Plenty of women, attorneys or not, follow the Christian faith, “die to self”, and submit to their Lord’s and their husband’s leadership (as taught in the Bible.) I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t personally met one yet, but, let’s please be logical and not assume/deduce that your anecdotal evidence covers the spread. Okay?

Umm no way! We are equal partners in our marriage and parenting. Honestly the idea of obeying my husband because he’s the man makes me sick.

alamana:  I Still don’t see how this has anything to do with this post. Just because I did not mention anything about my experience does not mean anything. In fact, all I was doing was telling the lady to not go on a power trip. Please reread the post before you post again. Do you want to know my address, my Social Security number, what time I wake up in the morning, when I go to sleep? Really? Come on now. And yes, of course I passed the bar

alamana:  I don’t see how choosing to stay home or being submissive to your husband means you support sexism. I am fully capacble of doing my own things. I was going to school for geophysics before I got really sick. So  I am staying at home and focusing on my health but really if I choose not to go back to work or school and just support my Fiance than I am f\ree to choose to do that. I think you do a disservice to women and their choice. Is that not feminism having the right to choose what works best for you?

I reread the post. You identified yourself as a paralegal and said some total nonsense about how paralegals know more about documents than lawyers do. You also said something about the lawyers being on power trips. You aren’t a lawyer. Come on. Admit it.

BalletParker:  exactly, I work as a paralegal. Because I like it. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a law degree, I just don’t practice law. And it is my choice to do so. I still don’t see how this has anything to do with the original post

Why are y’all bringing drama from another thread into this one? Not only is it a TOS violation, but this thread already has enough drama as it is, right?

Monikax3x3:  It was fair for her to ask. Not everyone who goes to law school takes the bar (or passes), and it is rather unusual to come across someone who went to trouble of law school and passing the bar to work as a paralegal. Where I am, paralegals actually very rarely have law degrees, as they take other specialized training for that. Being a lawyer and being a paralegal are very different things where I am, though I know in some jurisdictions paralegals have a bit more responsibility and can work more direct with and for clients in some areas.

When did you graduate law school? I just wonder because you say you are mid 20s and have been at your office at least 1.5 years (since that is how long you have worked with that woman who you made disparaging remarks about), so trying to understand timing as that makes things very crunched time wise…did you go direct from your bachelors degree into law school?

My FH and I discussed the household.  I certainly acknowledge that my FH will be the head of our household.  He definitely will be the one wearing the pants.  I am a headstrong independent type of gal and he knows that so if I do challenge him per se on a decision that he makes he knows it is not without merit.  Honestly, I am not concerned about “obeying” him per se because he is super smart and almost always gets it right.  Having been so independent for so long it will feel wonderful to give the reins over to someone else.  I’ll keep an eye open though and believe me what I don’t agree, he will know it.

alamana:  oh for heaven sake I’m going to stop responding to you. Your questions are irrelevant. My job title is a paralegal, has nothing to do with this post.  I was trying to give some advice to the other girl in the other thread. We do have a lawyer in our office that is on the constant power trip. She is 52 years old & is a raging bitch.

NFLwidow:  well, it wouldn’t be a thread without you warning posters you don’t agree with that they are violating TOS.

which is really ironic and funny coming from you, who insult and bait people when it suits you.

but at any rate, I’m sure you’ve already reported this lol.

By the way, everyone was debating things just fine and the poster asked everyone to reread her comment, until you stepped in to threaten us with TOS. 

The topic ‘Do you obey your husband?’ is closed to new replies.
