Defer to him as much as you can.
A friend asks if you can come over tonight? Tell her you have to ask him.
A salesman wants to know if you want to buy that product today? Tell him you have to ask your man.
You want to buy something? Ask your man if you can afford it.
When you defer to him, you’re allowing him the opportunity to create reality out of the vision he has for the relationship and, believe it or not, he does have a vision.
Besides, deferring to your man on even the smallest issues will make him feel needed and will make you feel like he’s in control of your universe – and that lowers your stress level.
Don’t fool yourself into the common girl-trap of “I don’t want to bother him.” He absolutely loves to be asked these kinds of questions. You’re handing more control of your life over to him every time you ask his permission for something. You’ll find your man always, always, always has time for more control.
Defer to him. You’ll both be happier.
