For the last week I've been dropping hints, and emailing my rather easygoing husband articles from this site. Well, last night we had a frank talk. I explained that I have a primal need for my mate to be in charge, that if I win too many arguments I actually feel insecure.
After a long silence, he said "Did you know who you were marrying when you said yes?" But the thing is, before he was deployed with the army, he was much firmer with me. There was no doubting who was in charge, and if I did he made his authority felt.
I would love to hear advice from other sensitive, caring men. How do I express my needs to him without tearing him down? He feels like he doesn't deserve me already.
Thank you for helping someone so new to this site.
