[b]Slavery to a bad husband!/b](William Secker, "The Wedding Ring")"Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them." Colossians 3:19 If the woman is a help to the man--thenlet not the man cast dirt on the woman!Secundus treated his wife like a servant! But surely he was a monster--and not a man! He was fitter for a tomb to bury him--than a womb to bear him!It is evil to play 'the butcher' with that gentle gender, which has no arms but for embraces. Because they are the 'weaker vessels'--shall we break them all to pieces? A wife must never be sharply driven--but sweetly drawn. Compassion may bend her--but compulsion will break her! Husband and wife should act towards each other with consent--not by constraint!The husband must provide for the wife's necessities. You must not be a drone--and she a drudge! Many husbands waste that money in luxury--which should supply their wives necessity! They have neither the piety of a true Christian--nor the love of a true husband. It is a sad spectacle to see a wife in slavery to a bad husband--who keeps her under his fetters!
