How would Complementarians (i.e., Patriarchalists) and Egalitarians answer these questions?

1. MARRIAGE:
a) What things must a wife first get her husband's permission to be or do that a husband does not first need to get his wife's permission to be or do?
b) What things must a husband first get his wife's permission to be or do that a wife does not first need to get her husband's permission to be or do?
c) What things is a husband allowed to be or do that a wife is not allowed to be or do?
d) What things is a wife allowed to be or do that a husband is not allowed to be or do?

2. CHURCH:
a) What things in church must a woman, because she is a woman, first get permission to be or do that a man, because he is a man, does not first need to get permission to be or do?
b) What things in church must a man, because he is a man, first get permission to be or do that a woman, because she is a woman, does not first need to get permission to be or do?
c) What things in church is a man, because he is a man, allowed to be or do that a woman, because she is a woman, is not allowed to be or do?
d) What things in church is a woman, because she is a woman, allowed to be or do that a man, because he is a man, is not allowed to be or do?

For each answer, also explain "why."

  1. I find it interesting that you got no answers. Are these questions too tough for some?

    1a can't think of anything
    1b can't think of anything
    1c a man, dress and act as a man, use the man's restroom .... and similar
    1d a woman, dress and act as a women (breastfeed etc), use the woman's restroom ....

    2a can't think of anything
    2b can't think of anything
    2c nothing according to Scripture
    3d nothing according to Scripture

    In Christ the dividing walls of rascism, social superiority, genderism, and anything ideas of special superiorities are taken down. We are all at the level ground at the foot of the cross. It is Christ only we owe our allegiance to. We are all children, brothers and sister, mothers and fathers, relatives , etc. in Christ. It is the Holy Spirit that equips us, not our flesh.
