    Generally things that take you out of your comfort zones are either going to be great or a disaster and need to be well thought of before taking action.  In this case, if what you are being asked to do feels morally wrong or against who you are and what you believe then it may be best to find common ground that does not include you compromising yourself.  Let's hope that he married her for who she is and not for how well she could mold herself to fit his demands.

      It is very sad Pearl and a sure sign of weakness in a man (at least in my eyes).

      Moms-Secret, You stated it's a sign of weakness about the man. What does it say about the woman? No one is stuck with anyone! Staying always implies consent.

      I chose to say it this way because this man would be the constant and would go thru women, both weak and strong, to find the one that suits his ways. I, as a woman, would not have to asses the other women because they would never be paired with me.

    No!  Not unless the wife's conscience is very messed up and doing so would endanger her or others--but that's probably not the case.

    Wives and husbands are to submit to one another.  You'll notice the Biblical passage that tells women to submit to their husbands FIRST instructs husbands to love their wives.  Wives can safely submit to a loving husband because he would be taking her thoughts, emotions, experiences into consideration for whatever it is that is being decided.  The woman came from the man but men come from women.  Mutual submission is the picture we are shown for health.

    No. But I do wonder what the deal was at the time of the wedding vows. If both believed and agreed that a wife should submit to her husband, she must have prepared for marriage by rearranging her priorities and self-image accordingly. If what the husband wants, however, violates his vow to love and honor her and be a responsible head of the house, the wife should let him know why in this particular case she will not submit.

    Biblically, a wife does not have to submit to her husband if he is not in order with the word of God. If the head is out of order, then the wife must turn her submission from the husband to God until the husband returns to his place in the lineup
