Internet is quarrelling over this man’s “submissive” wife


(From the FB wall of Jerald Lie)

It started out as an innocent post on Facebook: a man and woman got engaged, he’s happy and he left a post saying how much he loves his wife. And how much he loves his wife for being “submissive”.

What he didn’t think would happen was that the internet disagreed to agree with him.

Here we go, the full text from his page.


“This lady simply left me speechless. 

Many of my friends actually came to me and asked “Jerald, why did you settle down so early?”

In my mind, I was thinking, “So Early” is relative. 25 years old can be early to some, can be late to others. But to me, I find that the settling down at the age of 25 is perfect. The world will shift and align for a made up mind… 先成家,再立业 … settle down early and focus my energy on my business …

So let me share with you why I chose her…

She is a submissive wife. Wait a minute.. before you think i’m MCP… let me clarify.. she is someone who really knows how to take care of me. A wife who says that she wants to cook for me…(ladies nowadays don’t bother about household chores, cook for husband haha… no way.. her mum brought her up well.) someone who bothered to wake up early in the morning to prepare breakfast for me. Gives me VIP treatment every day. – That’s my ex-girlfriend… my current wife…

She is very willing is submit to me. A lot of people does not understand the power when she does that. The power of submission isn’t where you kowtow to someone or open the door for them. It is just submitting to a common mission where there is an absence of rebellion. The mission we are in is to lead a prosperous, united and blissful family. She is more than willing to let me be the head of the house and choose to play the most important role in my life (my neck). Unknowingly, when she chooses to submit to me, surprisingly, she has the power.

Allow me to explain with an example… when a mentor tries to impart what he knows to his mentee, if the mentee chooses to question everything he said, the mentor knows this person is not coachable. Simply because there is no trust and the mentee haven’t submitted to him. On the other hand, if the mentee chooses to do whatever (except anything Illegal, Immoral, Unethical) the mentor says, the mentee has the power because the mentor will feel even more obligated to help that mentee. So when my wife submits to me, all the more I will listen to her.

At the end of the day, man wants respect (when a woman submits), woman wants love (the man will do whatever to make her happy)… Give love and you shall receive respect…

That’s why when my friend asks me out for a drink, I don’t go even though I have got a good liquor tolerance because of my dad. – because I don’t like to drink, prefer to stay home not let my loved one worry and I want to stay healthy and enjoy my wealth in future. But instead, I choose to spend that time with my wife. These are the ways I submit to her too cause one of her “love language” is TIME.

Take a look at this text sent by her!! always so sweet and take so much initiative to make me feel loved

Btw, love is an action word. Not a noun!

P.S I know I’ve made many grammatical mistakes in my posts. I hope to find a friend who is willing to help me to edit my language. I love brutal honesty.
