I'm not going to write a novel about what "a submissive" is or is not. What I will focus more on is what my wife is and she's submissive. There is a difference. There's "a submissive" and there's "submissive". My wife is not a submissive but instead submissive. She sees and recognizes me as the Head of the house and herself as submissive to my authority. Does that make sense?
