God has wisely arranged everything. He gave the man some gifts and the woman others, so that the woman would obey him. For if God had given the same courage to the woman, the family could not have survived. . .

In Epirus, stories were told of a woman who was a menace to the whole neighborhood! She dressed in a long white shirt and always had a scimitar at her belt.
The bandits would take her with them on the job! Imagine - a woman in a bandit gang! One day she came to a remote village, a few hours' walk from her village, to take a young Wallachian boy and marry him to her daughter. As the boy became impatient, she twisted him up, carried him on her shoulders, and dragged him to her village!
However, such cases are the exception to the rule. Try drafting women into the army and make up a women's company. And then take a dozen teenagers in Girl Scout uniforms and ask them to show off to the female warriors from afar. The whole company's going to be in a tizzy! They'll think the enemy's on the offensive!
The husband, the scripture says, "is the head of his wife;" that is, God has determined that the husband should be the head of his wife. That is, God has determined that the husband should rule over the wife. The wife's dominion over her husband is an insult to God. God first created Adam, who said of the wife: "Now this day is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. The wife, the gospel says, must fear her husband-that is, she must honor him. And the husband is to love his wife. In love there is respect. In respect there is love. What I love, I honor at the same time. What I honor, I love. That is, love and reverence are not different things: they are one and the same.
However, people deviate from this harmony of God and do not understand the meaning of the Gospel words. Thus the husband, misinterpreting the gospel, says to his wife: "You should be afraid of me!" Crazy man, if she were afraid of you, she wouldn't marry you either! And some women say, "Why should a wife be afraid of her husband? No, I can't accept that. What kind of religion is that? Discrimination!" But look at what the Scriptures say: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. The fear of God is reverence for God, reverence, spiritual humility. This fear leads you to awe, it is something sacred.
That equality with men to which some women aspire can only be justified up to a point. Women today work and vote on an equal footing with men. So they are infected with some unhealthy spirit and think they are equal to men [in everything].
Of course, the souls of men and women are the same. But if the husband does not love his wife and the wife does not honor her husband, there is discord in the family. In the old days it was considered bad business if a wife crossed her husband. Now there is a cheeky, swaggering spirit. How wonderful it was in those days! I was acquainted with a married couple. The husband was a short, unassuming man, and the wife was a tall, bogatyr tall woman!
She could easily unload a pound of grain from a cart! Once a worker - also a strong fellow - tried to molest her and she grabbed him and tossed him aside several meters away like a match! But if you had seen the obedience this woman showed to her husband, how she honored him! That is how a family is strong and unbreakable. Otherwise, it would not hold together.
