I was researching what these words in Genesis mean in reference to woman-man relationship and I Am getting different interpretations. However I would love to hear from my women readers.
These are the words in Genesis 3:16:”Your desire shall be for your husband.”
Superficially, for a woman to desire her husband would mean having a sexual desire for him, which is a blessing of course! However, these words are part of a longer curse pronounced upon the woman after the fall from grace, so they are not “good” words.
Some Bible scholars indicate that they mean that the woman shall struggle to submit to her husbands authority or she will want to dislodge him from his position in the relationship and rather than submitting to him, she would rather rule over him.
Whatever the case, I know we all have the Truth deep inside us, whether men or women. Now, my question to the women is; what comes NATURALLY to you, a desire to rule over your man or to submit to him?
If you “forgot” because of upbringing or social influence, listen to your heart. The truth is still fresh there. I want to hear from honest self respecting women. What is your most NATURAL inclination when it comes to relating with a man? Is your first impulse a desire to rule over him or to let him lead you?
PS: No need to to quote external sources of “truth”. It is in you. Lets hear whats true for you. Thanks in advance to those who respond.
PPS: If there is a third option beyond submitting and dominating, bring it up too!
