“Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”
King James Version (KJV)

If these principles were followed we would have much happier families. Since the father is the head of household it all starts with him. A wife can 't have deep respect for a man who beats her, or verbally abuses her. This scripture also shows that the relationship between and husband and wife is one of love. Not a dictatorship , of one trying to be the boss of another.

Verse 21-33 Paul at the end remarks that this is a great mystery. I cannot find a better word to describe it. The bible compares the husband to the savior, even as He (Jesus) is the savior of the church, that He might sanctify and cleanse it to present to Him a glorious church, likewise to the husbands. You were never a perfect match when you married, many are the areas you will conflict with your spouse. It is your responsibility as the husband to iron out wrinkles and blemish from your spouse. The only thing is that you can't do this on your own, it calls for absolute surrender even as Christ surrendered for the sake of the church. That means you give up yourself for her no matter how you feel it doesn't count. There is so much more to discuss on this, looking forward to release a book on the same. God bless you all.
