Today’s modern independent woman believes it is a sign of insecurity to submit to a man. Women fought hard and long to get equal rights to men. While that battle has proven to be quite advantageous in business, sports, and other male dominated fields, it struggles in the relationship arena.
I have talked to several man from various backgrounds, ethnicities, and ages and one thing remains the same, they love a “traditional” woman. The woman who’s almost obsolete today. That woman that takes care of the family, cooks, cleans, and most importantly submits to her husband. We, as women, know and understand that the man in our life needs to feel important and in control of his household. Not only this but men like to be needed by their woman.
I’m a modern woman and I had to ask myself “can I let him be the man he needs and yearns to be for the sake of our relationship?”. When I was younger I would’ve responded with another question; Why. Why can’t he just accept me the way I am? Why can’t he respect that I make just as much money as he does (if not more)? But as I grew older and life kept teaching me lessons, I realized that sacrifices are to be made in a marriage. Sometimes those sacrifices cause us to do some things we may not necessarily like to do so long as it doesn’t change the fabric of our being. We can still be strong independent women but I think we should leave it outside of the house and let our men be men.
My hubby loves the house to be cleaned with Pine-Sol. I, don’t like Pine-Sol and I refused to use it. Something so small created so much confusion in our house. One day I decided to just try it his way. I still don’t like Pine-Sol but we have no more drama and he’s happy. My point is if your man is making a big stink about submitting, try it out and see. Sometimes the look of shock, amazement, and happiness, is worth submitting.
