According to Felicity, marriage is not a workplace where roles are clear and usually strictly assigned. She maintained that she reveres her boss at work because he pays her, but her husband should not expect the same treatment.

"The reality is that, within any relationship, there should be equal respect. Each of you should respect the other. The workplace has a clear hierarchy. I don't believe that there should be a hierarchy in marriage.You are equal partners."

For Felicity Nelson, it's either a man willingly walks the talk with her or goes the path of separation.

Two captains steering a ship mentality. It has never worked. Is she suggesting we can equally have two presidents in a country at the same time? These are just fantasies of a spoiled woman. Real women/wives will vehemently disagree with her.

She said she doesn't believe in something. If you believe in it, good for you! I believe in equal partnership too and it's what I practice in my home. If you believe in anything else, it's a free world, do you, state your beliefs too without the name-calling and insults.
