“I’ve been married for less than three years now, and that’s when I started cooking for my husband every day. I want to start off by saying that submission is not slavery. The Bible says a wife must submit to her husband, and in return, the husband must love his wife. It’s a partnership where both sides hold up their end of the bargain. For me, that means cooking and ironing every day, just to name a few tasks. It’s as simple as waking up and doing what I’m supposed to be doing – nothing more, nothing less.” Sueh Owino told The Standard.
