Jeezy and Jeannie Mai are both very successful. But when it comes to who's going to wear the pants in their marriage, there isn't going to be much of a question.
Mai explains why:
Grown Folk Talk! Jeannie Mai From 'The Real' Says She Wants To Be A Submissive Wife In A Marriage With Jeezy. pic.twitter.com/pSQhYjz1A5— Street Talk LDN (@StreetTalkLDN) October 9, 2020
"I want to submit to my man. When I hear this definition ... submitting has a negative connotation. It means that you are less important, you are lower than that person that you're submitting to. It usually can be like, you know, referenced as somebody who works lower than you, and that's not what I'm referring to here."
"I'm a very dominant woman. I own my business," she continued. "I lead my teams, I played my own manager, my own publicist, my own lawyer when I didn't have money to have those people. "So, I make the decisions in my life. When I come home, I like the idea that my man leads us."
Jeannie got some social media pushback for her traditional views on gender roles, so she further explained herself.
"Girl, I am 41. I don’t care what kind of pushback I get from other women out there," said Jeannie. "This is my life and, coming out of divorce and also making a major decision to marry again after being blessed to fall in love and finding such a beautiful person, I want to be very clear and open about how our life can be so that we make sure that our vision is aligned and that we both are empathetic to each other and know that this is the structure we’re going into. I think the biggest mistake that you can make is not communicating what you want and not setting it up for a win. Jay is my king so I want him to understand what I look forward to."
