Christian Domestic Discipline
I love the internet mainly for stuff like this. I would have never known that Christian Domestic Discipline was even an option with the fun of the net. "What is CDD you ask?" Don’t worry I did too, and here is the truly beautiful answer.
"It is a marriage set up according to the guidelines set forth in the Holy Bible, meaning the husband has authority over his wife within the bounds of God’s Word, and he enforces that authority, if need be, through discipline, including but not limited to spanking. He uses his authority to keep peace and order in his home, protect his marriage, and help his wife mature in her Christian walk. In a true Christian Domestic Discipline marriage, discipline is tempered with the knowledge that the husband must answer to God for his actions and decisions in his position of authority. "

I am not going to say anything about people who want to practice this. I just can’t imagine what Meredith would do if I thought she had been bad so I spanked her. (Now I am trying to think of something that she does wrong that I would consider a spankable offense.) "Honey, I told you to turn that TV off. Don’t make me get my belt!" I don’t know how long we would be married.
