  •  Exactly. Consenting adults and all that. (5+ / 0-)

    Go head and submit if it rings your chimes.  Just don't give it (back) the force of law.

    •  In the '50s I knew 3 women whose husbands were (5+ / 0-)

      convinced that their wives voted Republican just as they had been instructed to do. The women were convinced that their husbands held silly ideas but were easily managed.  

      It seemed to work out for them, but I was glad my marriage wasn't like that.

      The right of the women of this State to be secure in their persons against unreasonable searches shall not be violated by the State legislature.

        I had an aunt who stated most firmly that the wife was to submit to and obey her husband.  Our family knew exactly who ruled that particular roost and it was not my uncle.  It was, from all appearances, a wonderful and loving union of souls.

        Perhaps the secret is that the wife agrees to do everything the husband tells her to, and the husband never, ever tells her to do anything.  (She was a great cook and kept a beautiful house and yard to be sure.)
