Should a Wife Seek Biblical Counsel from Someone Other than Her Husband?
Does a wife go only to her husband to get biblical guidance? Does she turn to mentors? This is what one woman is dealing with in her marriage.
Is it ok to ask other people/seek counsel regarding questions on scripture from someone other than your husband?My husband says wives are to go to their husband for teaching on scripture (I cannot remember the verse he uses off the top of my head). But there are a few things he sees in scripture that I don’t agree with or am not sure about. I would like to ask my pastor and a female mentor what they see in scripture regarding those topics. How can I only go to my husband if we don’t see “eye to eye” and would like further counsel on the topics?

Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church. 1 Corinthians 14:34,35

Live a poured out life for Christ,
I have appreciated the advice from this page. I still strive to be the wife that God wants me to be. However, I am in a marriage where my husband is not saved. I pay him godly respect and pray for him daily. With that said, he knows very little scripture, cannot yet function as the spiritual leader of the house (although I do let him lead), and at this time is not interested in discovering these things along side of me. What is a wife to do in this case when there cannot be spiritual guidance or godly wisdom from her husband?
You would seek counsel from other believers.
