Is there any scripture says that men are equivalent to god for women?

Yes mr.polai your first question is simple for purans it could be found simply:—
from the same question answered by ricross :—
Your second question:—
A man, so long he does not take a wife, is but (a) half (incomplete) being. A half (thing) can not beget. A whole (thing) only can beget. This is the dictum of the S'ruti.
—Vyasa Smriti 2.14
And from my answer here:—
- In that family, where the husband is pleased with his wife and the wife with her husband, happiness will assuredly be lasting.
- Women must be honoured and adorned by their fathers, brothers, husbands, and brothers-in-law, who desire (their own) welfare.
- Where women are honoured, there the gods are pleased; but where they are not honoured, no sacred rite yields rewards.
