To the woman He said:
“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;
In pain you shall bring forth children;
Your desire shall be for your husband,
And he shall rule over you.” (Genesis 3:16 – about 1,420 BC)
At the marriage ceremony, man said to man,
“I shall be your husband and you shall be mine.
Our desire shall be for each other.
Neither shall rule the other.
We shall multiply our joy without conception, and bring forth wind to relieve our pain.” (UK Marriage Ceremony, 29th March, 2014 AD)
