1Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
 2While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
 3Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
 4But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
 5For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
6Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
 7Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
 8Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
 9Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
 10For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
 11Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
12For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
 13And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
 14But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
 15But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
 16Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
 17For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
 18For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
 19By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
 20Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
 21The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

 22Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

I have never been married, but almost a couple times.  I have a 23 yr old daughter though, and her Dad and I remained friends pretty much til the day he passed.  The only thing I have trouble with is being considered the weaker sex; since men and women each have different physical strengths.  I don't believe men could handle childbirth and 9 months of pregnancy anymore than I could have the same physical strength as a man(he can handle machinery and heavy lifting that I know I can't handle).  Just a thought...but I also realize that the husband is the head of the household and women are the ones holding the family together...taking care of the children, etc.  no problem with my role in a marriage as long as husbands and wives submit to and respect one another as these verses say to do.

I agree with you completely. I dont feel men are any better than women. I think we are capable of doing the same things men can do. I have a gf who welds, works on cars, & builds trucks & to boot she works in a factory with heavy machinery. 

I just think God meant for us to let our Husbands lead us as they should. Meant more for us to support our husbands & lift them up =) I myself firmly beleive we are equal & should pull equal weight within the household as well. but thats just me lol

I agree that we should pull equal weight as far as household chores as well...especially in the age now when most wives/moms work outside the home as much as the husbands.
