@ topic,

No, a woman is not incomplete without a man. If you don't love yourself enough, you will always feel incomplete even with 10 men.

I feel it's a subjective question and as such will have no real true or false answer but let me give an illustation. Before I met the lovely lady I'm dating now, I felt quite complete and back then I'd answer a straight ''A man is complete without a woman & vice-versa''. Then I met her & after 3 years together so far, I feel so incomplete when I dont see her or speak 2 her for a couple of hours. If you ask me that points to the fact that one is not complete without the other & like in the Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang(complementary forces), without one, the other wont exist for example how would we know whats is good if there is no bad(or evil if you like). Like I said it's subjective so everyone has his/her opinions.

i think women shd stop trying to find completeness in men,

Marriage never completed any woman.

a woman of substance remains a woman of substance with or without marriage

The best way to marry is to pray.

I was about to shout until i saw the best response from sistawoman. why this topic seems touchy is that it is always an issue with women. why not ask if a man is incomplete without a woman. Itz the same answer you will get - refer to sistawoman's post and modify. I agree you need two wholesome people to make a marriage work, but that simply means two wholesome single people! being single does not mean you are disfunctional, you can do everything a married couple can do (save have kids, sex or companionship) but not with the same ease and comfort a couple will handle the issues of life - especially since they are a tag team that compliment one another.

So sweetheart, as 'complete' as a woman is without a man or vice versa - itz a darn lonely place to be!

Yes a woman is never complete solely because marriage is ordained by God.

No matter how a woman is financialy independently okay if she does not have a man in her life that part and role to filled and play will be there.

oh, my God what are we saying here, for one to be complete is a state of mind, Just let look at something like SMILE : they said Smile is a perfume u can't pour on others except you first pour it to yourself, u can't make others to smile when u are not putting on the smiling face lol,

Likewise one being complete, if u are not complete on Ur own a man cannot make u to be complete, it will rather add more incompleteness in you,

Am not disputing the fact that men and women should not get married, moreover my topic was not base on people getting married, but its was rather is a woman in complete without a man .

I have also gone back and apologized when my tone of voice was not what it should have been. Sometimes we get caught up in what we are feeling, that we express ourselves a little to passionately. No one is perfect, but to correct what we do wrong speaks volumes of our character.

God bless and have a great day!

Completeness like happiness is not something that one can get from someone else. A spouse or a friend can give you happiness on occasion, just like having kids can be a source of joy for you. But all this cannot make you a happy person. Your life long happiness can only come from you and involves you loving yourself, listening to your inner self and actualizing your intrinsic (or God given) purpose in life.

EVERYONE have love in their hearts and they have to give it to someone or something, could be man, woman, cat, dog, cow, lizard etc. At some low times in our lives, we tend to reach out to this person or thing and really cant do without them. We try to "form" on this space, but we cant do without a partner, notwithstanding who or what the partner may be.

Just when I was about to give up, a glorious ray of hope appears, amidst the cacophony of vacuous contributions littering this thread, some yapping about women subjugation, some sexixm, etc - jeez, what da heck has that got to do with being complete? some using their absymal knowledge of the Bible to back up their equally pathetic views on completeness; someone even claiming that the world would go on without men - kai! just how delusional can one get?

But here you have someone whom I believe epitomizes the revered species of beings called woman, someone who fully understands the purpose of womanhood, someone who knows that her reliance on her husband to perform his God given roles, which as she said, she is quite capable of performing herself, does not in any way undermine her completeness, but does in fact reinforce it. her type are becoming alarmingly rare.

Mr sisterwowm has to be a very lucy man indded.

I hope I am not stepping on toes here or repeating what has been said because I did not read all 7 pages of this thread.

Here is how I feel and understand i am speaking in I statements.

No I am not complete w/o my other half.

I function better as part of a r/s.  Does that mean I cant do it alone?  No, I have done it alone for many years.  I DONT want to do alone and dont feel whole w/o my other half.  Does that mean I settle for less.  NO.  

I need a man to teach the boys how to be men and show my daughter what to expect from a man.  I want a man to take the lead in the house and make the decison and run things.  I want a man to do the heavy lifting so i wont break my back doing it.  I need to feel his strength so that I can lean on it.

I have been there done that.  I have been the head of my house, paid the bills, raised the kids, provided for my family, made the decisons, did the heavy lifting, been my own support tower and everything else that man does; but I dont LIKE to do it.

I function better in a realtionship.  I love to cater to my man.  I love to tend to my family.  I love passing that weight to his shoulders, because his shoulders were designed by God to carry that weight and mine were not.

i think it's a thing of choice and understanding. (all my sayings are with the assumption that we are discussing completeness within the context of marriage not outside marriage)

1. have u identified ur purpose in life?

2. do u truly comprehend ur purpose?

3. what's ur purpose for marriage? just the sex? or do u have other reasons?

4. the choice is solely urs. no one should force u into marriage.

my 2 cents.

THANKS, THANKS AND THANKS, AGAIN for your support  - Nwaka!

It was lovely to read your publication and may God bless you for recognising the double standards that exist in our cultures - thus unfair and unjust both in the eyes of man and God.  Only those who support and part-take in cheating others of their freedoms and dignity will condemn this publication even though they are aware of the existence of these evils perpetrated on women.  Thank God, the world is getting smaller and smaller soon, these archaic cultures and behaviours will become history.  Who would have thought today that a black man would hold the most powerful office (the White House) in the world?   Don't worry these things shall come to pass.

@Ekwere

If you are a Christian, you certainly do not know how to talk to people.  You are extremely offensive in your "overbearing opinion", which calls people silly, and accuses ALL Americans of living a nonsense life--as if there are NO Christians in America.  I am a Christian living in America, and I have many brothers and sisters in Christ as well here.  If the poster would even take into consideration what you were saying, she would have to first push through all the name callings, your negative opinions about other cultures, and your "brutish" manner of speaking.

So I guess anyone who dared voice an opinion other than yous is a completely silly person (is that it?).  I thought there was only one final authority--the creator of heaven and earth--and I did not know he had wrapped himself up again into human flesh and came down in the form of Ekwere.  Learn how to express yourself so others will WANT to READ AND HEAR what you have to say.  No one responds to name calling in a positive way, Ekwere.

And guess what, Ekwere, I have a news bulletin for you.  Africans are not copying what they see Americans and Europeans do, for "SIN" has no boundary on the face of the earth, for "all have sinned and come short of the glory of God".  Are you actually so closed minded that you think the ONLY reason Africans sin is because they see Americans and Eurpopeans do it?  We are all born in sin.  Do you not think there is no practice of homosexuality in your entire country?  And if there is, it is only because someone watched television or read about it, and said to themself, "I think I will try what those Americans and Europeans are doing".  Get for real.  Without Christ in a person's life, ALL people, no matter what their geographical location will practice sin of all types.  The devil walketh about seeking whom HE may devour, and his job is to Kill, Steal, and Destory.  No nation, culutre, or demographics of people is free from the influences of sin without Christ in their lives.  With Christ, however, we are overcomers.

I am wondering why human being would take God for a fool for He never knew the purpose of creating Eve for Adam or Adam for Eve. Contributors against the wish of God for human are just being silly AND FOOLISH. No wonder God regretted ever creating man for we now know more than Him, continue to argue with your reprobate minds that a woman is complete without a man and vice versa and see the resultant effect.

Africans are copying nonsense life and character from the Americans and Europeans,single parenthood,sexmate(no string attach) to that relationship,lesbianism and gay,instead of imbibing his instructions in the Bible. Continue to accuse because of ur career or money.

I rest my case

Is a woman complete with a man? There is a reason why so many women are unhappily married and very few who are happy with their husbands. you complete yourself, another person cant do that for you.

I am a Christian, and therefore, believe the word of God.  According to the bible, God made man; and one day he said it was not good that MAN should be alone; so he made him a help meet (Eve).  However, the age old question has been put forth, "is a woman incomplete without a man"?  God felt the man would be lonely without his female counterpart, and he created a woman for him.  So to me the question is is a man or woman incomplete without one another (not just is a woman incomplete without a man).  In another part of the bible, Paul says it is "better to be like he was--single".

So to answer the question in the format for a man or woman, I say it depends on the needs of that individual person.  If a woman, or man, feels complete with having to have a man or woman in their life, then that works for them.  If on the other hand, a woman or man, feel they want and need a man or woman in their life, then they probably feel incomplete.

Lets not deny the truth, two is always better than one.

If u have been in a relationship b4, u would'nt want to stay without someone in ur life. Life is sweeter and besutiful when u are two-in-one.

@onyxera yes the bible said it that is not good for one to be alone. Did the bible said is not god for a woman to be alone?

Haven't u seen a wife in her husband house yet she still need somebody around? same thing with men,

I mean u are in your husband house yet you are alone, i mean what are we talking about.

Have seen many women now driving Okada, taxi and buses so what are we talking about after all have seen many women today who are catering for thier children without the support of thier husband.

Please i will accept that is choice or individuals mindset, Marraige isn't a do or die something. yeah,

Touchmeder, I still maintain that a woman is TOTALY incomplete without a man in her life.

You quoted me right by wishing to get married and settle down so also does every other woman.

I do not want to go religious in this discussion but summarily you have expressed the wish of every other other single woman in other words you wish to be complete. Mind you, a woman is one RIB.

Nick Bayo,

I buy your idea, some of us wwould prefer a f**k mate than marry the wrong person. To get the f**k mate is the problem. How many women would want to be f**k mates? Dont mind all the hypocrites that come here to look strong, when they see you are using them as f**k mates they would start pushing marriage down on you.

PURPOSE they say WHEN is NOT known ABUSE THEY say is INEVITABLE.

God who said to ADAM he would provide an Helper for him, who will compliment and help him in all his ways, I dont think GOD is crazy to have said that.God knows that A Man needs A Woman likewise a WOMAN needs a MAN.Both are INCOMPLETE without the perfect match,i repeat both are INCOMPLETE. The Bible continue in Eccl 4 Verses 8 down to 12. That verse makes us to understand that A man without a Woman is incomplete and vice versa, pls kindly read b4 u castigate me for God sake. God is a perfect GOD and he will never ever make mistake, Remember thats GODS WAY IS NOT OUR WAY and OUR THINKING IS FAR FAR FAR FAR DIFFERENT FROM GOD THINKS, This is important for us to understand, PRAY TO GOD THAT YOU GET MARRIED TO YOUR BETTER HALF THAT GOD HAS CREATED SOMEWHERE. Those people who will attestate to what i have said are the MARRIED COUPLES who got married to their other Halves,but if unfortunately they got married to someone elses's half, ohhh they'll experience other wise. That is why you have to really pray,fast and seek GODS face when it comes to the issue of MARRIAGE because it is a very crutial issue in human life. FOR 2 the Bible says its better that 1.

Hope i passed a better message and i Hope someone out there agree with me. [size=8pt][/size][font=Lucida Sans Unicode][/font][color=#006600][/color]

Of course a woman is VERY COMPLETE. Every individual created by God is whole and complete.

An incomplete individual can never be completed by another individual. Never make that mistake. The

essence of having one another (man/woman) is for companionship and definitely not for completeness

or wholeness!!![color=#006600][/color]
