"If the only reason that they're "good" is because of fear of punishment in the after life (or the hope of a reward there) then they're not moral people in the first place." s2

I understand: is it moral behavior if it's coerced? Is red paint red, if the pigment is artificial? I'd say, yes. * "If the only reason that they're "good" is because of fear of punishment in the after life (or the hope of a reward there) then they're not moral people in the first place." s2

Actually it works quite well as in my marriage. We view our relationship as one where our primary responsibility is prioritized to God, our children our Muslim community and lastly, each other. My wife is consumed by raising our 4 children in an Islamic home and this responsibility is sanctioned by God and encouraged in Islam. I believe more women would be happier if they embraced their true nature and returned to more traditional roles in raising children, serving their husbands and staying true to their faith. My wife has an advanced degree and worked a short time the corporate world but found it to be demeaning and not worth compromising her faith.
Hello Hameed, and please forgive as I missed your important quote.
First while I respect anyone's views (providing they do not contravene decency or freedom) I have to say that we in the West have allowed women to become equal in standards we set. I hasten to add I do agree that we in the West have allowed Sex, not Love to dominate. Having said that and again with great respect, if those that follow a Religion that as we see gives power to Men over women, that is not IMHO welcomed. Some Religions have yet to accept equality or shared views. Those Religions to me are locked into a sort Tribal content where freedoms are not uniform or shared. In the UK we have (allowed) Sharia Courts to be set up where Domestic disputes can be viewed and ruled upon. Again we see a form of segregation as to Men and Women. Many years ago we had a Lady who rejected that men were superior to women, her name was Mrs Pankhurst. She and others fought for the freedom of Women and she won. My only comment on what is happening now is simple "When in Roma do as the Romans do". So any coming to my Country should observe and take note of our Freedom. for all.

Probably not a good idea to impose one master pattern on all marriages.
It is an alarming irony that some of those that seek pleasure the most get it the least. It's near paradoxical.

For centuries, we thought that bleeding was a reasonable cure for fever, stroke, heart attack, and a number of other disorders. Should we continue to honour the belief simply because it is a "centuries old tradition"?
