"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.]
