Why doesn't the bible teach this?

Gen 2:24 - Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

1Co 11:11 - Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

1Co 11:12 - For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.

Pro 18:22 - Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.

Eph 5:28 - So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

There were women judges in the OT. Women playing key roles in God's plan of salvation. Jesus presented Himself to women first after His resurrection. Jesus stood up to the Pharisees and leaders several times to defend particular women. Jesus had close and dear friends who were women. The verses above show that women and men are equally valued by God.

Why doesn't the bible teach [a John Lennon song?]

Because it was too busy teaching something better. Love for women not based on profit, outward beauty, or satisfying selfish sexual desires, but on her intrinsic value based on her being, just like you, a child of God.

Lennon's adultery pact:
When John left Yoko for a year of reckless debauchery he told her 'you must take a lover too'

Though they continued to exhilarate each other on a creative level, their physical relationship inevitably lost some of its initial blaze. John's sexual drive remained as intense as ever, but Yoko was finding herself less able, or inclined, to deal with it. She was an increasingly unresponsive lover and John taunted her that she was like a Victorian wife - 'you just lie there and think of England'.

They often discussed the raging sexual hunger that had been so easy to indulge when he was on the road with The Beatles. He had expected it to go away when he hooked up with Yoko, but it hadn't. 'I don't understand it,' he would tell her. 'I'm madly in love with you, but why do I still keep looking at girls in the street?'

He wasn't just looking. In New York, where they lived, they were invited to a party at the home of a Left-wing activist on the night of Richard Nixon's re- election to the White House in 1972. Upset at Nixon winning again, John was totally out of his head on drugs, pills and drink.

Yoko recalls a girl there, 'not the kind you'd ever think John would be attracted to. She didn't come on to him at all, but he just pulled her and went into the next room'. As the grunts and groans of her husband having sex with another woman came through the wall, somebody put on a Bob Dylan record to try to drown the noise and spare Yoko's blushes 'but we heard it anyway'.

She tried to stay calm, and asked one of her assistants to go in with a flower for John and tell him she still loved him. The assistant, understandably, refused, and Yoko was left with much to think about.

'That situation really woke me up,' said Yoko.

Yeah, really, why doesn't the Bible teach this???
