Eve is the mother of all human beings. God cursed her and her offspring by increasing the pain she would experience during childbirth. Also, God created division between husband and wife, where the wife would want to rule over the husband, but the husband would be the one ruling over her instead. This does not mean, though, that the wife would be a submissive slave. The husband is to love his wife like Christ loves the church (his followers). The husband is to be willing to make sacrifices and love her unconditionally. This curse on Eve is similar to the theological term of Federal Headship.
