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.”

“[Couples Nursing] is true feminism. CN helps move a woman to a higher status in a relationship. The reason for this is that she becomes the nurturer in a very real way. … I found a lot of feminists who embraced CN. They embraced it because they found it to be very empowering. And that it made them feel more complete as women.”
