Miranda Kerr, Orlando Bloom

“I am quite dominant in my career, so what really works for me when I come home, is to relax more into the feminine side. If you’re really an alpha female, you don’t allow [your partner] to have the space to feel like the man in the relationship. Maybe I am too traditional, but men feel important when you ask for their help, instead of thinking you can do it all on your own. My mistake in my relationships has been to feel that I can do it all on my own: I don’t need a man. That is definitely a mistake. Women generally want to feel loved and appreciated. It’s something that I am working on every day, trust me! It’s a challenge for me to do that.”

––Miranda Kerr has got a net worth of $12 million and is “dominant” in her career, but when it comes to her marriage to Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr told Net-a-Porter’s online magazine The Edit she takes a more submissive route. Just a few months ago, pro volleyball player Gabrielle Reece also said that she let her husband Laird Hamilton be the leader in their relationship and cited the same reasons as Kerr. It makes me wonder if there’s a secret society of wealthy, famous wives who don’t fight to wear the pants at home. If it works for them, more power to them. I’m all about each couple choosing how they want to operate rather than following society’s prescriptions, even if it means following traditional gender roles. I’m not loving the gender essentialism (men are like this! women are like that!) in Miranda Kerr’s quote, but hey, she’s a lingerie model, not a gender studies scholar.
