“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”- Anais Nin
Hello all. Welcome back to The Forum -- Disciplined Husbands & Disciplinary Wives. Our weekly gathering of men and women participating, or interested in participating, in Domestic Discipline and/or Female Led Relationships. I hope you all had a great week.
A week or so ago, someone brought up the possibility that some of the comments posted on this blog are fictional. Could be. I have no idea whether any particular comment is wholly true, mostly true or not at all true. I also don't really care that much, as long as they are on topic. Some of the best stories on the old Disciplinary Wives Club website were fiction, but they illustrated what a DD relationship could be and, in doing, served an inspirational purpose. Fictional or not, they provided ideas and guideposts.
Domestic Discipline and FLR relationships seldom start wholly formed. Instead, one party proposes it to the other. They talk, they plan, they experiment. Hopefully, things move forward, perhaps not always smoothly, but forward nonetheless. But, it's probably inevitable that real life, with all its distractions and compromises, doesn't always match up to the parties' ideal desires, goals and dreams.
Assuming that is the case for most of us who are trying to construct real DD and FLR relationships, what is the gap between your fantasy and your reality? What would that "ideal" DD relationship and your role in it look like? More discipline and consequences? A more strict spouse? What role would you and your spouse play if you could make your DD or FLR all you want it to be? And, what would you be willing to do differently or act differently to make it happen.
This topic comes from Anna, who has become one of our only active Disciplinary Wife commenters the last few weeks. Marisa, Holly, Merry and others . . . I hope you all are still with us and merely caught up in the busyness of life.
I hope you all have a great week. If you are new to our Forum, please take a moment to visit our Guestbook (tab above) and tell us a little about your DD or FLR relationship.
