In a Christian household, the husband is head of his wife and the wife is in subjection to her husband. God establishes the order of things, A husband is head of his wife as Jesus Christ is head of the congregation, and God is the head of Jesus Christ. A husband should love his wife as he loves himself and as Jesus Christ loves the congregation. A husband is to treat his wife lovingly and a wife should have deep respect for her husband. Even in a household where only the wife is Christian, she should be in subjection to her husband, husbands and wives should communicate and talk things over, but a husband has final say. Now, if a husband should ask of his wife something contrary to God's word, then she would not obey. But a wife should respect her husband, love him, and be a compliment and helper, who knows if you would win him over without a word by your fine Christian conduct.
