This statement from Colossians 3:18 is very controversial and often taken out of context. I must admit, that I struggled with it when I was younger. Marriage is like a road trip only one person can drive the car. You both plan the trip together, but ultimately, only one of you can drive. This doesn't mean that you are a door mat. Verse 19 says, Husbands love your wives and never treat them harshly. A similar pass in Ephesians 5:25 says, For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her. You might think that it is difficult to submit to someone, but to love someone like Christ loved the church (he died for her), that is definitely a harder task.
