Nevertheless, neither is the woman without the man, nor the man without the woman, in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:11 (ASV)
I often hear men use the following phrase to express their confusion: "Women, we can't live with them and we can't live without them." Women also use it but in another context, to defend themselves. From the man's side, it translates the idea of an obligation, without any option, to live with them. On women's side, it expresses the idea of being the central necessity of men, whether they want it or not, hence the drift towards feminism.
Whether it is one or the other, both parties are wrong because the Bible tells us in Genesis 2:18: "The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. -NIV" This verse indisputably removes, in man's life, the idea of not being able to live with his wife. It also contradicts the idea of a woman who believes that she is superior to her husband and that she can live without him.
In his original plan, God created woman to be a help to man, whose equal she is in every way. Thus, the woman who wants to live without a husband finds herself without a purpose and without a vision within herself. She may have personal goals, but her very existence misses its true mission, because she helps no man and cannot reflect the image of a man, her husband, whose glory she is, as it is said in 1 Corinthians 11:7.
Ladies, God created you for a specific purpose, ensure its fulfillment with perseverance and do not let anyone challenge the glory that God has given you in creation. Gentlemen, make sure you live up to the responsibility God has given you to love, protect and care for your wives. This is what brings glory to God.
