There are seven states in the U.S. that still have laws on their books that say that a wife is her husband’s “property,” and that he can sue for “stolen” love if another man takes his wife. The law also says that the husband is the wife’s property. That may upset today’s independent man or women, but its roots are probably from the Scriptures. Read 1 Corinthians chapter seven. The husband belongs to the wife and the wife to the husband. I like that, because I know that marriage is a type of Christ and the Church--we are the Bride of Christ, and we are no longer our own, we have be bought with a price.
