For years, progressives have told women to beware of men who are apparently constantly dreaming of oppressing them, yet, in my experience, it's often women who are other women's greatest enemy. Of course, I'm not talking here of criminal cases when a woman becomes a victim of mugging and violence, but rather about day-to-day encounters with people.
One thing which is often under attack, is your marriage. They say "misery loves company" and they are right. Women who have a bad marriage or relationship or are single/divorced will often do everything possible to destroy yours. I will right now put a disclaimer saying that not everyone is like that, but too many are, and what is worse, they are often doing it unconsciously, and sometimes, even under the guise of religion.
There is something all Christians should keep in mind: our religion explicitly FORBIDS divorce, with few caveats, which some churches, like the Catholics or some IF Baptists interpret as non-existent. God doesn't want you to be happy if it means divorcing your husband. God explicitly states in His Scriptures that He hates divorce. Yes, there are possible exceptions, but the general principle is that you should stay together until Death do us part. Being bored/communication problems/not enough romance IS NOT one of those exceptions.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the husband is the head of the family. While I do think that some interpretations of this principle go too far, it still means that you should at the very least, listen to his opinions and preferences and try to act accordingly. If he has a preference for you to stay home, you shouldn't be running out to get a job "to be independent".
You see, that's the first line of attack on your family. It works like this: a lady will complain (nowadays often online) that she isn't satisfied with her marriage, usually for some trivial reason like there is no sparkle any more or something similar and if somebody could give her advice on how to improve the situation. May be, she's really looking for the solutions or may be she just wants to vent, the result often is that a dozen other women (most of them divorced) will tell her how all men s**k, how she needs to plan for divorce (and even how to frame her husband for non-existing abuse) and at the very least, that she should be "her own person" and totally independent from her husband.
The sad part is that some of these women consider themselves Christians. There is something seriously wrong with your head if you think that a Christian woman could commit adulteries against her husband (I've seen this recommended, too) and stay in God's Will.
Housewives are even more of a target since the first thing they will hear if they ever complain (and even if they don't) is that they urgently need to find a job, because didn't ya know you should have your own money and stuff. Here the homewrecker (because make no mistake, that's what these women are) will usually apply a double-edge tactic: on the one hand, you should feel ashamed for making your poor husband work so hard, but on the other hand, all men are dastards and you should get a job as not to depend on this pig.
Unfortunately, it works on some weak minds. The woman, egged on by friends and family, will look for ways to get more independent which inevitably leads to the divorce court and sometimes worse, and then when she discovers that single life isn't all it's cracked up to be, she'll try to start another relationship, but will make the same mistakes.
For a Christian lady, you should be guided by God's Word, not your emotions or the herd of bitter women out there. And, apart from that, folks in the West often have very unrealistic expectations about what your (married) life should be. While in some countries people are grateful if they have enough to feed their children, Western women often expect their life to be one big holiday, without any mundane stuff such as scrubbing the toilets or changing diapers. It simply doesn't work this way but unfortunately, that's exactly the image presented by modern entertainment where the heroines often live the life of constant glamour and excitement.
In my previous post, I linked to the couple of articles about European centenarians. An interesting thing is that the majority of them live in small isolated villages and hardly ever watch TV so that they are content with what they have. Contentment is really the key to happiness and long life, I think we should all remember it.
Also, you shouldn't expect your husband to be your girl-friend. Men are different. Try to build a support network of good friends and family because women need a bit of gossiping and socialising, but avoid bitter types at all costs, otherwise your family may very well be next to be destroyed.
