It requires that the wife has a proper position in the family, the husband a proper position outside the family.

Father does the father's duty, son the son's, elder than brother his own, younger brother his own. The husband does his duty and the wife hers, thus the family lives in the right way. If families live in the right way, people all over the land then can live in peace.
