Exactly but the article quoted some woman as "submitting to her husband like it's 1959." Now, do what you like but do you have to use the word "submit"?

The #tradwife lodestar is Fascinating Womanhood. Written by Helen Andelin, an American Mormon mother of eight, the 1963 book argues that women should aspire to an ideal femininity, manipulate men with their ‘feminine charms’ and see wifely subordination as the foundation of a happy marriage. It quickly became known as ‘the book feminists love to hate’.
