Nawa o,

All these feminine lists are becoming overwhelming these days.
I think men also have alot to learn to make their marriage work or is it the duty of the woman alone?

@jasmines , the op is only being one sided... going by the Bible verses he attached , they didn't specifically point to the 'woman'
but I guess op is just giving his own tips..on the part of a woman..
but ideally, topic ought to read : 31 rules for men n women, which I don't think anyone needs to be told before doing. it should come with common sense to both parties..

its not the duty of a woman to keep the marriage... its the duty of the parties involved.

@op I guess this doesn't apply to non Christians *cleans sweats*
