    I suppose if a man follows the biblical teachings to the letter he most likely is looking for a woman wants her man to {be in charge}.
    There are multiple instances where women are told to be submissive to their husbands.
    Ephesians 5:22-24 (KJV)
    "22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
    23 For {the husband is the head of the wife}, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
    24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands (in every thing)."
    An independent woman may find it a challenge to be "submissive". Naturally this could lead to conflict with a man who wants a wife who lives according to the scriptures that he (cherry picks). No one follows (all of the scriptures) to a tee.
    Believe it or not there are lots of women who are looking for a man to build a life with according to these biblical rules. They have no problem giving their man the "final say" as long he cherishes her.
    According biblical hierarchy things are in this order: God, Man, Woman, and Children. It's been said that King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines! It's doubtful you'd find anything close to that when it comes to a woman having multiple husbands in any religion.
    Religion is not known for having "gender equality" attributes.
    In fact even now women can't become priests in the Catholic Church (because they are women).

      human nature:1 guys like wearing the pants in relationship 2 even strong women want a good man to protect her, so she don't need to be strong, but early Christians are weak/looser/bad people, so girls leave them, won't submit to them, don't want them

    According to the teaching of the bible feminism is a sin and feminist are anti christs.

    John 4:1-3 [Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.] So the anti christ is anything that is not subject to Christ anything that contradict Christ or anything not from Christ. Thus, if I say the earth is over 5000 years old, that make me an antichrist. Your Primary, high school and university and the teachers, are also antichrists.

    Feminism also fall under the category of Antichrist, because the bible teach.

    Timothy 2:11-15 [Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.] So, if Hilary Clinton become the President of the US, that is a sin.

    Ephesians 5:23-24[ For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.]

    Corinthians 7:39 [A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.

    So, in the bible, a wife is suppose to be submissive to her husband even if he slap her and her children around and she can't leave him. Thus, protecting women from domestic violence and helping them to leave an abusive partner, is a sin. Statistic have found, the western world have the highest rate of abuse towards women in the world and Christian women more frequently become victim of domestic abuse, then non Christians. Growing up in Asia, I know most western girls that grew up in Asia, black list western Christian men, in dating, I didn't use to understand why, till I moved to the west and understand western Christian values.

    These types of men have self esteem issues, and any woman looking to submit in any part of her relationship outside of the bedroom has self esteem issues as well.
    Women and men are obviously different in many ways. There is nothing wrong with that. However there is something wrong with the concept of a man being superior to a woman when it comes to relationships.
    Those that hide behind the bible as justification can't handle a woman being equal to them. They can't handle having to actually act like a decent human.
    What makes it worse are those that pretend that because the bible also says they must love the woman it somehow makes acting superior justifiable. Love and submit are 2 opposites. You can not fit the 2 together. There is no such thing as someone who expects a woman to submit to him and also loves her. Love is wanting the same for your partner as you would want for yourself. Love is 2 people caring for each other EQUALLY.
    While I support taking care of a spouse, looking out for their best interest, even catering to their needs, it must go both ways or it is not a positive relationship.

      It does, but those ignorant enough to blindly agree with it's stance on women are obviously lacking in either the self esteem department or mental health department.

      I remember reading first Christians are loosers, so not the type a wife be willing to submit to and they are not exactly the type of guys girls are attracted on 1st sight (tough) or 2nd sight (smart and nice) it can explain these bible teachings

    The bibles are all based on Men, and women were chattel. This is also true of the US Constitution, and the founders.
    "All Men Are Created Equal" Declaration of Independence is not accurate even for MEN, but it really didn't mean mankind either. It meant Males, and didn't include women in voting. Black men got to vote before women, and women didn't get to vote until 55 years later, and only then because of the 19th amendment. The 14th Amendment was silent on both Blacks and Women voting.

    So, it is not just the religions that keep women subservient to men, it is something that the powerful men throughout history have been able to do to keep women down.

    The bibles were written by Men, the US Constitution was written by Men, and the Catholic Church still doesn't allow women to be equal in running the church.

    There are the few Queens, and royalty but they are the exceptions, and many got their power from their man.
    "Men" is not the real equivalence to "Mankind or Humans"!
