Is Shiela Gregoire right that functional marriages are necessarily egalitarian?
I'm afraid that today's offering was actually quite Motivational for me.
Gregoire's position seems to basically DEFINE any good marriage as being non-hierarchical, and any actually hierarchical marriages as (by definition) bad.
I can't think of the example I want, but this may do. I (following Gregoire's method), make the statement, "Good people do not drive Toyotas." When someone points out a counterexample, I tell them one of two things must be true: (1) The person's badness must be hidden, but they are definitely not good; or (2) if they ARE good, then that car they're driving is, functionally speaking, not a Toyota.
LOVE the title. 😁
Thanks so much for allowing us all to read this. I'd love to read all of what you say on this, but I can't take out a paid subscription with every interesting substacker.
