I agree with Ruttermama. Being submissive does NOT mean he gets to do whatever he wants whenever he wants regardless of your feelings and wants. Being submissive means that you trust your husband enough to make the right decisions for your family, though you can offer your opinion too. In my family, it works out great. Sometimes DH will say "just tell me what YOU want" so that he knows I will be happy with the decision, but most of the time we discuss major decisions together, and we discuss the pros and cons and then I have to trust him to make the decision. 99% of the time, that decision that he makes has been the right one for our family. Being submissive does not mean you are to be bulldozed over.
