"Eventually" is not true... people can maintain equal relationships where one partner is not an authority above the other. If you can't maintain that basic standard of mutual respect and treatment then there's probably a problem.Eventually someone has to take the leader role and someone has to follow. Team work is ideal but not always possible.
Either the man or the woman can lead in various situations if the need ever happens to arise but it shouldn't stay that way with one partner overshadowing the other's autonomy and becoming controlling... Anyway, one person taking the driver's seat every once in a while in certain situations if necessary is in no way equivalent to the idea that women have an obligation to "submit" to their husbands who supposedly have inherent authority and superiority over them simply because they were born male.
An equal relationship is not a matriarchy nor is it a patriarchy. Don't you get the concept of equality? One person should not be above the other person, neither one has inherent authority over the other. Anecdotal observations mean nothing.I cannot think of a single matriarchy I have known personally that has been a happy household.
Wow, what lovely stereotypes you've got there lol. It's not accurate to real life.Men TEND (I know there are always exceptions) to be more levelheaded and reasonable when treated with respect by their wife.
Women TEND to be more relaxed when the man does have everything under control (again, I know there are exceptions - including my father).
