Mkhululi Zulu Ephesians 5:21-33 Marriage is a process whereby two people of the opposite sex go into an agreement of being together for eternity. However, due to misunderstandings and different views in life as people get to know each other more, the issue of divorce has risen to alarming rates. In some countries, the divorce rate occurs in 50 percent of the marriages thereby destroying families. Ephesians 5:21-33 is an example of how a happy relationship can be achieved. The verses from 21 to 33 of Ephesians chapter 5 encourage both husband and wife to submit to each other as they would give themselves to God. This is a very important verse that so many people overlook because a lot of people do not involve God to guide them throughout their marriage. Without God nothing is possible on this earth, because it is by him that all things exist in life. In verse 23, the husband is regarded as the head of the family. He should be the one to protect them at all times and to have the best interests of his wife and family before anything. It is also the duty of the wife to treat the husband with respect so that this encourages him to continue being supportive and to protect her at all times. In Ephesians 5 verse 22 tells wives that they are to submit to their husbands as they do to the Lord. The process of submitting to someone in this case does not mean being a slave, it means accepting to go under the leadership and choosing to be a subordinate in a circumstance or relationship.
