Louisa Westropp (born 1858), following a marriage characterised by constant domestic violence, sued her husband for divorce on the grounds of cruelty. Before Irish independence, cruelty was, in theory, legal grounds for divorce.....

..... but men were considered to have the right to physically 'chastise' their wives, as women at that time had few rights (including the right to custody of their own children) cruelty was almost never cited in #divorce proceedings.

It was the first time an #Irish #woman sued her husband for divorce on grounds of cruelty, and it set a legal precedent. Terrible as things were for Louisa, they were much worse for women from less wealthy backgrounds.

RELATIONSHIP STRUGGLES //
WHEN TO PACK IT UP

🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵🧵

#gedankenvonnailah #taglicherenewal
It takes a very STEELY CONVICTION to tell someone that you LOVE DEEPLY, that as much as you LOVE them, you’re not afraid to walk away from that relationship. Because staying in conformity w/ God’s purpose for your life is of paramount importance to you.
To get a wee bit personal here, I’ve had to say goodbye to several relationships w/ very high profile, prolific & well-to-do men. The exact minute that it became abundantly clear that our values did not align.

God created us in His image, male & female - an essential pairing for the creation of life.

Likewise, God has both masculine & feminine attributes - vital for the creation of Spiritual Life.

This thread👇explores Christian traditions of the feminine.

The female Sophia/Wisdom:

Listen as Wisdom calls out!

Hear as understanding raises her voice!
...
By the gates at the entrance to the town, on the road leading in, she cries aloud, "I call to you, to all of you!

1/ Never heard a sermon on this.️🔝

Typical response:

Us: What's your understanding of Feminine Wisdom (or in Hebrew "Chochmah") in Proverbs 8?

Pastor: 😕
Long, awkward pause.

Us: So ... the #SBC doesn't teach Feminine Wisdom?

Pastor (checks watch): Well, gotta go! 🏃

Love is less surprise getaways to romantic locales, and more quiet faithfulness, getting up early every day to take care of family & work to provide.

Love is less fireworks exploding while you hold each other, and more enveloping embraces while you break down in tears. #marriage
Love is less snappy comebacks and brilliant quips, and more "I love you, goodnight", night after night, week after week, decade after decade.

Love is less trendy fashion choices, and more sweatpants & t-shirts while we serve one another when we feel our worst. #marriage
Love is less the one who can sweep you off your feet, and more of the one who can be there in 30 years.

Love is less Disney, and more of the quiet older couple who no one knows but who has been faithful for decades. #marriage

2/ Last night this is what happened…

NOTE: the family wants to share their story to offer a glimpse of love ❤️ on all levels

For 3 years, Mark took care of Sharon, his #bride, as she battled breast #cancer. It relentlessly spread to her bones. He never stopped giving.
3/ She could tell he was spent and getting sick himself. “Mark, let’s get you to the doctor!” “Not until you are well, Sharon.” He remained laser focused on her every need. As she became weaker, he took her to get admitted yesterday.

A-Z of autism from a personal autistic perspective.

‘M’s Marmite, marriage and myopia.

#AutismAcceptanceMonth

1/
One of the ‘L’s I didn’t mention was likeability.

The desire to be liked is a strong motivation for many of us.

Just look at social media.

So it was hard in my teens when I started to become a bit of a Marmite person.

Opinion about my likeability was strongly divided.

2/
No one is liked by everyone. But this was a bit different.

Some people went out of their way to let me know that I wasn’t liked.

Perhaps the constant smile I’d assumed looked too smug.

Maybe they thought the snubs weren’t getting home to me.

So they told me, maliciously.

Marriage - Togetherness

Marriage is primarily for companionship but in the midst of work/business, family and children, we sometimes forget this purpose. Make time to do things together, pray, play and watch movies together.
Also, deliberately create time to talk about yourself, your plans and your prayer points. Enjoy each other's company and strengthen each other. Sexual intercourse bonds couple. Your marriage goes from strength to strength in Jesus name.
But because there is so much sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband. The husband should fulfill his wife's sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband's needs.

Marriage - Finances

Family finances is one of the most thorny issues in marriage. But it shouldn't be. Both have become one and the prosperity of one is the prosperity of the both.
In addition, headship comes with responsibilities, the husband must know that the care of the family falls primarily on him. While the wife should and will help out when needed, the responsibility of provision is that of the husband. The Lord prosper you abundantly in Jesus name
After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."

Marriage - Love her

It is worth noting that husbands are constantly admonished to love their wives, and the only worthy comparison of the type of love is that which Christ has for the church. Sacrificial loving and building her up with the word.
Treat her with respect and understanding. When you love your wife, you are actually loving yourself and eliminating hindrances to your prayers. Again the instruction to love is independent of whether your wife submits or not. Just keep loving her.
Husbands, go all out in your love for your wives, exactly as Christ did for the church--a love marked by giving, not getting. Christ's love makes the church whole. His words evoke her beauty. Everything he does and says is designed to bring the best out of her, dressing her in..

Marriage - submit to him

The basic instruction for a wife in scriptures is to submit to the husband. Submission is acknowledging that even though you are both equal partners in the marriage, the husband is the leader.
Submission is not agreement and he will not always be right, but it is honouring him as the head and deferring to him. And please note ma that it is an independent instruction, you submit even when he is not showing love as you want it.
Wives be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.

Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

Marriage - Forgiveness

If there is one ingredient most important in a marriage, that would be forgiveness. A perfect marriage is not made up of perfect individuals rather it is made of persons who have perfected the art of forgiving.
Make allowance for each other's faults and forgive each other genuinely from your heart without reference to past wrongs. You are strengthened in Jesus name.
Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too."

Marriage - God's idea

Despite the distortions, marriage is not a social, ethnic or cultural construct, it is God's idea, it originates from God. It's purpose is for companionship, pleasure, procreation and extending the divine mandate of dominating and subduing the earth.
Thus to make marriage work, the husband and wife must leave their social or cultural marriage biases and embrace God's manual for a successful marriage, the Bible. Build your marriage on God's word.
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them ...

The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

Marriage - wedding day

Yes, that joyous day of your dreams is finally here. It is the beginning of a journey of many decades. But note, you are not the only celebrant, both parents have also been looking forward to this day, so give them some allowance.
Don't spend beyond your abilities, it is only a day afterall. Basically only 4 things are necessary: Legal acceptance, parental consent, at least 2 witnesses and vows before God represented by the priest, shikena.
That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

But if a man thinks that he's treating his fiancée improperly and will inevitably give in to his passion, let him marry her as he wishes. It is not a sin.

“Now king David was old and stricken in years; and they covered him with clothes, BUT HE GAT NO HEAT.” 1 Kings 1:1
It is sad that many people go into relationships without knowing the difference between FEELING COLD/HAVING COLD, & FEELING HEAT/GETTING HEAT.
#marriage
Clothes that were put on David could have brought some feelings of heat, but they noted that there was no transfer of heat! Why? It was because David was not feeling cold, what happened to David was that he got cold! David had cold.
#marriage #issuesofmarriage
A man who is feeling cold is not the same as the one who has cold. With good layers of clothes, the one who is feeling cold might feel heat and get better, but winter clothes cannot make a man who has cold get heat! The one who has cold needs proper attention, adequate treatment!

This topic needs more understanding of Genomics-Gotra applicable to Humans, except liberals.
start looking at the genomes and similarities.
The size of the bovine genome is 3GB (3 billion base pairs).

It contains approximately 22,000 genes of which 14,000 are common to all mammalian species. Bovines share 80% of their genes with humans.
Cows are less similar to humans than rodents. we share 85% DNA with a mouse. Maybe why we have temple for rats also.

Cows also have about 1,000 genes that they share with dogs and rodents but not identified in humans.

APPRECIATION

#Ingratitude gives birth to different problems.

You must ever be #grateful to the Lord and your spouse for the gift of #marriage. Learn to be appreciative of whatever your spouse does or gives, no matter how little. /1

#Xmas #Christmas #MotivationalQuotes #family
Sometimes, as a woman, your husband does not have enough means to take care of everything in the home. Learn to still be grateful for the little.

Be understanding. Life is truly in phases. What you can't afford today, will surely come tomorrow.

I know that there are some men

...that shirk their #responsibilities. Such #men are mere boys. But in a situation where the case is genuine, please bear with your #husband. Assist him where possible.
