Anyhoo , I think the bible is barbaric when read in it's entirety. It only makes me mistrust it more when there are over 300 sects /versions of Christianity ..whom take different perspectives on the bible , and claim to include or occlude certain parts. IF the bible was so crisp and clear ...why such disagreement?
Only one thing can be extrapolated by this ..is that the Bible is up to interpretation and therefore , by default only based on opinion or perception ..which makes it ...................need I say more ???
When it comes to relationships ..the bible doesn't talk much about introspect , boundaries and doesn't really apply to modern times as much as it talks about draconian laws and quaint , cozy, unrealistic metaphors . *duck*

What an ignorant post.
I have been married for 20 years this year, and yes to the same woman for 20 years.
We are both Christians united in serving the Lord Jesus, each other and our children.
What you have completely neglected to note, consider, point out is Christs teachings to His church, particularly the men and Husbands
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it
Jesus teaches far more than the simple verse you read. To suggest what you have is not even half the story.
If in your mind you could understand what Jesus mission for humanity was and still is you would realise a husbands role goes beyond service, as did Christs.
And if you place working for money above raising children....There are so many faults in your logic it doesnt justify my time
If you stay with a mainline protestant church, something like the Lutherans, Prysbetarians, or Methodists, you'll be pretty happy and safe from the scammers.

Its true. The most beautiful "marriage" relationship one can experience is the one between Christ and the church. Christ is the bridegroom and the church in the bride, this description is based out of revelation. I often find it funny that people describe "finding" God. He was never lost! We are the lost. God is the bridegroom, which means he is actively pursuing us.
