What our MAG members say

Finances will limit a mans ability to do much he will be dependent on his mate for even his most basic needs and free time meaning the Time outside of work time these have a very direct effect on the other three first of all I my mate keeps me on a very tight budget during the free time I'm allowed I won't be able to do anything she does not aprove of which is why this lifestyle appeals to me I want my mate to be happy with me having constraints on my free time will give me time to take care of chores and may put my mate in a state of mind where sex is permissible as far as life direction not being able to engage with friends will have an effect on life direction

The big 2 Food Groups are Finances and Free Time. The others pretty much all depend on having the money and time for them. In our household responsibility for Free Time is 50/50 and responsibility for budgeting belongs to the husband. Periodically we sit down together and look at what we have written in our pen-and-ink calendars, and look for openings to do enjoyable things together. We each have a number of interests outside the home which do not involve the other, but we need to coordinate the use of our one shared vehicle. The money is treated as one common pot, with the husband responsible for paying all the bills, making all transfers in and out of savings and the long-term investments, preparing the taxes for joint filing, etc. The husband keeps the wife posted on what is available in savings for travel, vehicle replacement, home improvement, medical out-of-pocket, dental out-of-pocket gifting, and the unexpected. As far as I am aware, we are using these mechanisms positively... it works for us. We generally only buy when we have cash available. When we married the husband paid off the wife's mortgage, and the house was retitled in both names. So basically we are debt-free and we pay-as-we-go.

The devotion of one's life to the Lady. Also the man and the woman must think in the same direction to fulfil the relationship. Also the woman has to think through how she is most effectively going to dominate the man.

Philipt These (free time and finances) are the most important aspects of the relationship. If these are negotiated the others will fall into place naturally

Finances and free time. These are the aspects of a relationship that signify true control because they incorporate everything else. A women must make a deceleration of what she desires within these two areas while a man must ask the woman, but its important for both partners to understand how these two aspects are distributed to avoid issues.

The two major controlling food groups finances and free time depend on each other. Most financial decisions can either make or break a relationship, due to the stress of have and have nots. People cannot for the most part have free time activities without money. Not saying money dictates our happiness but it helps in free time activities. People can easily be motivated by having and not having money. So trusting must we b with each other with finances. Quality of free time does not center around money but does dictate how we spend our time. People who work and no play have a stronger tendencies to self destruct. Free time is good for our self worth, joy and inner peace. Trusting her to lead in finances also means trusting her in our free time. It is a great tradeoff as she manages our life towards a better life direction.

Finances and free time control all other groups as none would be possible without time and money.

The big two food groups of Finances and Free time lead or affect the other three food groups. They can be used positively by guiding the overall relationship and preventing anxiety and friction over decision making.

Free Time and Finance - I think communication is vital here. There are so many facets to things like finance, relationships with friends through free time and what really works best, especially if you bring children into it

Finance and personal time are key factors because her control on these things insure he belongs to her and not himself. His identity is her property.

The two main groups are free time and Finances. If a man gives control of these two areas to the women it means she has the main control over the relationship and he has given up on the norm for her and the benefit of the relationship.

Finances and Free Time. Finances control us in terms of what we buy and invest in, how we handle our money, and what kind of lifestyle we lead. Free Time is about who we are when our responsibilities are behind us and we can follow our desires. These can be used positively when we are disciplined in both areas.

I believe that the big two would be Direction and sexual control so that the woman is always totally satisfied sexually.If the woman is always totally satisfied sexually,everything else will fall into place. If the woman is not totally satisfied sexually,nothing will work. - edited by staff [reason: you are wrong] - read the book - the big two are free time and finance.

Finance and free time management. These effect every other one as they need resources either in time or money.

The big 2 food groups are Life direction and Finances . Its upto the leader to decide how they want their life to be headed . She may take the inputs of her man however she will be the ultimate decision maker . A key element to ensure a great future is finances and hence it becomes extremely critical how well the finances are managed .

Most everyone here has noted Finances and Time, but the important fact here, if you are with an intelligent, strong minded woman, what she considers the most important.

In reply to SusanM88 2015-05-07 12:52:03 "From my experience most women don`t do that well with finances" : In my experience most women that I know who are single or widowed have no problem managing their finances. Is it a generational thing? In any relationship there will be one partner who makes sure the bills are paid on time even if there is discussion and agreement on how the money is spent.

Money is important but time is most important. You camn always work to make more money, but you can't replace time.
Author: Holdmenow 2015-04-12 18:00:29   
If feel there is only one food group and one person in control. You could say finance, or appointments. Major decisions or sex. Still should be all up to one person.
