1. How would you describe the happiest couple you know? What about their relationship stands out to you?
2. Talk about your first reaction to Paul’s command for wives to “submit to your husbands as to the Lord.” When you’ve heard that verse or idea in the past, how has it made you feel? Did Kyle’s explanation change your feelings at all?
3. Kyle said: “A great relationship boils down to being a submission competition.” When have you seen that to be true in someone else’s relationship? Has it ever been true in your own?
4. “Happy couples put each other first by going first in an effort to be last.” But going first at being last can be scary. Write down one or two things you’re afraid might happen if you “put down your side of the rope” first. (Hint – finish this statement: I’m afraid he”ll start or she’ll stop…)
