Its just what works for us.
I like that one person in the house has the last say, can be the boss, take control, deal out punishments, withold sex if need be, decide how our kids will be raised, demand what they want or there will be consequences, I like that there is only one person wearing the pants and is the head of the household, that way we both don't have to trouble ourselves and think!
Only problem is, some people say my poor husband is a doormat and can't stand up for himself, or nor can he manufacture his own thoughts! Well I just say BOLOGNA! He adores living this way being told what to do, so don't "oh poor dear" him! Just because I treat him as someone who is less than human doesn't mean he doesn't like our marriage or think its the way a MAN is supposed to behave.
