How do kids fit into domestic discipline relationships?

I understand that in domestic discipline relationships the husband has authority over the wife and spanks her when she misbehaves. My question is where do kids fit in is the wife above the children? Also I'm guessing that in these relationships the kids are spanked, is there an age where they are too old or are they subject to spankings until they leave home.How do kids fit into domestic discipline relationships?
i hope they don't bring in the kids on these wackos marriagesHow do kids fit into domestic discipline relationships?
OMG i do hope this is a joke question???!

NO husband has the authority over his wife to 'spank' her when she misbehaves...full stop!

Any husband who hit me woukd get smacked round the head with a frying pan and divorced immediatley, i would hope you would have the same self respect for yourself to do the same thing!

As for kids being spanked...a little smack when their naughty should suffice, that along with getting sent to their room and threats to take away treats/ground them should suffice enough...

just remember kids who are beat grow up thinking thats normal, so once their old enough there going to kick the %$^* out of others cos 'daddy' taught them thats 'normal'...

no wonder theres so much violence and anger in the world!
a husband isn't suppose to spank his wife she is an adult not a child that is putting his hand's on her abuse i think grounding should be for children maybe a smack on thier bottom if they refuse to mind or put in a corner if thier small
A domestic discipline relationship ?

The husband has authority over his wife ?

Help - where are you getting this from ?
Oh dear.
oh boy I hope you ain't serious about this, I really do
The Bible tells women to submit to their husband BUT it does not give the husband permission to spank his wife when ';he thinks'; she has misbehaved. Instead, it tells the husband to love their wives as they love their own selves. Do husbands beat themselves when they misbehave? If they don't, then why do they feel they have the right to physically beat (spank) their wives? Unfortunately, these scriptures are often misused by people who have their own agenda. This is wrong.

These are the verses that tell the wife to submit to her husband.

';Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. (Ephesians 5:22-24)

This is the instruction to the husbands:

';Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;'; (Epheasians 5:25)


';So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:'; (Ephesians 5:28-29)


';Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.'; (Ephesians 5:33)

So where does ';domestic discipline'; come in? It doesn't. And how can spanking your wife be as loving yourself and how is this nourishing and cherishing? It isn't. I have gone over the Bible quite carefully and there is no place I can find that tells the modern day Christian that he is to spank his wife.

And your question about where the wife fits in alarms me. Why don't you know automatically that the wife is above the children? Does not Ephesians 5, verse 31, say ';For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.'; That says you and your husband are ONE FLESH. If you are one flesh with your husband then you are automatically above the children because you are one with your husband and you should know that.

And if you choose to continue to spank your children until they leave home, you may end up losing custody of all of them. The courts don't usually permit physical spanking of children once they reach the age of puberty. Children don't have many rights but they do have some. If the wife wishes to be assaulted that is one thing (not legal by the way either) but she is an adult. The courts will interfere if the discipline of the children is excessive.

I strongly suggest you sit down with the Bible and a good concordance. Don't rely on anyone else to interpret the Bible for you. You look up all those verses above and see for yourself and then you find all the verses relating to husbands and wives. (Try to remember to read proverbs with care. At the time that book was written, children could be put to death for disobeying their parents. We don't do that anymore (just as we don't have slavery either).)

God bless!
