This is what the Bible says concerning the role of the husband, Ephesians 5:23,25,28,31. "A husband is the head of his wife, as Christ is the head and Savior of the church, which is His own body. A husband should love his wife as much as Christ loved the church and gave His life for it. In the same way, a husband should love his wife as much as he loves himself. A love who loves his wife shows he loves himself. As the Scriptures say, "A man leaves his father and mother to get married and he becomes like one person with his wife."
As we continue to look at some keys in working toward a successful marriage that will avoid a marriage ending in divorce, remember, it is important that God must be given first place in our marriage because He is the one who came up with the institution of marriage.
