Ephesians 5:22 ” Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.”

This verse has been used out of context many times.  But to look at it correctly, we must read the verse before it.  In Ephesians 5:21  we are told to submit to one another out of reverence to Christ.  When we are subject to one another,  we take on the heart of a servant…putting the needs of others first.  In that context then, wives are submitting or placing in an orderly fashion the family unit…with all parties acting in the interest of another.
