A wife is the female partner in a marriage. Her male counterpart is her husband. The role of the wife is to maintain the household, bear and raise children, and succour her husband[1].

Ephesians

Wives are mentioned several times in the book of Ephesians.

"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing." Ephesians 5:22-24

"Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it" Ephesians 5:25

"Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband." Ephesians 5:33
