Discussing a guest of old-school Christian faith the concept of submission came up on “The Real” and soon to be married Jeannie Mai said that’s her ideal going into her marriage.
During the conversation, co-host Adrienne Houghton said that “the Bible was written in a different time,” so the terms of relationships have changed.
“It speaks on equality. For me, I just feel like the concept of me being submissive to my husband, is he not submissive to me as well? For me, I think that’s what give and take in a relationship is about,” Houghton said.
While Houghton was focused on a modern give in take in the relationship, Mai, who’s engaged to rapper Jeezy, focused on tradition and the old school definition she supports.
“The actual definition of submit is ‘to accept or yield to a superior force or to the authority or will of another person,’” she said. “So I’m going to say right here, that I, Jeannie Mai, going into my marriage, I want to submit to my man.”
