What do all the different types of Taken In Hand relationship have in common?

They are all committed, sexually-exclusive, monogamous relationships in which the husband has the balance of power. The form a particular Taken In Hand relationship takes is not fixed and preconceived (you can't decide exactly what form a Taken In Hand relationship will take in advance and simply channel the other person into your vision): it arises out of the interactions of the two persons as the individuals they are, and it evolves over time rather than remaining static.

In all cases:

  1. they both wholeheartedly want this rather than suffering it as un unpleasant duty or burden
  2. the husband is in charge—to his wife's delight
  3. the husband puts his wife and their relationship first rather than being purely self-serving
