    That honestly kinds of depends upon the degree involved though. While I probably wouldn't put up with a woman forbiding me to do something unreasonable, I would probably avoid activities that I know are likely to cause conflict simply because they aren't worth the trouble.

    There was never any doubt that my father "wore the pants" while I was growing up, and even he knew well enough to do that much.

    So, IOW, "humoring" her, perhaps even bordering on patronizing? I'm kidding. I can understand that, and I think both parties in a relationship would do this, if you know your SO disapproves of something especially, out of respect for one another.

    I remember my friend's grandparents. She was a big giant woman, and he was a little skinny man, and she was SOOO mean to him. I felt really bad for that poor old man. He was pretty much like her slave because her big fat ass rarely moved off her sofa.

    They're dancing terms.

    Well, yes they are, but one never knows if it's an innuendo or something, when it comes to you.

    I cannot imagine forbidding my husband to do anything. Nor him forbidding me from doing anything. Sure we have had our spats, angered each other, been annoying and irritating to each other at times, been insensitive or thoughtless to each other at times, but trying to control each other simply is not part of that equation. In a good marriage though, I do think partners talk out problems and issues, ask each other for concessions or help or change in behavior or whatever, and work out the issues as appropriate. But controlling each other? That is never a healthy marriage.

    Exactly.

    Like I said, even a woman who might appear to be more "submissive" on the surface can wield a great deal of power within her relationship.

    If nothing else (and I think we both know that they are capable of far, far more), she can withhold sex and therefore render the relationship miserable for the man anyway. If she's truly unsatisfied, she can simply leave his sorry ass, which is an especially effective threat given the fact that women tend to find new partners much more easily than men.

    As such, it's pretty much always in a man's interests to respect his partner's interests and desires. If he doesn't, he is only harming himself.

    I agree with that to an extent. Some people have serious problems though. What if it was something like drinking? What if he was a problem drinker? Those are the kinds of things I'm talking about.

    Withhold sex?!

    I don't agree with making threats like that. That's pathetic.
