Top 10 list of marriage mistakes:
Refusing sex when requested is a sin: "The husband must fulfill his duty [greek debt to be paid] to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does." 1 Corinthians 7:3-4
Creating a dependency link between the two roles of husbands loving their wives and of wives submitting to their husbands.
Husbands failing to unconditionally love and honour their wives, even when they rebelliously refuse to submit.
Wives failing to unconditionally submit to their husbands, even when they are treated badly.
Limiting the extent of submission to "just the big stuff" instead of 100% of the smallest judgement areas. The wife may be the manager of the house, but the husband is the manager of the wife.
Going to bed without resolving a problem. Harboring a grudge or anger from the previous day.
Thinking that professional, certified marriage councilors or Ph D level psychiatrists will help at all.
Thinking that a spouse may separate or divorce without sin.
Wives who address their husbands above a "quiet, respectful, submissive, whisper", at any time.
Refusing to physically discipline children with spankings from time to time, as needed.
