I completely agree. I am happy that my husband has taken the role of being the leader. And as the leader he makes decisions with consideration for my views, yet the final decisions are definitely his.
I am happy to be led and controlled, though I do not want anybody to assume I am just a little lap dog, but I know that I am not managerial type, and I like the fact that he is.
I also agree with the writer who says that being in love does not automatically assume that spanking is involved, but the fact remains that a leader has to punish as well as reward. But punishment need not be cruel or excessive.
