|Bible Question: when a man and woman are in a serious relationship, expect to someday get married, does the bible say the woman does not have to love the husband, she is to honor him, and the husband is to only love the woman back and he doesnt have to honor her, just love her, is this what the bible states and where?|
Bible Answer: I think one of these two passages are the ones you are thinking of.
Ephesians 5:22-26 (NASB)
22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.
24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,
26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
Colossians 3:18-19 (NASB)
18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.
