In my relationship (7years) I have always been the one who takes responsibility for keeping things running. I also sometimes feel that I wear the trousers in the relationship as he can be lazy and so I have to 'take charge'. However yesterday while having an argument with my husband he mentioned that a womens 'place' should always be below a man specialy if he is a nice bloke.

Now what can I do when he says that? How can I just be below him? Why because I am a women? Does anyone think this is right or am I making this worse then it is?
prev ?

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, no matter how daft.
How you deal with it is up to you. You can ignore it, or have a blazing row, or accept it, or break up, or whatever you feel appropriate.

It's just that to me is so offensive. How can he tell me I should be below him and be a nice little wifey cooking and cleaning when he cant be a proper 'man' by bringing the money home and taking care of that side of things. I do the lot, the woman and the man roll. He hasent got a right to even think that.
Seems to me you should be telling him that, not AB...
I think he means suD, that a woman's place is below a man - as in, say, the missionary position?!

Maybe he's just trying to be funny?
There's no such thing as equality in marriage, what that means individually only others can decide, Old Geezer's got it right.
Those men with experience prefer the woman above them ;)
exactly tambo - that's what I'm saying !!
Depends how experienced and for how long, somtimes from behind is better, at least you can read the paper whilst you're at it! ;-))
I couldn't agree more!
I always thought a relationship was about a partnership? Ie , you both have your stregth and weaknesses but neither of you is better than the other.
I must admit I absolutely hate the expression 'my other half' - have never used it and never will.

Trust me he did not mean it in a sexual way lol.

I know there is never 100% equality in any relationship but I still don't beleive for having a p*ssy instead of a c*ock I should be under a man, especialy when he does nothing to be above me...
if your 'parked' in the vacuum hose everton......dogging is for dogs!
Woman on top is fine by me ! Swinging from Chandeliers is OK too...

Yes it should be a partnership and I always try my best to keep it that way, we are both from a traditional portuguese background where women do everything and the man nothing. We are a young couple in our early twenties. And after the up bringing I had I never wanted to be like the mum used to be or his I wanted to share a life not be there to please my husband. The worse is he said he agreed with that and everything was fine even though I did the most. Only to tell me he things my place is below him 7 years later. It hurt and was very offensive.
I wouldn;'t want anyone swinging from my chandelier - it's French, expensive, unique & I'd be very unamused at someone even touching it... Mind you, I don't think the ceiling would hold....
I'm not quite sure what you mean there Tambo (spare me the details ;-)), i prefer the woman on top, last time it was the other way around I had to pay to get the ceiling skimmed!
