According to the founder of Genevieve Magazine, she has also been married to her husband for 39 years and she wholeheartedly disagrees with the pastor’s word as she asserted that it is unhealthy for a woman to play a fool just because she wants to maintain peace in her home.
She added that it is emotionally and physically draining for a woman to act like her husband is always right just to show that she is submissive.
“Eeeya. I have been married 39 years too… Playing a fool for that long to maintain peace in the name of submissiveness or respect for your spouse is unhealthy; mentally, emotionally and physically. Gosh! But if the formula is working for her marriage I salute her,” she said.
