she wants to cook for me… (Majority of the ladies nowadays don’t bother with household chores or cook for their husband haha… no way… her mum brought her up well.) and bothers to wake up early in the morning to prepare breakfast for me. She gives me VIP treatment every day. That’s my ex-girlfriend. My current wife…
She is very willing is submit to me. A lot of people do not understand the power when she does that. The power of submission isn’t where you kowtow to someone or open the door for them. It is just submitting to a common mission where there is an absence of rebellion.
The mission we are in is to lead a prosperous, united and blissful family. She is wholeheartedly willing to let me be the head of the home and choose to play the most important role in my life (my neck). Unknowingly, when she chooses to submit to me, surprisingly, she has the power.
Allow me to explain with an example. When a mentor tries to impart what he knows to his mentee, if the mentee chooses to question everything he said, the mentor knows this person is not coachable. Simply because there is no trust and the mentee has not submitted to him.
On the other hand, if the mentee chooses to do whatever (except anything Illegal, Immoral, Unethical) the mentor says, the mentee has the power because the mentor will feel be even more obligated to help that mentee. So when my wife submits to be, all the more I will listen to her.
At the end of the day, men want respect (which he gets when a woman submits), women want love (they want the man to do whatever to make her happy) … Give love and you shall receive respect…
That’s why I turn down invitations to go drinking. I have got a good liquor tolerance because of my dad but I don’t like to drink. I prefer to stay home and not worry my loved one. I want to stay healthy and enjoy my wealth in the future.
I choose to spend that time with my wife. These are the ways I submit to her too because one of her “love languages” is TIME.
Take a look at this text sent by her!!
Always so sweet and take so much initiative to make me feel loved.
Btw, love is an action word. Not a noun!”
