As a wife, what if I’m uncomfortable submitting to my husband?

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Ephesians 5:22-24
            Submission is a willful decision to allow someone to lead.  A marriage is a partnership of two people who love each other and (hopefully) love the Lord.  However, even in a partnership, someone has to make the final decisions.
            Paul in Ephesians stated that the woman must submit to the man and the man must submit to the Lord.  A woman will have an easier time submitting to a man who is submitted to the Lord, humble before his God and obedient to His word. 
            Both the man and the woman submit to someone in a relationship, but ultimately all are submitting to Lord.
