    • “ Husbands…dwell with them
    • with understanding,
    • giving honor to the wife,

    • and as being heirs together
    • of the grace of life,
    • that your prayers may not be hindered”
    • (1 Peter 3:7).

    • In 1 Corinthians 7:1-5,
    • Paul calls for consideration
    • from both the husband and the wife:
    • “… Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. ... Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer …”
  • 12.
    • “ Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife,
    • as also Christ is head of the church;
    • and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything”
    • (Ephesians 5:22-24).
