Who wears the pants in your relationship? Some guys think they do, but do they really? Watch for these signs that you’re in female led relationships.
When my son was in travel baseball many years ago, there was a couple that had four children. What you would expect is either a team effort trying to wrestle four small children or at a minimum, one coaching while the other ran around after the other three. What was apparent and not cool to the rest of us around, was that being in female led relationships, was totally okay with the guy.
He used to show up with two kids in a wagon, one running to get on the playing field and the littlest strapped on his back like a backpack. Trying to smile, we would all ask, “Where is Suzy?” which was really a jerk move on our part because we all knew what the answer was. Not here.
Female led relationships – 50 signs that scream you are in one
So, we would joke about what went on in their house, like her saying “Hey Todd, the laundry isn’t going to do itself,” while he lived his non-joking life of looking miserable. If he was a stay at home dad that would make sense, but he had a full-time job, and she didn’t.
The whole thing was nonsensical to the rest of us who were typically ball field widows whose husbands got to coach when they wanted, golf when they wanted, and had very little responsibility for child rearing at all.
Although somewhat envious of Suzy, years later I look back at it and realize I don’t think I could be comfortable leading my husband by the nose, although he would insist that I am. In my world, I juggle and struggle, and my husband is mostly oblivious to what goes on in my day or our household unless it directly involves him.
That is the way I like it. He has his thing and I have mine. The strangest part is that Todd had absolutely no idea that his marriage was different from everyone else’s.
If being in a female led relationship is what you want, well, all power to you! But if you believe you’re holding the reins, take a look at these 50 signs of typical female led relationships and ask yourself if you see most of these signs in your relationship.
When in a relationship, there is a spot that everyone takes whether submissive or dominant. If it works for you, then screw it. If it isn’t working for you, then trust in your love enough to say something.
