Relationship advice…from 4000+ years ago

To continue Black History Year, here’s some relationship advice from over 4000 years ago.  The wisdom of Africa is much older than we are lead to believe.  From the Teachings of Ptahhotep:

21. When you prosper and establish your home, love your wife with ardor.  Then fill her belly and clothe her back.  Caress her.  Fulfill her wished for as long as you live.  She is a fertile field for her husband.  Do not be brutal.  Good manners will influence her better than force.  Do not contend with her in the courts.  Keep her from the need to resort to outside powers.  Her eye is her storm when she gazes.  It is by such treatment that she will be compelled to stay in your house.

  4. When I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any method you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    The subsequent time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to learn, however I truly thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may repair for those who werent too busy searching for attention.
