My husband and I have the exact relationship you describe. I think that is the very best expression of feminine and masculine essences. It's a wonderful dance that brings out the best in each partner. I inspire him to be his best and he creates the very best circumstances for me to relax and radiate my femininity.
This world is in desperate need of this dynamic. The psuedo-feminist movement has discouraged each gender from finding their true bliss by encouraging women to behave masculine and then complaining as men have become increasingly apathetic and more juvenile. It's unnatural and destructive to both genders. There is a way to be equally powerful in society and still maintain the integrity of our true essences.
Women do NOT want to be like men, but we try and try, and feel unfulfilled and tired. Men do not want to be lazy. It makes them their worst selves. A man wants to be inspired and engaged in a calling to serve his woman because she is so special to him. If everyone could find this there would be peace in the world! But we all first have to tap into what we really want inside - - our true essence - - and then embrace that.
