Early in marriage, I realized that I had no problem allowing my husband to take the lead (though I had ways to go as far as true submission was concerned).
My attitude had a lot to do with my upbringing; I grew up watching my mum, a strong woman, defer to her husband all her life.
I knows many wives are living a different reality.
They feel abandoned and desire to see their husbands take up their God-given responsibilities in the home and marriage.
Other wives are not living with total abandonment, just little pockets and gaps where they want their husbands to fill.
