Because Christianity is bigger than Biblical manhood or Biblical womanhood (Blog of Retha Faurie)

Myth: “It’s the wife’s responsibility to keep her husband/ the marriage happy. If she is submissive enough, everything else will fall into place.”

The Bible nowhere teaches that a wife has a bigger responsibility to keep a husband happy than the other way round, nor that things will go right if she is submissive enough. Common sense understanding of human nature would tell you that the more you obey someone’s every whim without question, the more selfish and demanding his whims become. (Also see submit does not mean obey.)
