I for one believed that the more I submitted to my husband, the more accountable to Christ he would be. However, in daily living this may take quite a long time to be worked out due to fallen human nature. And surely this is why this is a problem not only in the LC.
I remember this being my thought also. (in addition to many other things)
I'm not so certain this is a wrong thought. It just took some awful twists and turns with the cultural things of the LC.

And...we are all "working out our own salvation".

But...I remember being a little pleased that HE was the responsible one before the Lord.
Perhaps even taking a little perverse pleasure in the fact that he was responsible for me!
