grateful that he married me stepfordwife.com

We haven’t abandoned this blog / website / organization. The ladies in the organization were in the process of relocating to a different town north of Connecticut.

We have been reading your delightful emails and are still in the process of replying to each and every single one of them. Plese bear with us.

In the meantime, we leave you with our favorite quotes from the good book.

Check back soon and look for our replies to your email.

from John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands
This is an instance, explaining the above general rule; which subjection lies in honour and reverence, ( Ephesians 5:33 ) , and in obedience; they should think well of their husbands, speak becomingly to them, and respectfully of them; the wife should take care of the family, and family affairs, according to the husband’s will; should imitate him in what is good, and bear with that which is not so agreeable; she should not curiously inquire into his business, but leave the management of it to him; she should help and assist in caring and providing for the family; and should abide with him in prosperity and adversity, and do nothing without his will and consent: and this subjection is only to her husband; not to any other man, nor to her children, nor to her servants, or any brought into her house; and this consideration should render the subjection more easy, voluntary, and cheerful: and which is but reasonable that it should be; as may be gathered from the time, matter, and end of the woman’s creation, she was made after him, out of him, and for him; and from her fall, and being first in the transgression; and from her being the weaker and inferior sex; and from the profitableness and comeliness of it; and the credit of religion requires it, that so the word of God be not blasphemed: wherefore it follows,
-Ephesians 5.22

from 1 Peter 3:1 – 3:6 (Amplified Bible)

IN LIKE manner, you married women, be submissive to your own husbands [subordinate yourselves as being secondary to and dependent on them, and adapt yourselves to them], so that even if any do not obey the Word [of God], they may be won over not by discussion but by the [godly] lives of their wives,

When they observe the pure and modest way in which you conduct yourselves, together with your reverence [for your husband; you are to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him–to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy your husband].

STEPFORD WIVES

She Wants President Hillary, He Wants President Trump, She Wants A Divorce.

Kerry Maguire and Tom Stossel, among the many couples whose relationships have frayed during the 2016 election season, at home in Belmont, Mass.

Wife wants to vote for Hillary, husband wants to vote for Trump. She demands he vote for Hillary or she will divorce him and move to Canada. If Canadians are truly smarter than Americans, then they would not grant her entry. No serious and devoted wife would ever demand anything from her husband, let alone decide his personal choice for a president. If anything, we at The Stepford Wives Organization believe a wife should ALWAYS vote for who her husband votes for.

Many of the girls in our organization believe that we shouldn’t vote, but that is irresponsible. By voting for who your husband votes for, you are effectively increasing your husband’s voting power by two.

So ladies, always ask your husband who he wants you to vote for, and abide by it come voting day.

Asking For Permission The Stepford Way

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

asking permission

Here at the Stepford Organization, not only do us girls always ask our men for their advice, we always ask for their permission. We ask for his permission before making purchases, we ask for his permission if we’re going to spend an afternoon out, we ask his permission before we take a little bite of a delightfully guilty dessert (which is seldom, because ladies…remember the waistline!)

But there is two ways of asking for permission. Although we have a deep reverence and admiration for a man’s guidance in every part of our daily decision making, we feel a man doesn’t want to be constantly harassed with every minutiae of our lives, most of which are meaningless anyway. So instead of going to him and posing the same question in the same exact way “what do you think I should do?” We suggest the Stepford Way of asking for permission.

These are basically variations of the question “what should I do?”

  • “Honey, I’d Like To Hear Your Opinion On This”
  • “What would you do in this case?”
  • “What do you think would be the smart thing to do?”
  • “How would you approach this?”
  • “I’m thinking of going out, is there anything you need me to do before I leave?”
  • “I’m thinking of going out, when is a good time you’d like me to be back?”
  • “I’m thinking about making this purchase, do you think it’s financially wise?”
  • “My opinion is whatever your opinion of the matter is.”
  • “I’m happy when you’re happy.”
  • “I value your input.”
  • If you’re at a lost of how to phrase “what should I do?” to your husband – a phrase that should be first and foremost in every Stepford Wives’ mind, just remember our no. 1 rule of thumb” The word you or your should be in every phrase or question when you are communicating to your husband or man asking for his permission.

    “We Don’t Vote Unless We Are Told To” – The Stepford Wives Organization

    Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

    At the Stepford Wives Organization ( http://www.stepfordwives.org || http://www.stepfordwife.com || http://www.stepfordgirls.com ) we do not vote unless we are told by our husbands to do so. And it’s always because he wants an extra vote for his candidate.

    We believe we are not informed or educated enough to make a decision about politics, so we let the man of the house handle the important matters concerning our country. Besides we are so wrapped up in dinner preparations that we seldom have time to look over the credentials of candidates.

    Here are more reasons why we don’t vote. Click on each picture to view in original dimensions.

    Oktoberfest Recipes 2014 at the Stepford Wives Organization

    Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

    Oktoberfest has been in full gear at the Stepford Wives Organization. We recommend a mix of Spatzle, Red Cabbage, and Bockwurst (simply because the leek / scallion taste is delicious). Try googling a local butcher in your area using the keywords “German / Polish sausage.” Or you can call them up. We recommend buying them fresh. From that point on, you can just cook them in boiling water between 5 to 10 minutes (to get the insides cooked), then drain, and pan fry (or grill). Or you can buy them pre-cooked.

    If you make Spatzle, remember to spray or brush the collander/spatzle maker with olive oil to ensure the dough will slide off the holes easier!

    You can also make Semmelknodel in place of Spatzle. (recipe for Semelknodel)

    You want to wash all this down with an ice cold glass of Augustiner Beer, made in Munich where Oktoberfest is celebrated. Of course, it won’t taste as grand and fresh as if you were there (we’ve tried both), but it’s the next best thing.

    Fresh Herb Spaetzle
    (source: Epicurious )

    2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    3 large eggs
    3/4 cup whole milk
    8 teaspoons minced assorted fresh herbs (such as parsley, thyme, rosemary, and chives), divided
    4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, divided
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    8 ounces mushrooms, thinly sliced
    1 medium onion, chopped
    3/4 cup (or more) low-salt chicken broth

    Preparation

    Blend flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in large bowl. Whisk in eggs and milk, forming soft batter. Mix in half of herbs.

    Bring large pot of salted water to boil. Butter large bowl. Working with 1/3 cup batter at a time and using rubber spatula, press batter directly into boiling water through 1/4-inch holes on coarse grater, strainer, or wide ladle. Stir spaetzle to separate and boil 2 minutes. Using fine sieve, scoop spaetzle from pot, drain well, and transfer to buttered bowl. (Can be prepared 3 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter with 1 tablespoon oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms; sauté until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add onion; sauté until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon oil, and spaetzle. Sauté until spaetzle begin to brown, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Add 3/4 cup broth. Simmer until broth is absorbed, adding more broth if dry. Mix in remaining herbs; season with salt and pepper.

    Red Cabbage & Bacon
    source: Chow

    INGREDIENTS

    1 medium head red cabbage
    6 thick slices applewood-smoked bacon or other smoked bacon, cut into lardons (about 1/4-by-1/4-by-3/4-inch pieces)
    1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
    2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
    2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    1/3 cup cider vinegar
    1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Slice cabbage in half lengthwise. Use a sharp knife to cut a V-shaped notch around the white core and discard it. Slice both pieces in half again so you have 4 quarters, then thinly slice each piece crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick strips. Set aside.
    Place bacon in a large Dutch oven or other large, heavy-bottomed pot with a tightfitting lid over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and most of the fat has rendered.
    Add onion and stir to coat in the bacon fat. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook until the onion softens and the edges begin to brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
    Add the reserved cabbage, stir to coat in bacon fat, and cook until the cabbage begins to wilt, about 4 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar and mustard.
    Deglaze the pan with the cider vinegar, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a spatula. Add the chicken broth and season with a few pinches of salt and more freshly ground pepper. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium low and cover the pan tightly. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is soft and soupy and the bacon is tender, about 45 minutes. If the cabbage begins to look dry, add more broth or water.

    “In Front Of Every Successful Woman Should Be A Man”

    Monday, July 21st, 2014

    As avid followers of the evolving ideas of traditional marriage, we at The Stepford Wives Organization are constantly scouring the internet and printed book matter for ideas and new information.

    We have mentioned the polygamous FLDS (Fundamental Latter Day Saints) group, purely out of interest for their anachronistic ideas of traditional marriage and their views of the man as the head-of-the-household. After all, our favorite “bible” of marriage was written by a Mormon.

    Now to be clear, none of us at the organization support polygamy, and we certainly do NOT condone underage marriage or child brides in ANY form. From a purely historical historical however, legal marriageable age in 13th century England was 12 yrs old, without the consent of parents! Up till the 18th century, girls at 13 yrs old married without the consent of their parents. Girls in the American colonies married as young as 9 yrs old. So whether you agree with it or not (we don’t), legal standards are a fluid concept that keeps fluctuating with the times.

    Here is a wonderful idea from the FLDS group:

    If somebody says, ‘You look pretty today,’ you’re to say, ‘Well, it’s because of my husband,’ or ‘It’s because I have such a wonderful father.’ ”

    All glory, she says, must be passed on to the priesthood head, or the male with the highest level of religious authority in a woman’s family.

    We at The Stepford Wives Organization are delighted to give all credit to our men, even in instances where we were responsible for the praise. We see this as an additional dimension in supporting our men and placing them in a positive light. Because at the Stepford Wives Organization, we have a favorite saying: “in front of every successful woman should be a man!.
