    Scripture teaches how men are to love their wives.   Why are churches not teaching this to the men?

    Ephesians tells men how to love their wives, why are men not being taught this?   Eph 5:25-33 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but

    the hubbies didn't read the bible, so can't blame the church pastors or priests

      sorry but we CAN blame the pastors (ministers of the doctrines of men) because they will not teach the truth fro scriptures which would force to go to the scriptures, but because it would decrease the number of their followers they will not.

    Frankly, given the rising illegitimacy rate, it isn't doing enough to push and reinforce the institution of marriage with the woman a man loved enough to make children with.

    Very interesting question Chatlie! Churches are preoccupied by their business agenda more than the biblical truth to teach. Actually, simple obedience to the Creator would eliminate ' not loving ' crisis. Once a man is a follower of Yeshua, a disciple / a believer, he would marry a believer , and to them is given  a " new"  commandment, to " Love each other." Or if that doesn't work, there is another one " love your enemies." One way or the other , the " LOVE " is in the air.
    In any case, loving is natural decision of the heart. We simply love, because we are born of God who IS originator of love himself.

      mm- I believe that scripture shows loving is natural to the woman but not to man.  that is why God told the man to love his wife, but told the woman to respect her husband.  it comes from  the curse given after  the fall. see   Eph 5:25 & 33

      It's OK with me - your interpretation. Verse 33 hoe shall a man love himself if his love isn't natural?! Again, before Paul myJesus said love one another; these are  new creation. In Ephesus Paul is handling a paganism' background; no Christ in tthem

      mm-  you do realize self love and love for others are several  totally different kinds of love ?  totally different greek words and meaning.  and love for the brethren is yet  an other alltogether  different word and meaning. as is love of spouse.

    Because "churches" do not know what a "husband" is; neither does the world! 

    We currently live under the New Covenant which is "ALL Spiritual!"  If you think because one has a piece of paper called a "marriage license" as anyone can obtain (same sex), one is "Married," you ERR!

    Did not Scripture say in Ephesians 2:1 {paraphrasing} "We were "DEAD" (Spiritually) in our trespasses and sins?"  Is not "Marriage" a "Spiritual" union (Genesis 2:24)?   Were not Adam & Eve "in the Spirit," free of sin at the time?  This is how a real "Marriage" was intended - "ONLY in the LORD" (I Corinthians 7:39)! 

    If we WERE "DEAD," how could we make a "vow" to GOD?  Consequently, where is "a husband" in that relationship? 

    Ephesians 5:23 "For the husband (one "IN CHRIST; not a "DEAD" man) is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body."  How can a "DEAD" man be compared to Christ who "is the saviour of the body?"  A "DEAD" man doesn't know WORD and cannot give WORD which "sanctifies his wife!"

    "Churches" cannot teach men anything because "they" don't know!

    If Paul told the Corinthians that a second marriage should be "ONLY in the LORD" (I Corinthians 7:39), how much more do you think the first one should be?

    If "one" of the couple is "in the LORD,"  I Corinthians 7:14 says "For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: "else were your children unclean;" but now are they holy."  What real "Marriage" produces "unclean children?"  Only a "marriage" that is NOT "in the LORD!"

    Oh yes, anyone can go to the courthouse and obtain "a marriage license" (same sex too), but it's only a license to sin!  At least "one" of the couple MUST be "in the LORD!"  Then "the husband" (one "in the LORD") will be "led and guided" (John 14:26; 16:13) by the Holy Spirit to do as Ephesians 5:23-33 says!

    Ephesians 5:32 "This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church!"
