“Ill thrives the hapless family that shows
A cock that’s silent, and a hen that crows:
I know not which live most unnatural lives,
Obeying husbands or commanding wives.”

– Francis Quarles

From Adam Clarke’s commentary. Such truth here. Husbands, you do not have to obey your wife. Just love and understand her. Wives, you do not get to command your husband. Just submit to and respect him.  (Which does not mean obey him above obedience to the Word of God.)

Any thoughts?
