Is man the head of the house?

Every human act doesn't necessarily need a metaphorical religious or spiritual justification in order for it to make sense. Some things just are. You can search the scriptures for all manner of reasons to justify nearly anything you like, but that doesn't make it any more valid.

Hi 

I would like to give my perspective on this. 

We are taught that man is the head of his home. A wife must defer to him and obey. Children must come below both parents and obey them. But man is subject to God. Therefore he cannot abuse his family. That is the structure of the Christian family. Surely this is the same for Sikhs? 

Yeah my Christian friend said the same thing, she said when she gets married her man would be the head of the house and family.

In sikh families it's supposed to be the same way.

But,  I think a man only fulfills his role/duty as the head of the house if he is a Sikh, nitnemi, God fearing, high moral standards, has respect etc  then he can guide his family the right way.

If he is a drunk, abuser, materialistic, little faith and not God fearing then what's the point? 

It's important to make yourself a good man and set an example.

Purpose of marriage is to fulfill your duty towards God with your partner. Marriage is a religious duty. So I don't understand why atheists or people of little faith get married tbh     their missing the whole point.  They can do what ever they want  shouldn't abuse marriage with their godless-ness

But there are a lot of church-going respectable ones amongst us.

Where? 

I've been here for decades. Those people don't really exist. You want to see English people being their true selves just go out on the town on a Friday night. I'm not judging this btw. I'm just saying, that God and spiritual matters are not things most English people are concerned with (remotely). I think they are more concerned with enjoying life as much as they can - while they can.

You've been told repeatedly to stop referring to Guru Granth Sahib as a "book" yet you continue to do so. 

Bro, with respect, she's not one of us, why should she be obligated to follow our norms? I called out someone on here for not putting "ji" with Guru ji's name. But he was purporting to be a Sikh.

It's like the bread they hand out at the end of a Christian service. For us, it's fine (I think) to call it a "wafer".  We could even call it a "communion wafer" to be polite.

And she did say "Holy book" instead of merely book.

Thoughts?

Yes. All 5 things you said.

But men should heed the last 2, as well: Man is subject to God, and he can't abuse his family.

She does it too eagerly and regularly for my liking, as if she relishes reminding us what we revere is just pages and ink to someone of her frame of mind. The tone is pointed and apparent to me, and I don't like it. If she's on this forum, she abides by the way we do things. I don't like the feint whiff of hostility lurking behind the manner in which she frames her questions.

Hmm, OK. That's a subjective view.

But maybe @Christiangirl52, you can try to say "in your Bani" instead of "in your Holy book".

Anyways, what do you think about the substance of what she said (for us):

1. Man is the head of his home.

2. A wife must defer to him and obey.

3. Children must come below both parents and obey them.

4. But man is subject to God.

5. Therefore he cannot abuse his family.
