The picture of a woman finding comfort and security in a strong man is biblical and praiseworthy but it’s media brainwashing. It only tells half the story.
“Christ doesn’t need the Church like husbands need their wives. While men are called to be spiritual and financial nurturers, women are to be nutritional and emotional nurturers. Ephesians 5:21-33 implicitly says God intends nurturing in marriage to be a two way street. Yes, it’s extremely biblical and beautiful for men to be nurtured by their wives.”

“Then Isaac brought her into the tent of Sarah his mother and took Rebekah, and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.”

It is not solely a media problem. This is a societal problem. Men feel like it is a sign of weakness to let themselves be loved and nurtured by a woman. This is a lie! It takes quite a bit of strength to seek love .
