“Women who follows their partners in submission and respect tends to enjoy and have a lasting marriage or relationship”. This might not always be true especially when the woman is with the wrong man who doesn’t understand and appreciate that women are help meet and comes to complement man.
Most men don’t know that having the right woman in your life is a gift from God. And honestly speaking both men and women are equal but the truth is they are not the same, no man is ever superior to any woman but for the sake of order in the relationship God made it so, that the man should be the head. Men have their responsibilities and roles to play in a relationship, the same way women also have a role and responsibilities to perform in a relationship.
But unfortunately, most women because of education are no more willing to embrace their biblical role of submission in marriage and most men out of ignorance are also not embracing their biblical role to love and care for their wives. It’s true that some women don’t really get the love they want from their men, despite their efforts to submit to them and the temptation comes for them to refuse submission, but refusing to submit will not save your relationship it will only destroy it. Whilst there are some women who with all the love and care they receive from their men, still perceive submission and respect as an act of slavery.
Some women at the beginning may be submissive but as times goes on when they are able to achieve their dreams of higher education or better work or salary they begin to contend with their partners and refuse to be under headship of the man. This are not biblical way of marriage, in Christian marriage both the man and the woman are partners, team mate, co workers, while the man loves and cares for the woman, the woman on the other way submit and respect his man.
WISE AND MATURED WOMEN UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE THE CONCEPT OF SUBMISSION AND RESPECT, WHILST INTELLIGENT AND EDUCATED WOMEN SEES IT AS A THREAT.
MAN- ARE YOU LOVING AND CARING FOR YOUR PARTNER?
WOMAN – ARE YOU SUBMITTING AND RESPECTING YOUR PARTNER?
