A recent online survey in China has found that husbands in Shanghai are the most “henpecked” in the country. The findings created quite a stir on social media, with people debating whether being “henpecked” implied that the men were afraid of their wives or whether it was more about respect. Some deem that it is not henpecked, but showing respect and love for women. For instance, some husbands always compromise first when there are quarrels, and this is a reflection of love, not henpecked. However, others argue that so-called respect and love are just an excuse for fear.

What do you think of henpecked husbands? Are there such husbands in western countries?

I think they are not afraid of their wives, only because of love and respect.

Wives should be submissive to their husbands, period.
That is in the wedding vow.
