Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
If you're married to a man, and that man is human, it's unlikely you will feel inclined to call your husband "master." Yet that's exactly how it goes with certain sects of people who live biblically.
While devotion to a spouse is always good form, one-way submission is an oddity in modern life. When bible scripture is written this plainly, the literal interpretation is crystal clear: Wives submit to your husbands.
