Dear Michael,
     I do not know what you mean when you write:

>My gut feeling in reading plhn kai `umeis `oi kaq `ena,  `ekastos, thn
>`eautou gunaika òutws agapatw `ws `eauton, `h de gunh `ina fobhtai  ton
>andra is that hina used as an imperative carries the idea that the wives
>must respect their husbands but that respect should be predicated upon the
>love of their husbands. Am I reading too much into this?

Do you mean that women are not obliged to respect their husbands if they do
not sense love coming from their husbands?
