I believe that husbands are protectors and providers and that wives are nurturers and caregivers. I believe that husbands should lead the family and that wives should support their husbands. I want a woman who also believes this. My girlfriend's parents divorced when she was barely a teenager, and I suspect this distorted her perception of men and marriage because: her father is rough and opinionated, her brother is disrespectful and inconsiderate, her ex-fiancé was a sexist chauvinist, and the only authority figures she saw growing up were (highly) strong-willed women. These are a few examples of men who have traumatized her and women who have brainwashed her, and I feel that I must walk on eggshells to not be put in this list. I recently asked her what she believes about gender roles in marriage. Read carefully: she told me that "husbands should support their wives and lead their daughters," and that "wives need the support of their husbands to change the world." She said that "women do not need men to succeed." We are both past our mid-twenties. Although she does not oppose it, I have sensed that it is brutally hard for her to acknowledge her submission (and trust) to her future husband; she places lots of reasonable conditions, but thoroughly makes sure that I understand them, time and time again, as if I do not already know. She says things like: "I will submit to you only if you love me like Christ loves the church," "I can only be led by a man who is first led by God," etc. I want to marry her because, other than this disagreement, I think our values are a perfect match. Will this be a problem later on? I do not want history repeating itself by us getting divorced.
