Data Myrtle Linder I am 86 years old and retired but not from workning for GOD!
As is GOD'S plan for the family, MAN should be at the head of every family, HE created man, but not to play the roll of GOD, but was to be at the head of the household, the leader, the defender of outside dangers; providing food and clothing, but most of all "love". He, following GOD'S instructions to do these things, in love, not in dominance! 

The woman stands at his side helping, not hindering him in their combined work, to care and supply the need for home and family, with GOD at their head as well as at their side, continuing to guide them and support them. Very often, families are daring to deny the man, a chance to even be heard, but never to lead.,choosing to listen to the directions of Satan, who is one dedicated in breaking families up and scattering them, instead of holding them together! Satan plants greed and a need to rule in the the hearts of many men and women and these people feel that the must lead and will lead or drive as some of the actions, can be fairly described. This kind of action is never a winner, because very few people will accept actions, that they consider "demands!"

Therefore the shouting and the fighting, separation of families, wrecked homes and finally divorce is the result., with no happy winners! GOD has been left by the wayside and Satan is grinning fro ear to ear!
