How Can I Save My Christian Marriage

In the book of Ephesians God has given us His idea of marriage, but people often consider it sexist and oppressive toward women. Nothing could be farther from the truth. This often comes from not understanding the context of the Christian model for marriage. Ephesians 5:22 says, "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as unto the Lord." A different picture emerges when this passage is taken in its full context. Ephesians 5:25 commands husbands, "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church, and gave Himself for it." Husbands are to love their wives sacrificially, giving all of themselves to her, not lording over her and keeping her under his thumb. It can hardly be considered oppression for a wife to submit to a husband who loves with a sacrificial love, willingly giving his all to her. It is the very definition of love! It is two people giving themselves completely to each other- a two-way street. If more people practiced this biblical principle, there would be a lot fewer divorces. Christians are not immune from having marital problems.
