So far the Christian solution to seriously misbehaving spouses is simply to ignore the matter entirely or just pretend it’s not happening. Tell that to my kids that are learning that marriage means no sex, no intimacy and no love. Good thing they learn what modern marriage is about early then.
He hits upon a common problem in marriage since the advent of feminism: The removal of the use of authority by husbands in their marriages. As illustrated in that previous post, feminists of all stripes have sought to remove the Godly requirement for a wife to submit to her own husband.

HALIFAX – The lead researcher of a new study is calling for improvements to some of Canada’s waste water treatment facilities after finding that introducing the birth control pill in waterways created a chain reaction in a lake ecosystem that nearly wiped out a freshwater fish.
The study, which is being published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B on Monday, found that introducing small amounts of estrogen into a lake led to the near extinction of the fathead minnow because it interfered with the fish’s ability to reproduce.
Lead researcher Karen Kidd of the University of New Brunswick said the study has been ongoing since the late 1990s, when researchers in the United Kingdom discovered that male fish began to develop eggs when estrogen was introduced in their habitat.

Though the song we sing
O tales of ancient told
I will tell you of a man
Who walked on this earth
He walked the trails of blood
He strode on the perilous paths
He faced the adversary in the wilderness
The very God beset by weakness
He hungered and thirsted
His food the word of God
He confronted the adversaries
His foes many legions strong
He drunk the cup we cannot drink
And bled like a lamb about to die
And so he died abandoned by his God
Into the belly of death he descended
Into the gloom of death
He preached to the spirits of the prison
Shut in since the day of Noah
Out of the bowels of death he came
Hades cannot contain him
His life forevermore
Now the adversary is defeated
An innocent man he condemned
by the cross he was defeated.
And so the final enemy is swallowed up in victory.
