i wouldnt call it submission on his part. this is where i get really 'old school'. in my personal life/home/family, the man is the head/leader. now, that being said, i continue to be as opinionated and willed as i was before i entered into this relationship. and he recieves what i bring to the table with no fuss. if he's set on doing something a certain way and i can show him a better way, of course he will do the better way. he will not punish me or our family for being right, nor will he stubbornly resist my advice. we are a partnership and we work together. now, on the occassion that we clash on something, he does has the final say. i am better at some things and he is better at some things. there's no competition when we are both working on the same team, towards a common goal.

i wouldnt have a relationship with a man who did not have knowledge of self and live this culture. the foundation must be strong in order to build and if i know he is god and he relies on a mystery then we wont have a strong foundation.
