A Wife is to Submit to Her Husband in Everything

 

 

"A wife has no power of her own, but is to submit to her husband's dominion in everything.

It is fitting that a woman be subject to her husband's dominion and have no independent authority [cf. Col. 3:18]. She is not to teach him, testify against him, bind him, or judge him [cf. 1 Cor. 14:34-35]."


"Adam was deceived by Eve [cf. Gen. 3:6], not Eve by Adam. It is just that, as the woman was at fault, she be subjected to his governance [Gen. 3:16], lest he fall again through her heedlessness."

 

-St. Ambrose, Church Father & Doctor, from Questions on the Old Testament,

[Question xlv]: C. 17. (and) On the Hexameron, Treatise on the Fourth Day: [C. 18.]
