    When I talk about submission, I'm talking about it in the religious/cultural/societal context. In a relationship, would you submit to your man?

    To be specific:
    If you were in a relationship, would you submit to your boyfriend/husband? As in, being second to him, letting him be head in the relationship, letting him be head/'man' of the household, letting him make all the decisions in the relationship, letting him have the final say, letting him decide stuff for you, letting him boss you around, doing as you are told by him, asking for his permission to do something/go somewhere, doing stuff for him ever if he is not obliged to do stuff back (e.g. you cook and clean for him even if he doesn't himself) etc. Sometimes sex may come into it e.g. he wants you to do certain things.

    All in all, I'm talking about gender roles, and the notion that you should 'obey' your husband no matter what.

    I think you have to be more specific. Give us an example?

    In that aspect, no (although its kinda vague, a better definition might be better, examples?)

    If I get married, it wouldn't be "love, honour and obey" it'd probably be "love honour and respect" Sexually, well what people do behind closed doors is nobody's business but theirs :innocent:

    Only in the bedroom

    Otherwise no one should be in charge of anyone else, mutual respect is a better way forward and the only one i am going to accept in my daily life and relationships with people.

    Not me personally, as it goes against my personal attitudes towards traditional gender roles. I feel very strongly resentful about submitting and giving them all the power in a relationship to someone just because they have a penis.

    And if it means that he goes to work whilst I have to stay home, it makes me very vulnerable/dependent should the marriage become unstable for whatever reason. I think it is important to have a level of independence so that you are able to support yourself (or yourself and kids) if you end up on your own.

    I have no idea what you mean in this context, but i have just got together with a guy and we have agreed that he is going to be in in charge and dominant whilst I will submit and do what he tells me....in and out the bedroom

    I just like being controlled by a guy...sounds ridiculous I know.
