Men, do you feel your wife respects you as the man of the house? Do you believe you are the man of the house? Or do you feel she is overbearing and talks down to you?
Women, do you treat your man like the man of the house? Do you believe he is the leader of your household? If he says yes and you say no, will you do whatever you want anyway, regardless of his word? If he says 'I'm the leader of this household and I'm putting my foot down', would you let him?
I think it's important a man & woman are of equal partners in a relationship, however I feel both genders still have their own specific attributes they lend to relationships. For men, I believe they lend support, confidence, strength and dependability, things that are generally sought after by women. I believe men have to put less emphasis on who has the power in the relationship, and work on how to be the best fit for each other, how to correctly support each other in your own unique ways so your family can flourish and be happy.
And no, personally if my husband was the type to put his foot down on things in our life instead of working with me on them, I would probably not be with him. I believe that is an old, outdated way of thinking. Just my opinion
