Yes, many women and wives complain about men or their husbands. But have they ever looked at themselves even while putting on those make-up and ask how good they are? Take these acts that they do and even justify the injustice they do to their family and husbands:
- Go out on the premise of going to church that takes 4 hours or more with a special son. Then motions to the son to keep quiet because they go play Bingo or something else after the mass.
- Says she's getting old and near 'death' and wants to be with other relatives rather than her own immediate family.
- Will watch TV or Soap Opera and does not care about dinner whether it's cooked or burned, or just about anything else. It's TV or nothing!
- Does not have time to serve dinner then leaves dishes unwashed overnight or until the next meal.
- Would be with colleagues, friends or batch mates and does not bother if her family has food to eat.
- Would lie to her teeth even if it is obvious that she has lied and keeps on changing her version of lies.
- Could not do her own work evaluation and asks hubby to do it for her.
- Has an IR at work and asks hubby to respond to it for her.
- Fixes the bed, have the sheets and blankets for laundry but neglects to put replacement blanket.
- Has all the time and funds to put in calls or text messages to others except for the husband.
- After being with female friends, separated wives from husbands goes totally cold and dry in bed. Husband loses interest in sex because it's like doing it with a corpse!
- Could not explain where money earned by hubby was spent and why. She rather spends for whims than what is necessary.
- Keeps on doing what is inappropriate or ill-advised even after several reminders or notices.
- Does not take leave of absence from work in critical situations of her immediate family but can easily take that leave of absence from work to enjoy time with other relatives!

Around the globe every year , people of different Christian denominations honor the Holy Week for Jesus Christ's suffering, death and resurrection. The Holy Week holidays differ from dates and months every year, so does the date and month for Ash Wednesday. It is always 46 days before Easter Sunday and kicks off the 40 day Lenten season. My curiosity of the different dates and months has been there for years but it is only now that I have researched on it online.
It has been a question in my mind because: why is it that the birth of Jesus Christ was fixed on December 25 while His suffering, death and resurrection were not? On my research it says that: "Easter can never occur before March 22 or later than April 25; Easter falls on the first Sunday following the first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after the day of the vernal equinox; this particular ecclesiastical full moon is the 14th day of a tabular lunation (new moon); and the vernal equinox is fixed as March 21". With this, that the ecclesiastical system does not follow the astronomical system when it comes to full moon. They (churches) have not considered the complexity of the lunar motion.
The research was getting too technical with references to vernal equinox, Gregorian or pre-Gregorian tables, Julian Calendar, and so on and so forth. What I really wanted to find out is: how is it related to the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ? I do not recall anything taught in our Catholic religion classes about the full moon during that time with Jesus (or maybe I was absent when it was taken up in class).
I am not a very religious and biblical person, so I would not really have a good knowledge about it. It seems that the information available online was just for calendars and full moons about the Holy Week holidays' different dates. Nothing at all on how it is related to the death of Jesus Christ.
