“I like Monica to dress feminine”, ジョンは言った, explaining that “any man that’s been with a woman knows they don’t know what the heck to wear.”
ジョン, a self described ‘alpha-male’ who keeps his home office full of toy trucks and action figures insists that they both love the way their marriage works.
As the man of the house, he’s able to sleep with other women, besides Monica, if his heart desires.
彼は言った: “It’s a luxury I have that most guys wish they had, just because of genetic programming.
“If you look at other mammals typically the alpha-male gets to bang all the females.”
John reckons his wondering eye makes for a more relaxed relationship and even makes him a better husband.
“There’s nothing in my life that I desire that I can’t have.” 彼が追加した.
これにもかかわらず, Monica says she loves being a traditional housewife because it’s her “love language.”
“It’s not like I’m a hopeless little girl, それについてではありません, It’s just that he’s assertive and I like that in a man,” 彼女は説明した.
Monica does almost everything for John, even rushing home to make him food when she’s out with her friends.
Her subservient attitude was drilled into her her youth: “My mum told me, ‘be pretty and in good shape because nobody wants a fat and ugly wife’.”
However some of Monica’s friends don’t agree with the way the duo operate, “I’ve had childhood friends straight out telling me that I’d lost my dignity as a woman,” 彼女は告白した.
But Monica says she just wants to keep her husband happy, and being at his beck and call is how she achieves that.
“I would say that 98 per cent of my day revolves around my husband, 私が大好きな,” 彼女は言いました, donning an apron in the couples kitchen.
