She said the comment is made in a section of the book where she talks abut having cohabitating roles with your spouse. She said she took the role of service in her marriage. She wants to serve her family because she knows it is for the greater good.


As for the comment about being submissive, Reece said she also believes you have to have a partner who isn’t incompetent for it to work. All relationships need some give and take. She was not asking for women to be submissive to all men. She believes they can be submissive when they have a partner who helps out around the house, saying it has to be reciprocal for it to work.
