Some suggestions for the wives out there...


With the recent recent Ted Haggart contraversy, some evangelicals have been doing damage control. One evangelical blogger is making suggestions to help pastors to avoid bad situations. Some of what he said makes a lot of sense, but one suggestion kind of sticks out.

It is not uncommon to meet pastors’ wives who really let themselves go; they sometimes feel that because their husband is a pastor, he is therefore trapped into fidelity, which gives them cause for laziness. A wife who lets herself go and is not sexually available to her husband in the ways that the Song of Songs is so frank about is not responsible for her husband’s sin, but she may not be helping him either.

So, I've been married for over 7 years now, and sometimes my wife "let(s) herself go". You know, I sometimes get the hankering for a male prostitute and some Meth.
