Please Naija mum,I want to use this medium to ask this question. I was arguing with a male colleague at work on friday, which should come first, a wife's submission to her husband or a husband to love his wife? According to him, he said in the bible, wifes' were addressed first to submit to their husbands before telling husbands to love their wifes' as Christ loved the church. In my opinion, I think Love should come first because if husbands were commanded to love their wives as Christ loved the church,he died for our sins and that's the greatest sacrifice of all,so what do you think?
In my own opinion, love and submission shouldn't be assigned to each gender in a relationship or marriage. If a man only desires his woman to be submissive I doubt his satisfaction if love isn't involved likewise the woman, love without a bit of submission from her man won't give her a full satisfaction either. In all, LOVE is the most important and the foundation of a successful union, without love you are heading towards a major downfall and the man is expected to lead by example as the head of the home by showing love to his wife and naturally the only way to reciprocate the love is by loving him in return and submitting totally to her husband.
