For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
As the church is subject to Christ and His word, so should the wives be subject to their husbands. (notice the plurals)
 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
A husband should love his wife and give himself for her as Christ loved the church and gave himself for IT.
 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Second Corinthians chapter eleven verse two is a good cross reference to this " For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ"......and also 1 Cor. 6:15-17 "Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit."
 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
