if your husband doesn't have a dominate personality.  If your husband is submissive by nature...someone is gonna need to step up.  I know a girl who is leaving her husband because she wants to be a submissive wife and he wont step up

That's true in my marriage. Neither of us are dominant or submissive. Just depends on the day and the circumstances. The dom/sub thing would never ever work.

So she wants to leave a man who is kind for a domineering asshole? WTF?

This couple has been married 15 years.  They have three kids.  You would think that his being submissive is something she would have figured out a long time ago.

Isn't it the same way if a wife has a dominate personality and she won't step down? It takes 2 to tango... fake it til you make it? But what does she want him to do? My husband isn't the most dominate man in the world; yah I wish he's be more so; but I wouldn't leave him over it.

She wants someone to run the household.  She wants boudaries and stuff.

It wouldn't work for us because my husband, in his words, wants to be married to an equal in all aspects.  Neither of us is in charge of anything.  We literally discuss everything, even renting movies at the Redbox.  It's what works for us.

She probably doesn't even know what that even is, she just wants him to slap her fanny during sex...

Dominant does not mean domineering asshole. Get some factual information before you post!

Agree. My dh is very mellow and delegates a lot of stuff to me. It works because I am a more forceful personality than him most of the time. If I were 'submissive' nothing would get done around here- EVER! I don't think we would have ended up together if I were the submissive wife type. We balance each other out personality-wise.
