    You are right. Studies show that wherever there is gender-equal treatment (NObody "submitting"), there is better marital harmony and fewer divorces.

    But a lot of Complimentarian religionists refuse the logic in that and wind up in divorce when she WON'T SUBMIT.

    •  Agree, nobody submitting is best. (2+ / 0-)

      That is why my husband and I have been married 38 years and counting.  We have always viewed each other as equals and worked together.  My mother did the submitting stuff, endured 20 years of abuse before she got out, and then he almost killed her.  Not me, no way!  I told my husband that when we started dating, he agreed, was raised by a strong single mom who taught him to respect woman and treat them as equals.  He has always supported me in anything I wanted to do. I have always done the same with him.  We are a team.
