A Woman Was Created To Be Man's Helpmate

Genesis 2:18:18 says, “The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

The Bible indicates that God originally created women to be the helpmate of men. To prevent loneliness and give man a partner to do life with, God gave him the gift of a woman. Is this still relevant even in today’s feministic world? Should a woman still play the role of ‘helpmate’ to her husband?

My husband and I have been doing marriage counseling and leading marriage seminars for over 15 years and we have observed something that may not be “politically correct” to state out loud. Though it may make sense to the logical liberal mind for a woman to do her thing and let the man do his thing, because after all, modern philosophies now would free a woman to be her “own person”, most of the time in the couples we work with, we realise it doesn’t lead to the fulfillment they thought it would. I have come to believe that a woman finds fulfillment in supporting her husband. And I have seen over and over when a woman supports her husband, he will appreciate her, admire her, and desire to be faithful to her. The man who finds his wife is a best friend, a life companion, a lover, a good mother to his children, a business partner will think twice before sleeping around with another woman. He would be a fool to lose such an invaluable gift as her.

It's not uncommon to hear parents...
