I've actually never heard this term "henpecked"...so I'm not sure how to respond. But I think such relationships are immature. A marriage is a partnership where two people respect and love one another and are friends to each other, first and foremost...so having one giving in to the other for fear of quarrel is not my idea of a partnership. If you have a problem, the two of you should be able to sit down together and work it out calmly. If you can't do that, why get married in the first place?
