Mollie Hemingway on being a submissive wife

In the debate among Republican presidential candidates, Michele Bachmann was asked about the place of Christian faith in her marriage, particularly the teaching on the wife being submissive to her husband. Parishioner Mollie Hemingway writes at Ricochet on how this teaching plays out in her own marriage. Here's a very brief sample of "My Name's Mollie and I'm a Submissive Wife":

St. Paul tells spouses to submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives are told to submit to their husbands as to the Lord. Husbands are told to lay down their lives for their wives, sacrificing everything for them out of love.

We serve God by serving our spouses and denying ourselves for their good.
