28. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loves his wife loves himself. 29. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; butwill nourish and cherish it, even as the Lord the church. 30. For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31. for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one. (body)
Having said the part , God, makes this all possible. Does this change the attitude of what men should have with their wives before they ever get married?
And how does this fit in with abusive, hurtful, controlling husbands. Which God hates and doesn't promote. ( Men don't hate their own bodies)

Hebrews 4:12,13 says "For the word of God is alive and exerts power and is sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and [their] marrow, and [is] able to discern thoughts and intentions of [the] heart. And there is not a creation that is not manifest to his sight, but all things are naked and openly exposed to the eyes of him with whom we have an accounting." A man who allows himself to be shaped by God's standards and lets God's Word exert power in his life- this is a man who would treat his wife with due honor and love. That's how Christ loved the congregation, to the extent of giving his life for it. The congregation benefits from his loving, patient direction. Families benefit from a husband's loving, patient direction as well. Men do well to remember, too, that God sees all things even what happens behind closed doors.
