Background[ edit ] Christians seek to uphold the seriousness of wedding vows. Yet, they respond with compassion to deep hurts by recognizing that divorce , though less than the ideal, is sometimes necessary to relieve one partner of intolerable hardship, unfaithfulness or desertion. Christian Egalitarians believe in an equal partnership of the wife and husband with neither being designated as the leader in the marriage or family. Instead, the wife and husband share a fully equal partnership in both their marriage and in the family. Its proponents teach "the fundamental biblical principle of the equality of all human beings before God". Christian Complementarians prescribe husband-headship—a male-led hierarchy.
