    submission and obedience, I guess :) Do you think that's why I'm not married?

    Maybe if I just learned to "do" femininity better.

      Been married 24 years.  It all depends on the quality of your mate.

      My dogs think I'm smart and pretty.

        and we're equal partners in the Work -- right now, Mr. Scribe is able to cope with his ill mother better than I can, but I have a better head for things like numbers and logistics. A good marriage shouldn't be about dominant/submissive (unless both parties are interested in that sort of thing), but rather about both partners using their individual skills to build a synergistic relationship where the whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts.
