The Bible has prescribe the roles that husbands and wives must play in a marriage. The roles can be read in Ephesians 5:21-33. The wife is told to voluntary submit to her husband because the husband is the head of the wife just as Christ is the head of the church. The husband takes the lead of the marriage. On the other hand, the husband is told to love and cherish his wife as Christ love the church and gave himself for it. If the husband and the wife play these roles, the marriage will stay together.
