Q: Is male headship a result of the curse?

A: This question is raised as a result of Genesis 3:16, which records the Curse on the woman because of sin. The verse states the following:

To the woman He said: “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain you shall bring forth children; your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”

So is male headship a result of the curse? The succinct answer is that a woman desired her husband and was under his authority before the Fall and the Curse, so these verses cannot mean that male headship was part of the judgment in Genesis 3:14–19. Male headship is not a curse; however, the spheres of responsibility for a husband and wife as well as their marriage relationship are cursed with conflict, which includes the wife trying to usurp her husband’s authority.

Learn how we reach these conclusions based on Scripture, and find out more about biblical headship in this feedback response by Steve Golden, AiG–U.S.
