I see lots of posts about wives allowing/not allowing their husbands to do things. And husbands that don't let or do let their wives do things.
Is this how your marriage works? I don't get it.
My husband is not my dad and I am not his mother. We don't give each other permission to do things. We are adults. When we started dating we discussed the boundaries we think a relationships should have and we were on the same page. We respect each other's decision making and each person gets to make choices. We make decisions together.
My marriage is far from perfect. But I really wonder if the high divorce rate in this country is partly because people think they get to set rules for their spouse. Adults just shouldn't be treated that way.
