Just what we've always wanted. Marriage tips from baby-making machine Michelle Duggar.

She's been married to Jim Bob Duggar for 27 years so we guess she knows a thing or two about having a submissive happy marriage.

The reality star recently took to the stage at a conference, which aired on the season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting, to speak to other Christian women about how she makes her marriage work.

Here are some of the HIGHlights:

- A Husband Needs A Wife Who Accepts Him As A Leader And Believes In His God-Given Responsibilities: Husbands are commanded to govern their wives; God works through a man’s decisions — good or bad; Bad decisions reveal his needs and allow the wife to appeal and demonstrate Godly character; The more a wife trusts her husband, the more careful he will be in giving her direction; Never ask others for counsel without your husband’s approval; reassure your husband that you understand and believe that he is your God-given leader.

- A Husband Needs A Wife Who Will Continue To Develop Inward And Outward Beauty: How can you become more of the wife of your husband’s dreams?; discover and conform to your husband’s real wishes; explain your hairstyle to others on the basis of your submission to your authority; separate your 'rights' from your responsibilities.

(and our personal fave:)

- Ask Your Husband To Define Your Responsibilities: Ask your husband to tell you when you have a resistant spirit; dispel a backbiting tongue by silence.

We're just going to go out on a limb here and assume that Jim Bob doesn't go around asking himself what HE can do to make a happier wife.

Here's the thing - marriage "responsibilities" should be mutual. There isn't a "leader" and a "follower," it's a communal relationship that is based on love and EQUAL respect for one another.

We're glad this works for them, but, wow, way to set women back a hundred years.
