Bachmann Explains What Being "Submissive" To Her Husband Means

Michele Bachmann is asked to clarify what she meant when she said, "the Lord said, 'Be submissive. Wives, you are to be submissive to your husbands'" in 2006.

"Marcus and I will be married for 33 years this Sept. 10," she responded. "I'm in love with him. I'm so proud of him, and both he and I -- what submission means to us, if that's what your question is, it means respect. I respect my husband. He's a wonderful godly man and a great father. And he respects me as his wife. That's how we operate our marriage. We respect each other, we love each other, and I've been so grateful that we've been able to build a home together. We have five wonderful children, and 23 foster children. We built a business together and a life together, and I'm very proud of him."
