I guess I am not sure why any woman would want to be in a relationship like this (I am not bashing, I just don't understand)? I have worked hard to be the person I have become, and I am working hard to earn my degree and have a better life for me and my children and to be able to care of myself and my children and my family for that matter, I would have a hard time letting a man take away my independence and individuality to fulfill his need to have a "submissive wife" and to feel like he was wearing the pants in the family. What happened to equal partners?Answer Question

I agree, I would have a hard time as well. I like being equals! I like that my opinion matters, and I know I'm outspoken at times but I LOVE that my husband is ok with that.

I think I am considered to be a submissive wife and NO he does NOT take away my individuality. Neither one of us has independence, we do everything together and as a team. He pays the bills, he makes the decisions. He has better ideas then I do and he does what he has to, to take care of his family. He is better with money, so he decides what happens with it. If by "equal" you mean that we all have our roles then yes, we are very much equal. I cook, clean, take care of the kids. He works, pays the bills, and figures out to take care of us all on that money. He always asks my opinion but he is older and wiser and his thought process works differently then mine. I am not bashing myself, but I do however know my own weaknesses.

I could never do it either. Make a the decisions and I am just left sitting their doing what he tells me to do.
