Yes. I would feel cramped by a subservient woman.
There are times in a marriage where either
partner is better off uttering the occasional "yes dear", than arguing at that precise moment. Then later when the mood is better, things can be more productively picked over.
Saying sorry the moment you are accused of something is another good way to diffuse rows before they get going. It's all ego anyway. If somebody's ego is at the helm, it does not help to meet ego with ego - that always leads to war.
