"But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God." - 1 Corinthians 11:3
There is a clear established order among God's creation and even among God Himself. Among the sexes specifically marriages the husband is to take the leading role. Likewise among the Godhead the Father takes the leading role. This does not mean that the husband or the Father is greater in "being or essence" but greater only in function. Throughout scripture we see that the Father is the one sending the Son, and the Son faithfully submits to the Father's will instead of His own. So then the proper formula for marriage is for their to be a head and that head should be the husband. But not because he is better than his wife but because this is how God ordained marriages to function properly and orderly. A lot of marriage issues would be prevented and resolved if husbands would be the leaders of their home and wives would submit to their husbands as unto the Lord. But more importantly any human leadership, if it is to succeed needs to be under the headship of Christ. Christ is our head and He will bless obedience to His word. Because without a head you cannot get ahead!
