@NaijaLander is our spokesman… Giddem Hot!!! :no_good_man:


Okay o.


Good stuff.




@VivianO, can you share with us what your definition of a submissive woman is ?


Your most welcome :blush:


To my own understanding, a submissive woman is a wife who is willing to respect, obey and love her husband irrespective of his flaws





Going by your definition of the term, do you think men ought to be submissive too ?


Hmmmm, now that’s a tricky question. Naturally, men are not submissives. But in a case where a man just has to let go of his little pride, he can be flexible and just be submissive sometimes. But the man has to he dominant most times tho


Why ?


Cos that’s their nature. Men are naturally dominant


Not necessarily. Some men will rather take a back seat and let their wives make the decisions. Do you think that makes them any less men ?


Lol. What’s your own view on this biko


Nah that in no way makes them less dominant. Men in that category are just chilled and would rather prefer thier wifes take the front row. But notwithstanding, they still have to step in and rule their kingdom so as not to be taken for granted




Yes… It is vice versa tho… Cos a woman can be all these and more but if the man aint …, the marriage can’t work…


I personally do not subscribe to the submissive woman label. Marriage is a partnership as far as I am concerned. Both husband and wife hold equal stakes in the marriage. If submission comes in at all, it should be from both ends. This saying, “Men are naturally not submissive,” to me has only been a ploy by misogynistic/chauvinistic men to bend women to their will.

The truth is, if you’re a man who loves his wife, you’ll submit to your wife just as much as she submits to you.

Now to demystify the “submission” thing: it’s not as complicated as it’s made to look. I believe it’s all about listening to each other when it matters. As a man, you don’t single-handedly make decisions that’ll affect the family simply because you’re the “head” of the family. Nah, that sucks. Same thing goes for the woman. Submissiveness involves caring what each one thinks. Listening. Being considerate.

It’s marriage. There’s no boss; only partners who are equally important.
