My boyfriend and I had a very interesting discussion tonight...
Apparently we have vastly different views of submission and authority. I'm more traditional, and he's more egalitarian - figure that one out.
Oh, he's not emasculated...oh that's DEFINITLY not him. In fact, he is a rather good leader and has no problem taking a role of authority.
No, he happens to like an intelligent woman...and to him, the role of submission is a complete waste of her intelligence.
Me, I didn't think submission came at the cost of my intelligence. But he seemed to think so and he was against it. So, is it possible for an intelligent woman to benefit a marriage with her intelligence if she is truly being submissive? Or is it up to the husband (and a demonstration of his true leadership) to take into account his wife's intelligence when making a decision that affects them both?
