Do you prefer a henpecked husband?

I don't like my husband to be henpecked. He should be mature enough to keep his own view or opinion. But definitely I want him to be understanding and caring. And ofcourse, I want him to love me. Love and understanding only make a relationship stronger. What about you all?

I do agree with you and my husband is far from being henpecked. You definetly need a husband with some back bone in order to love and cherish him. How can you cherish someone that cant think for himself. I cant anyway. We all need someone who can stand up to anything for us.

Since you ask this, as the possible "husband" I really would not like to be henpecked. I think it is very possible to be compassionate and empathetic without becoming someone who has no opinions at all. I think it is often when people are very insecure with themselves that they feel the need to try to control others (e.g. henpeck), and keep after them to "do this" and "do that" and "be that way." Maybe I am an idealist with love, but I believe that you should choose a person you don't feel it necessary to change and always tell what to do... because they already ARE what you want. Just my opinion, of course. :-)

I want my partner to be my equal. I would not tolerate a man who told me what to do, or tried to boss me around, but I woudn't want one who was hen-pecked either! A relationship is about loving trustig, caring and sharing, and you shoud be equal to do that!

No, I do not have nor would I have a "henpecked" husband. Old LB (Lazy Bum), my husband, is eagle pecked, which I assure you is much more humiliating than being "henpecked". If he does not like it, he can start by not being so lazy.

I do not think that I am a henpicked husband. My wife and I are very close and think about things pretty much the same way. We are both loving, affectionate people.

Yes, love and understanding should be the priority to your relation with your spouse.

No my husband wanted to be like this, but it was too exhausting for me. I might as well as have a child as to have a henpecked husband. He is no longer my husband because he would not do or think for himself. I do have a child and he has more backbone than my ex.

hi friend, I dont really know what to tell you, he should be understanding and caring, no matter what if he loves you, you should be "wanted" him to love you, he needs to feel that love for you, otherwise it is pointless, that is something you need to ask him, I am sure he loves you, if you have doubet, you should be able to tell if he does or not by the way he acts. I think the most important part of the relastionship is commucation and understanding, than trust.

No-one should be henpecked or dominated, marriage is just two people sharing a live, they should try and get on and be happy for the time they have together, just to be happy.
