    My husband is a very gentle man,

    not dominant or domineering in any way. In some ways he prefers a more modern, equal style of marriage and would like me to make all the decisions. But I'm pretty old fashioned really I suppose. I prefer not to be in charge. I try to defer to him and allow/ encourage him to make...
