3. Mutual Submission
Submission gets a bad rap…even in the Christian community. But, it is a good thing, and God meant for it to be mutual. When both the husband and wife resist being selfish and purpose to serve one another, the marriage will thrive. Healthy marital submission occurs when we submit to God first and then to one another.
In marriage, we either both win or both lose. When we mutually submit to each other, we surrender our defenses and come together as one. When we do this, we both win every time.
There are certainly specific roles that God assigns to the husband and the wife, but I believe our culture has made seem oppressive for wives. This is simply untrue. My husband wrote an excellent blog on this called, “The Truth about Submission in Marriage”. Click HERE to read it.
