MOST COMMENTED STORY
Editor's Note: We're taking a look back at the most noteworthy stories from the last week on msnNOW. Our synopsis of Mrs. Duggar's marriage advice attracted more than 1,600 comments, from those who both fervently agreed and disagreed with her views. The comments below the story are worth reading if you're interested in a passionate discussion about marriage and religion, with lots of insults sprinkled in between.
If you can't seem to glean any tips for a lasting marriage from "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," there's another reality-TV star who has some wifely words of advice. Michelle Duggar, the unceasingly pregnant mom on (for now) "19 Kids and Counting," has been nabbed handing out pamphlets with nuggets of submissive wedded wisdom. Gems include never bringing up hubby's past failures (it will crush his spirit), looking at him "admiringly when he talks to others," and always "[accepting] him as a leader and [believing] in his God-given responsibilities." In other words, as @StephanieRogers indicates, "a blueprint for the ideal Stepford wife, Self-Replicating Fundamentalist Edition™," and based on the furor over Michele Bachmann's comments, the pamphlets won't win the Duggars any new viewers.
What do you think of Michelle's advice?
