As I've been progressing through the MAP one of the key points that I've found for men is to not let your wife's mood have an influence on your's. i.e. if she is complaining then stay aloof and happy. Another aspect is OI - if she doesn't want to have sex then I'm still fine, I can go off and do <manly thing> instead. Follow this train of thought through, it appears that one of the goals of the MAP is to become self-sufficient, not reliant on your wife or anything else for what you need and/or want in life.
That however seems to be in contradiction to the whole Christian perspective of being reliant or dependent on God. Personally I'm not sure I even understand 100% what it means to rely on God.
How do these seemingly 180 degree opposite positions work together?
I'd appreciate any feedback @pastorgeek
and others :)
If quizzes are quizical, what are tests?
