Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life…. (1 Pet.3:7)
Since most of our sons will one day marry, we should have them practice, from childhood, honoring women (starting with their sister(s) and mother).
As stated by Doug Wilson:
“The cultural discipline of honoring women is very important. It is no accident that feminists have succeeded in getting women treated ‘equally’ with men, and now that women are no longer singled out for honor, that the men around them just go with their lusts. The results have not been at all favorable for women. After decades of established feminism, the end result is that far more women, in their relationships with men, are treated like dirt” (Future Men, p. 136).
