From the course Marriage Without Regret (MWR) I learnt to view the criteria of life partner in the right/God way instead of the world’s way where the 5Cs are important. It is humbling to have to choose the God way as the pressure of peers and surrounding world’s expectation is real and around us all the time.
Besides that, MWR also help me to understand the roles of a man and a woman in a marriage. This is especially true for the word “submission” which is wrongly interpreted as a doormat or yes-man/ yes-woman. I also found that the role of a man is tougher than that of a woman, even though it appears as a more glorious role, again as per the interpretation of the world.
