‘Obedient Wife Club’ set up to curb divorce among Muslims

A group of Malaysian Muslim women is to launch a new platform called The Obedient Wife Club that aims to curb social ills like divorce, domestic violence and prostitution, The Telegraph reports:

Wives who sign up will be given instruction in how to “obey, serve and entertain” their husbands to promote marital harmony and cut the risk their spouses will stray or misbehave.

The club’s inaugural meeting on Saturday in Kuala Lumpur will get the proceedings rolling with speeches and a show to illustrate how women can keep their husband’s happy and contented.

One of the club’s founders Maznah Taufik — who also set up the Polygamy Club two years ago — said much marital discord was the result of disobedient wives failing to bring joy to their husbands.

“Domestic abuse happens because wives don’t obey their husband’s orders,” said Mrs Maznah. “A man must be responsible for his wife’s wellbeing, but she must listen to her husband.” She also said the group would stress that wives had to provide husbands with a fulfilling sex life to prevent them straying to prostitutes.

“To entertain their husbands is compulsory,” she said. “If she doesn’t do this the husband will look for another woman … and the house will break down.
