15/4/3. Are not women’s right violated when during the Church sacrament of marriage the priest asks the bridegroom, “Are you obedient?”
In reality the word “obedient” does not at all violate women’s rights. There is no violation of women’s rights, simply there are some national, local traditions which grant or do not grant certain rights to the members of the society.
When bride in the church says, “I am responsible” it does not mean that he becomes his wife’s master or tyrant. That kind of responsibility means love and caretaking such as is God’s attitude towards the human beings. Both men and women are equal before Jesus Christ and taking his name they are called Christians.
With blessing, Father Shmavon Ghevondian
