The bible instructs wives to obey their husbands is this true for today's society?
No - but it does go some way to explaining why some men are drawn to christianity
Respect is earned by the recipient not given by some other entity, real or imagined.
Had the bible been written by women, it would be a WHOLE different story!
All the more reason to just live with the barstewards and just kick them out when they annoy you.
Don't ever get married, girls, when men have this attitude.
No no and no. respect has to be earned and worked at by both sides. According to the 'biblical' theory, men are worth more than women.
Doesn't work. We are equal, we don't 'obey'. We respect when someone is worth respecting, and don't, when they're not.
Man, I hope not. If we're supposed to I'm living way outside of the law.
No, women and men are each other's helpmates. They compliment each other. And while one might have the power over the other in certain situations, nobody has absolute control.
All things should be looked at in context--what else is said about marriage? And what was the culture? And who was the author writing to and why? The Bible also says for husbands to love their wives--to cherish them--to honor them--to love them as the weaker vessel (and by weaker vessel the words actually mean "precious, like a vase"). What is love? Love is gentle, kind, patient, compassionate, does not keep a record of wrongs, rejoices in good, not evil, is not jealous, does not boast, is not selfish, and never gives up! And if the man does not love his wife this way, that chapter also says his prayers may be hindered. So--in that context--it would be easy to submit to my husband if he is loving me like that because he has my best interests in mind, not his! So when he says, "Honey, you are working too hard, let me make dinner for you and then give you a massage," I can obey that order!
I wish. I just do whatever she wants because she can go longer without.... Cuddling. Lol

If you give respect to someone, do you feel that you deserve respect from them in return?I strongly agree with the statement; Respect is earned and not given. So how does one truly earn respect? If you give respect to someone, do you feel that you deserve respect from them in return?
