Most women feel repulsion to this message. In every institution, there is a leader. We have a President as our leader in America. There are Governors as leaders over every state.
Suggest a verse
There are Mayors over every city: police chiefs over policemen, teachers over students, employers over employees, parents over children, etc. Why would it be ANY different in marriage?
Two leaders never work. As women that I mentor understand this principle, their marriages become healed. There is no more arguing and fighting since there is only one leader in their home. Yes, please voice your opinions and desires to your husband but then allow him to lead and decide. Most women are repulsed at the idea that they have to listen to anybody or that anyone would tell them what to do, YET many go to work every day and listen to and obey their boss. Their boss is not their husband who they promised to love all the days of their life through good times and bad times, through sickness and health.
Out of all the men in Bible verse woman obeys man world, THEY have chosen to marry this one man, their husband, and live with him until death do they part.
Submission points to the spiritual ificance of marriage
Your goal should be to have a peaceful home. Children thrive in a peaceful home where love and kindness abound. A house divided falls but a home united stands. When a wife truly loves her husband and desires to please him by obeying him, there is peace. What makes your husband happy? What are his favorite foods? How does he like you to keep up your home?
What does he like to do in his free time? What does he like you to wear? I challenge you women to begin being a help meet to your husband. As I have written before, begin smiling at him and treating him with the respect and kindness he deserves as your husband. Stop arguing with him and allow him to lead. This is the way God intended marriages to function and since He created us and marriage, He definitely knows the best way for marriages to thrive.
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church. Lori Alexander has been married for 33 years.
She has four grown children who walk in Truth and two precious grandchildren. All of her children are happily married to godly spouses. She loves teaching women to be sober, to love their husbands and children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, and obedient to their husbands as the Bible instructs her to do.
Always Learning is a personal teaching blog sharing what she has seen work from God's Word in her life and the lives of many others. Who are you to teach anything? What are your credentials?
Not only wives are to obey
Being an older housewife is not a credential. I am 56 years old. I have been married 34 years. I have raised 4 children who all walk with Jesus and have married spouses who love the Lord. I have mentored women for over 10 years.
I have mentored women whose husbands were having affairs, addicted to porn and many marriages who were on the verge of divorce. Not one of these marriages have ended in divorce.

What a wonderful example of a loving response! Heather My Overflowing Cup recently posted. You mean that if you let your husband have his way, there will be peace. A loving guiding hand keep women happy and secure.
Too many women fall into disgrace without a man to keep her in hand and on the right Bible verse woman obeys man. I honestly believe that women should always be under some type of male authority and are subject to that same authority, from father, brother to husband etc. You seem anti-divorce based on your comment on advising women about their relationships with cheating and porn-addicted husbands. That alone tells me you certainly are not qualified to be advising people. The length of a marriage says nothing about its quality. The fact that you encourage women to stay married to men who so horribly disrespect them and also tell them they need to be obedient to them is, in my opinion, way out of line.
You are not a certified counselor or a theologian. You are an expert on YOUR marriage, but not on marriage in general.
She helped people save their marriages. Tell people in third world countries that they need to go to certified counselors for marital help. Specifically the Bible uses the Hebrew word shma. Sometimes translated as hear but other times translated as obey, shma means to hear and respond with appropriate action — as in passages where God is said to shma his people or a wife is commanded to shma their husband. Erica, please, please reach out to a friend or close family member and get help.
How can you do anything for 20, 30, 50 years and not have something of truth and value to teach others? Think about it. An old whore cannot teach a young woman to be a lady. Husband and Wives submit unto Bible verse woman obeys man other only.
A marriage is not a master slave relationship. A husband as a protector and provider is not a master but a partner, each with different roles in a marriage. If you know someone who is being forced to be a whore please call the police.
Jesus showed tender respect for prostitutes. These days there are still lots of women around the world tricked into the trade and into miserable lives.
Women and men have equal worth
People and governments continue to allow evil men to flourish and prosper with their terrible deeds. Ok yes plz voice your opinions? This is fantastic advice! Suzie recently posted. God bless you for teaching the Word of God. God is your authority. The Word of God will not return void but will accomplish what God sent it out to do.
Just put it out there. A sister in Christ. You are SO right, Joyce! His Word is all we need. Becoming a godly wife is a journey. When we fail, we apologize immediately and continue on the journey. No offense, but how can you possibly know what most women think? Are you just speaking of the women of your acquaintance, perhaps?
