I don’t pretend to be a relationship expert or anything, but as someone whose own marriage is fast approaching a 9th anniversary, I would encourage all of the young couples reading this blog to openly discuss their difffering needs, expectations and values. Before producing a 4 page contract that will end up on The Smoking Gun, that is.
Travis Frey, a 33-year-old Iowa father of two, has been charged with first-degree kidnapping and assaulting his wife three times after allegedly tying her to a bed with a rope.
Ruth Frey told Council Bluffs police her husband was angry with her for taking their two daughters to church.
But the case turned even more bizarre when prosecutors produced a four-page “Contract of Wifely Expectations” they said Frey had wanted his spouse to sign.
The document, a copy of which was obtained by TheSmokingGun.com, stipulated that Ruth Frey was to do “anything and everything” her husband wanted.
The contract required she be naked once the kids went to sleep, walk around the house in heels and shave her underarms, legs and pubic area every third day.
Under the heading of “My Time,” Travis Frey stipulated his wife to “be subservient, submissive and totally obedient” and “to do what you are asked, when you are asked, how you are asked” and “perform any and all sexual acts.”
Further, his wife was never to argue with him, complain about “anything to me or about me,” raise her voice or “sigh, moan, bulk [sic] or otherwise show displeasure or unhappiness.”
The contract also required his wife to pose for pictures 20 times a quarter, with Travis Frey selecting the positions.
Her wild and crazy hubby did offer his wife the chance to earn “good behavior days,” provided she performed “everything with complete and total enthusiasm.”
The GBDs, as he called them, could be used to “get out of” doing things.
There’s no truth to the rumor, by the way, that Frey has been offered a job as an overnight host on Fox Sports Radio.
