18Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
"submit yourselves" -- means to voluntarily -- yield, place herself under the authority of her husband.
Wifely submission can not mean forced; it must come from her free will.
"As it is fit in the Lord" means that the wife's submission to her husband is proper in her relationship with Christ: ("it is fit in the Lord") submission rendered to her husband is submission rendered to Christ. ~ She is to submit "as it is fit in the Lord."
~ This is for the purpose of order in the home. -- This is not for the purpose of producing a browbeating husband. -- God didn't mean for a wife to submit to an unsaved husband who beats her, or orders her to do things contrary to her walk with the Lord.
~ There is nothing here, to do with inferiority, but a matter of authority and responsibility in the home. ---- The wife is a helpmeet (a help suitable to the husband), not a slave. The family is held together by authority and obedience.
~~ Adam was first formed. -- He was designed for headship by God.
ADAM was formed, --- EVE was made.

~ Of all of God's creations, only woman could meet the innermost needs of the man, and only woman was designed to meet those needs.
We've all heard the old saying; it's Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve.
~ As man is the crown of God's creation, so woman is the prized jewel in that crown. --- God made the ladies with an emotional need for attention.
>1st. Peter 3:6 -- giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
~ Husbands, this verse implies that if we don't honor our wife, our prayers may be hindered.
