God created woman equal with man, not inferior. My Christian, you must love your wife as your companion, and not consider her as your slave, for she is a creature of God, just as you are.
God was crucified for her as much as you. You call God ‘Father,’ she calls Him ‘Father’ too.
Both of you have the same Faith, the same Baptism, the same Book of the Gospels, the same Holy Communion, the same Paradise to enjoy.
God does not regard her as inferior to you.
Saint Kosmas Aitolos
