Definition - What does Femdom Marriage mean?

A femdom marriage is a heterosexual marriage where the wife dominates her submissive husband. She is the leader and principle decision maker, while her husband obeys and complies with her rulings.

A femdom marriage is a type of female led relationship. It is also sometimes called a female led marriage or wife led marriage.

Kinkly explains Femdom Marriage

A femdom marriage subverts the traditional marriage, where husbands usually dominate. It’s typically up to the female to make decisions about social interactions, household finances, division of household labor, and sexual activity. Orgasm control, the wearing of male chastity belts, and cuckold arrangements are common ways a dominant wife can show her dominance over sexual matters. As well as making decisions for the couple, a wife in a femdom marriage will typically make decisions for her husband about his dress, behavior, and responsibilities. She is also entitled to hand out punishments should her husband not meet her expectations.

Many men find being dominated in a femdom marriage arousing. Some appreciate having an authority figure in their lives. Women also enjoy having greater control than they would in a traditional marriage, both inside and outside the bedroom.

A femdom marriage may start as a traditional marriage and evolve over time or always exist as a femdom marriage. Unlike many forms of power exchange, a femdom marriage is usually a 24/7 arrangement. It can be difficult for both parties to adjust to this style of relationship, but training programs like The Ten can provide a good framework for willing couples.

As with other forms of power exchange, a femdom marriage should be consensual for both parties. Anecdotal evidence suggests these marriages are most often initiated by men. It’s important to communicate about what both parties want from the relationship, as well as expectations. They should negotiate in which ways the wife will dominate her husband and whether there are any hard limits.
