“Obedient wife means they are trying to entertain their husbands, not only taking care of their food and clothes,” Maznah said. “They have to obey their husbands. That’s the way Islam also asks.”
Malaysia is a Muslim-majority country, with some 60 percent of the population practicing the religion, alongside large ethnic Chinese and Indian communities who are mostly Buddhist, Hindu and Christian.
According to local media, the country’s divorce rate doubled from 2002 to 2009, with rates higher among Muslims than non-Muslims.
Maznah said it was also the men’s responsibility to teach their wives to be obedient.
“Some wives, they just want to get married for leisure but they don’t know the responsibility,” she said.
“To entertain their husbands is compulsory. If she doesn’t do this, the husband will look for another woman… and the house will break down.”
Saturday’s launch near the capital Kuala Lumpur will include speeches and a show to demonstrate to women how to be good wives, Maznah said, adding that a similar club was set up in Jordan last month.
Quote from Yahoo News on the launching of The Obidient Wife Club in early June. I try not to be harsh but honestly i think this is stupid. It is an insult to women and all religion and belief.
Do you think being Obedient help you keep your happiness..but it sound like a slave to me… you might keep your husband forever.. but will you be happy? How about your feeling.. aren’t you human too? don’t you feel women.. wives.. need to be listened..respected.. appreciated? Do you think entertainment is enough for men? they also want to be heard and respect. I believe.. ‘communication is the key’. For sure all the needs are important.. and its a bonus if your wife is a good chef, great housekeeping, caring nurse and sexy… wow..congratulation!.. what a package. But I bet even if your wife use the best progesterone cream … but you don’t have good communication.. a man will still search somewhere for another obedient housewife.
