Does This Book Take Away Women’s Rights and Can Someone Explain It Please?

Question by Deborah: Does this book take away women’s rights and can someone explain it please?
It’s called ‘Making Your Family Life Happy’. It is a study aid to the bible from Watchtower Society. Page 62 to 65 ‘The Weepers, The Naggers.’ On page 64-65 it says “Better to live alone in the desert than with a nagging and ill-tempered wife.” “Endless dripping on a rainy day – that is what a nagging wife is like. As well to try to control the wind as to control her!” Proverbs 17:9, 19:13, 21:19, 27:15-16. Then it says “Why do the scriptures single out the wife for this counsel? . . . . ”

I can’t see how the scriptures ‘single out’ women only for this counsel. It seems you have only chosen to pick out the scriptures that show women behave like this and omitted the ones which prove that men apply emotional pressure also. E.g. Amnon when he put pressure on Jehonadab and King David in order to take advantage of his sister, by whingeing about being ill. 2 Sam 13.

I Have Had Enough. Should I Leave Him?

Question by Lauren: I have had enough. Should I leave him?
My husband and I have been married for a little over 3 months now, but we have been together for 3 years. Our relationship has always had its ups and downs just like every other relationship but now its at the point where I don’t know what to do. We were in “marriage counseling” for about 7 months before we actually got married to try to resolve some of our problems (before anyone says “well you shouldn’t have married him anyway if you were in counseling that long” the last 3 months of the counseling he had made a real turn around). It seems that we fight all the time and last night I decided that I have had enough. These are just some of the things that we have discussed/fought over since we have been together:
