We all know of a woman who is so afraid of their boyfriend or husband that you even wonder how they ended up together in the first place. Like, how do you love someone who you are constantly afraid of? You are supposed to be friends with your partner and you cannot be afraid of your friend.

Or maybe we can blame it on our upbringing? You know, how you saw your mommy behaving towards your daddy and such things. But that’s then and we are a different generation. A generation where women know what is good for them and should ask for it without fear.
