There are things in our lives that God has gifted us with. Meaning we are really good at it, but then you have those other things that you lack in knowledge about.
In some relationships the wife may have the will power to keep the house clean, she may cook seven days a week, she takes care of your kid's homework, bath them, feed them, manage the bills, and she may even wash the cars. On the other hand, a husband's strong position in the marriage may be to working a job to bring home income to provide for his family, and keep the repairs up on the house. Or it could be vice versa, the wife may be the provider and the husband is the caregiver of the home. However, the main point is the relationship is made to be 50/50.
Before I got married one scripture that seemed to always follow me around was Ephesians 5:22
Wives submit to your husband, as to The Lord.
|In Esphesians 5:22 it says|
wives submit to your
husband, as to The Lord.
Now, don't believe for one minute your husband has it easy just, because YOU are submitting. The thing God wants you to do is to trust and believe in Him, and He will lead your husband in the direction to where your husband has to love you with the same love Christ showed the church, your husband has to also love you the same way he loves himself, and your husband must lay down his life in sacrificial love and protection for you. If all of these things are happening or they may be transforming to happen, than you as the wife should want to look toward your husband for that leadership role he has in your marriage. Therefore, by being submissive.
|A wife should be known |
for the beautythat
comes within, the
unfading beauty of a
gentle and quiet
In 1 Peter 3:1-5, 7 we are reminded
In the same way, you wives must accept the authority of your husbands, even those who refuse to accept the good news (this means the ones who may not be in church). Your Godly lives will speak to them better than any words. They will be won over by watching your pure Godly behavior.
Don't be concerned about the outward beauty...You should be known for the beauty that comes within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit...which is so precious to God. In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat her with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you (being weak doesn't mean your husband can run over you), but she is your equal partner in God's gift of new life. If you do not treat her like you should, your prayers will be unheard.
Some readers will quit right here. After all, husbands taking the authoritative lead in marriage and wives submitting are not popular messages in today's world!
I read this and fell in love: Submission. To a woman it sounds like a deadly word. A belittling word. A word that can make you feel like you live in a cage. A word that makes you angry. A word that can make you feel like a second class citizen. Yet that is not what the word means, nor how God intended it to mean in the bible. read more...
But this illustration of marriage typifying the relationship between Christ and the church adds further encouragement for wives to submit to their husbands, even those who don't follow Christ. Although, this is a difficult challenge, the verse promises that her Godly character and inward beauty will win over her husband more effectively than words.
If we're not careful, we will miss that these verses highlight the equal partnership of husbands and wives in God's gift of new life. Though the husband exercises the role of authority and leadership, and the wife fulfills a role of submission, both are equal heirs in God's kingdom. The roles are different, but equally important.

|Your husband should love you, like Christ loves the church.|
So, in conclusion, I hope you still feel like In Your Marriage Everything is 50/50.
