SUBMISSION IN MARRIAGE
Submission is the act of surrendering or accepting another power or authority. Meaning when you must have decided to marry, you must have made up your mind to Submit. So, you see SUBMISSION is a choice; if you’re not ready to submit to HIS authority, there is no need to marry.
NB: No. submission does not mean leaving your brain. Submission does not mean living or acting in FEAR. Submission is the key ingredient to a Successful Relationship. Before I continue, I’ll like to drop some QUOTES on Submission that might inspire you.
Submission is not about authority
And it’s not obedience; it is all about relationships of love and respect
~William P. Young
“Take advice, but not orders. Only give yourself orders. Abraham Lincoln once said, ‘Since I will be no one’s slave, I will be no one’s master.'”
~ Jim Rohn
“Submission does not mean being weak or passive. It leads to neither fatalism nor capitulation. Just the opposite. True power resides in submission. A power that comes from within. Those who submit to the divine essence of life will live in unperturbed tranquility and peace even when the whole wide world goes through turbulence after turbulence.”
~ Elif Safak
“Submission is the willingness to give up our right to ourselves, to freely surrender our insistence on having our own way all the time.”
~ Myles Munroe

~ Bradley Cooper
The need for submission.
Submission is a natural order right from the creation of the world. So submission is a must in marriage. I want to let you know that submission is not slavery; it’s just an Act of Service. The reason is that no one is against your fundamental human right.
Submission in the highest form is OBEDIENCE to your husband. The husband as we all know, is the head of the house. Therefore, the wife should obey her husband irrespective of the husband’s background, religion, or culture.

When something is turning out badly in a marriage, and you don’t care for it, NEVER, you overwhelm your better half’s choice or challenge it.
