Keeping things exciting and maintaining a certain level of intimacy is a legitimate answer to the question at hand. However, 47-year-old Duggar went a different and a bit more disturbing route, saying that the secret was to "say yes ... even when you're tired."
Now, to us, that just seems ridiculous. Why must you perform according to every beck and call? Is that really a wife's job?
She went on to elaborate on her point: "In your marriage there will be times you're going to be very exhausted ... Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has. You always need to be available when he calls."
Not to get all feminist on you, but isn't that a tad bit sexist? If you're not feeling it, we have the right to say, "No, maybe tomorrow."
Sure, Mr. Duggar gives her breaks every now and again—and by that, we mean after she's GIVEN BIRTH (thanks, pal) or when she's on her period. Gee, how nice! What about when Mrs. Duggar is tired? She's not allowed to say, "No thanks"? Seems a little one-sided to us.
What do you think about the way the Duggars' marriage works?
