The world has twisted what God gave as a gift, marriage, to the point where the traditional mindset is that the man should dominate and rule over the woman. This was never God’s intention, and it actually puts pressure on a man to do what he was never intended to do. Successful marriages are built on a successful relationship with God and His Word, first. Spouses who know the precepts of new-covenant grace-based marriages know that the husband is the head of the wife in the same loving, nourishing way that God is the head of Christ and Christ is the head of the church; no mention is made of male dominance. Biblical equality between men and women was God’s original plan all along.
