Well Chris, since you are not my significant other, I'm going to feel free to go ahead and criticize you for rolling out about the most clichéd instance of casual sexism.
I -- and all of the women I know -- would not consider any relationship where one party routinely cowed the other into submissive agreement to be in any way healthy or desirable.
Perpetuating the old cliché about wives being controlling nags is not cute and funny. Its offensive.
