God said that wives should submit to their husband. Wives should treat husband as the head. What's the extent of your submission to your husband?

I am not a submissive wife. We have a partnership and there are times when he takes control and there are times when I have control. We are supportive of each other, and play off of each others strengths. He is my second husband, and we have been down many difficult paths, but our mutual love, respect, and partnership attitude have gotten us through whatever life has thrown at us. Besides, if I were to be submissive to him, he would tell you he'd die of a stoke on the spot!!LOL

I will say i am very submissive,but the thing is my husband would say otherwise , 'cos i insist on talking everything through with him even when i will still heed his instruction. i love my hubby ,but i am still human with my own thoughts and opinion.

I would say we are pretty equal, he brings home the money, but hands it to me and i do the budget and say what we can spend, but when it comes to big purchases he makes the decision with little input from me...otehr then that, we pretty much are even, i dont submit to him in intimacy or anything else reawlly.

And it also says that husbands are to submit to the wife as Christ submitted Himself to the church...people (especially men) tend to forget the rest of that scripture! Although my fiance wears the pants; we are equals. We make decisions together and sometimes he is more dominant but he's never rude or mean and he doesn't take his 'role' for granted or tries to abuse it. He sees us both as equals in the relationship. He views himself as the head in regards to making sure things are done and that he's leading us in God's way.

LOL HELL NO!! I'm NOT submissive AT ALL in any area of my life be it in general or in my marriage....in fact my husband openly admits that I wear the pants in the family and its true...Thats not to say that he's a whimp by any means becuase he's not, he's just aware that I'm a very domiate person and NEED to have the majority in control....

i must admit, i really am a submissive wife. for quite a while i happened to be doing things which i myself initiate that most of these (shameful to disclose) went wrong. my husband was just there all the time supportive as i was dealing with mistakes i put myself into. then he whispered, "we being husband and wife are bound to be one. submit yourself to your husband". from that day on i realized that marriage is a journey that couple must pass together, helping each other and understanding and embracing one another's flaws and weaknesses, capabilities and strengths. cheers to all submissive wives out there! GOD bless!

God also took Eve not from Adam's feet to be walked on, not from Adam's head for her to be above him, but from his rib - meant to be side by side, partners. My husband and I are equals. If anything, he tends to listen to what I have to say and what I think about things before making a decision. That's just his nature - he's quiet and laid-back. That said, I try to be as supportive as possible, and I pay attention to what he wants and what he thinks and take that into account when I do things.
