The bible verses about marriage emphasize the wife's need to submit and the husband's need to love.

Ephesians 5:22-25, 28-29 
(King James Version) 

22. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 

23. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 

24. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 

25. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 

28. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 

29. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:


Submission is something the wife willing does like Christ willingly submitted to die on the cross. It is not something the husband demands.
