    The problem I found, when I was a complementarian trying to live the passage seriously (end being essentially egalitarian), was that I felt like a hypocrite. The husband as a figurehead leader, who is supposed to be in authority, but you know he’s not and he knows he’s not, is really just living a lie. We were so much happier when we realized we could stop pretending and trying to be things we were not, and just be ourselves in side-by-side mutuality.

    • Great to hear from somebody who has tried this and realized similar. I was a pretty firm egalitarian by the time I started dating who is now my wife so I never really experienced it myself, just seen it in others. I’d never quite seen it as hypocrisy, just unnecessary and unhelpful labels, but I can definitely see now how you would feel that way living it out.
