Now I hope that our dear sister is suffering a little bit of hyperbole, but I suspect that instead of moderating the comment, I ought to add "church" at times to law, education system, and court system therein. So what hope does a man have who wants to live Biblically, or for that matter, what incentive can a Godly woman provide for her husband to lead as he ought?
Let us encounter the Wife of Bath's Tale from the Canterbury Tales. I am going to suggest here that a traditional understanding of her--as a loose woman--is less true than that she, more than most of those around her, understands the Biblical significance of marriage and the one flesh union. And what is her possibly Biblically feminine response to her husband's (or husbands') Biblical masculinity?
