Catholics should read section 74 of Casti Conuubii of Pius XI. He actually was more biblical than the current Catholic hierarchy who do not even have the topic of wifely obedience in either the catechism or in Vatican II.

It sounds like something you'd do if you were mad at your wife...." I enjoin you, wifey, to study Dutch tapestries woven between 1533 and 1548 at the post graduate level....so there."
