Males as head of household

One of the things that my secular friends have difficulty understanding is the Biblical model of marriage. They think it’s bizarre that my husband and I order our marriage with him as the head of our household.

I wrote about this after reading a disdainful treatment of such marriages in The New York Times. You can read what I wrote here.

In the comments, someone asked “What does it mean for a wife to submit to her husband?”

It’s a great question and yet I’m flummoxed as to how to respond. I figure some of you are much better at explaining these things than I am so I’m wondering if you have any thoughts on what it means, what it looks like or if anyone’s written anything really good on the matter.
