  • Yes, but I know that his decisions take into account my feelings, wants and desires so it's not a problem.

  • I consider myself submissive. When we have a big decision to make we talk it out and decide together but if we disagree I have to trust that my husband will make the best choice for our family. That also means that I don't come back with a "I told you so" if what he did doesn't work out. My dh is the leader of our house. I wouldn't want that responsibility on me anyway.

  • Hell no!

  • Hell no! If anything, he likes me to be in charge. I don't need him to conform to some old fashioned "he-man" stereotype to prove that he's "man enough" for me.

  • In our family, my Hubby and I have areas of responsibility. So neither is submissive or the opposite. I refer to him in his areas and so on. If there is an important decision to be made, we make it together. If we disagree, usually we usually lean to the one who feels more strong about the subject.

  • I have never been submissive I had two brothers and my mom and dad had no special thoughts or treatments for me being the only girl I was raised to be just like a man on equal footing some may not like that but I understand it.

  • No. We are an equal partnership and take each other's opinions into consideration. If we don't agree on something, we'll discuss the matter until a compromise can be made that we both agree on.
