It's funny you mention that the "aspects of DD are being portrayed on popular television shows." From I Love Lucy to, I Dream of Jeanie, and Big Bang Theory, there is a teenie-bopper show on Nickelodeon called Victorious I saw not too long ago where this one character, Jade, who always has a bad attitude. She was saying something nasty or did something nasty to another character, and her boyfriend sent her to time-out. I was cracking up--an adult woman laughing at a kid's show. Anyway, the concept seems to be gaining in popularity. Of course I think there will always be raised eyebrows if it should be mentioned in front of some.

Anyway, we're very new to this. I found you and your wife's blog back in August, brought the idea to my husband, who's initial reaction was, you guessed it, "why do we need something like that?" But he agreed, but it never quite "took," if you know what I mean. I mentioned it again in December, and again he agreed that it would be a good thing. I just don't think he quite knows how to begin? It's daunting, I know he's a bit intimidated. Whenever I really think about it (which is often), I become intimidated too.

Anyway, sorry for the novel I just left. You just jogged my memory about the show. ;) Have a great day!

Tried to ask this a few days ago so I am sorry if this posted someplace and I just can't find it. I'll make it shorter than last time though. I have a concern as I am researching DD to see if this will be a dynamic that could be beneficial to our 22 year marriage. We are a happy couple - we do not yell at each other, rarely argue, and in general we get through the day just fine. There are areas that I think I can improve upon to be a much better wife however - I procrastinate, I can be lazy about housework, I am not good at communicating difficult emotions (sad, unhappy, frustrated etc) so I defintely distance myself. I could also take better care of myself with some effort. My fear? If we start a DD relationship, how do we keep our relationship from becoming a parent/child one? I can't help but to feel as though I should be self-motivated to do what is right simply because it is right for our marriage. And yet, I don't. I truly mean no disrespect. This is a huge fear of mine. Any thoughts?
