Marriage is a messy business. It comes with all sorts of roller-coaster emotions and unexpected events.
Even though there are happy moments that make it worth the sacrifices and blood and sweat, but it is safe to say that you can never be fully prepared.
It is a relationship that is full of surprises, whenever both of you assume that everything is all sorted, BOOM!
There will come so many events where husband and wife will have different opinions and reasonable facts to back their opinion up.
Most of the time, such differences are worked out through discussions and finding common ground, but in many other cases, one of the partners is dominant, and the other is submissive.
This article will shed light on the advantages of being a submissive wife, its cons, what it means, and why being submissive doesn’t mean that you’re weak.
The pros of being submissive
There are always two sides to a coin. Sure there are a few cons of being the submissive one, but there are some pros too, which works as a motivator for submissive women.
There is a universal rule when it comes to respecting… Give respect and get respect. When the dominant party continuously receives concerns from the submissive partner, he is bound to reciprocate it. When one party is submissive, be it a woman, there is a clear line of respect between the couple. When there is no disagreement or debate about who the decision-maker is of the home, there are no arguments, and both the partners respect and love each other.
2. Peaceful home
Marriage is a paradox of random things. Similarly, it’s both healthy and sensitive at the same time. One of its strengths is the peace it brings to the members of the house. Your partner should be someone who gives you a break from the chaos of this world. If only confusion is what you’re offering each other, then maybe it’s time to reconsider if it’s worth it. One of the many things a submissive wife ensures is that the house is peaceful – vacant of meaningless fights and chaos so that both partners can flourish and grow together in a calm and positive environment.
3. No headache of decision-making
Decision making can be a very stressful responsibility. When it comes to your house, it can be even more pressurizing than other decisions. When you’re the submissive one, you don’t have to stress how to handle what is just one of the many advantages a submissive wife has. You can party, hang out with friends, do whatever you want, and leave all the worrying decisions to your loving husband. Your husband will only do what’s best for both of you and your marriage, which is why you know that decisions are in trusted hands.
The cons of being submissive
Being a submissive wife has its cons too. Some of those cons are discussed below.
1. Sometimes you crave control.
There are times when you want to be listened to, too, but being the submissive one, you know that’s not going to happen. This is one of the cons of being the submissive one in a relationship.
2. The husband is the decision-maker
The submissive wife listens to whatever her husband decides, which means that she has no control over the household’s decision. If there is a decision you’re uncomfortable with, try politely discussing it with your husband. The husband has the responsibility to make his wife happy when he is the dominant one, so being the one in charge, there are high chances that he will listen to you, but of course, the final decision will be his.
3. High chances of being manipulated
If you’re the submissive one and your husband isn’t the right person, this means you’ve given over control of your life and marriage to an unfit man. This increases the chances of you being manipulated, and the relationship turns toxic. You need to be conscious of when you need to let go when this is the case. Because if you decide to hold on, it will only result in you being utterly unhappy, and if you choose to have children, they will learn unhealthy relationship behaviors.
So should I be submissive or not?
You don’t have to change yourself to make a marriage work. It’s not a question of what you should be. It’s a question of what you are and who you are compatible with. Ask yourself if being a follower brings you happiness from the inside or not. If yes, being a submissive wife is your best call because it will get nothing but happiness and joy in your marriage.
