I live a female-led relationship (FLR) with my husband. This means we have a marriage where we have agreed that I have the authority; I am the head of the household. The final decisions are mine and my leadership extends to every aspect of our marriage. Note, I say we have agreed. I may be the boss, but this was a joint decision.
Women of the world, isn't it time you asked the question: why can't my man be my housewife?
I've made that change in my own household and believe me, it works and it can work for you too. Yes, my husband is now my housewife and we live in a female-led relationship. He cleans, cooks, does the laundry, and irons. He stays at home and I go out to the office. He's not just a housewife though, he does have a paying job but fortunately he works from home. This allows me to dress him in pretty dresses and skirts in order to cement his role.

This article looks at a typical Saturday in my own marriage where I wear the trousers, metaphorically and sometimes physically and my husband doesn't.

It's learnt from every single interaction we have with the society we live in, from the time we are born. Since much of society is still largely controlled by men, we learn that men should be in control and, despite many social advances, that it is still a woman's place to look after the home and children.
How many marriages do you know where the woman 'wears the trousers'? How many matriarchs do you know who rule benignly over the entire family? I believe that this is not enough and I, and many of my female friends, are now embarking on a more formal form of leadership in our marriages and relationships with our menfolk; the
I couldn't believe it. Anger doesn't go anywhere near describing how I felt. I'd been working here, in this office, for five years and I'd done pretty well. Maybe I could be a little outspoken at times but if people don't perform then they need to know about it. If they don't then performance dips, doesn't it? In the world of finance you only get split-second chances and if you miss them you lose millions. I know that I was not officially in charge of the department but I took on the role naturally. A born leader.
