The bible says that the wife is the weaker vessel. NOT lesser vessel. I once heard a speech comparing the woman to a crystal vase. It's weaker than a plastic vase... SO you treated it as precious, you care for it well. You wouldn't abuse or be rough with it...
The same should be of a husband treatment to his wife... She is a weaker vessel NOT lesser. If anything she is more precious than he and should be treated with respect and care.
This would include sex. It's not respectful to force sex nor is it careful... It is harmful and damaging. Your husband needs to take some time to read up on what he is preaching...
I am not Christian, and can't give you the scriptures off the top of my head. However, the ideas your husband has go back centuries. That doesn't make them right! He sounds like a very controlling man.

The scriptures about a wife being for the husband and visa verse are usually talking about infidelity and adultery. It doesn't by any means mean that you are to be at his beckon call... It simply means you should be for each other ONLY...
