100%, absolutely, without-a-doubt, unequivocally, YES!

(just don't tell my wife)

no. they are not slaves to their husbands. they have the choice to disobey their husbands if they want to.

It wouldn't make a difference to most of them even if they did.

Wives vow to love their husbands through good times and bad and it doesnt seem to be a problem,,,, until bad times come.

Yes wives should vow to obey their husbands, but husbands should also vow to love honor and keep their wife. Which would mean not bossing your wife around, but rather making decisions for the two of you based upon your AND YOUR WIFES wishes.

People often misunderstand why women are told to obey their husbands, and thats because most husbands dont understand what it means to be one.

Yes. Every man in the world knows it wouldn't mean a thing, but it would be a nice gesture on her part.

What a ridiculous notion.

"Here, wifey! Fetch! Good wifey, good wifey!" *patpat, gives dog treat*
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 10/8/08 - 5:27:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no they shouldn't obbey.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 10/8/08 - 5:44:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
They have a choice...

Silly, silly question. Could someone be looking to stir up some poo, perhaps?

Marriage is a partnership in love. The word 'obey' doesn't fit in that equation.

I don't have a problem with obey being in wedding vows nor do I have a problem with it not.

I tend to assume when people say "obey" in that sense it means more like "respect" and not grovel at his feet and worship the ground he walks on.

That said, I'd want something basic and the same for both of us. " To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part."

Weddings are dumb, they are stupid... just something to celebrate life into slavery.

Both the husband AND wife vow to love, honor and obey in the common version of the vows. If both are vowing, there is nothing wrong.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 10/8/08 - 8:52:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, and my boyfriend's sister was bothered by that vow so much she wouldn't say it at the wedding and had it changed. I will do the same.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 10/8/08 - 9:24:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, because I can't become a wife, but I can be a husband
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 10/8/08 - 10:45:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no. The wives are free to do what they want not what their husbands want.

I thought that they didn't say the obey part anymore.

No, traditionally, the woman vows to "Love, Honor, and Obey", and the man vows to "Love, Honor, and Cherish".

When I got married, we both vowed to love, honor and cherish, and no one vowed to obey.

I didnt vow to obey. I would have laughed at the officiant if he would have said that.
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 10/9/08 - 10:06:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
its the other way around. women wear pants too

No, if I got married to my boyfriend right now I don't even want to know half the crap he would make me do it we had to vow to obey our husbands. Women are not slaves.

actually, no... i'm not trying to "stir up some poo." and it's not a "silly" question. it's a very important question, because if you make vows to someone, you should keep them. if you aren't going to obey your husband, you shouldn't vow to do so.

i'm actually preparing vows and a quasi-argument occurred regarding whether or not to include the word "obey" in my vows.

That wouldn't be a good idea in any reality.

Only if he promises the same thing. If the man rules over the woman, then that's a good 80 years of feminism wasted.

over a 120, my dear.

1800's already saw women's rights activists.

Probably civil war era.

And don't forget the women who dressed as men and fought as men in the Civil War (there was at least one) they were feminists too.

No I don't think a woman should have to obey her husband, unless he vows the same thing as Kung here.
