Male Submissive Vow of Obedience

In the distant past, a woman's marriage vows often included a Vow of Obedience. Today, women mostly reject this vow and consider it obsolete. Perhaps in this age of increasingly powerful women and often passive men, the vow should be taken by the husband. Could a male be effective and happy in the submissive role of a wife's wife?
Please indicate which of the following attributes YOU would include in a male submissive's Vow of Obedience. Check all that apply and ignore inappropriate suggestions.
a written tribute to the superiority of women
a written point-by-point justification of his wife's personal superiority (Top 10 reasons she is loved)
a written statement surrendering any authority he may possess (imagined or otherwise)
a written promise of unconditional and dutiful submission and obedience
a written request for release from any requirement to perform illegal or immoral acts
a written and binding commitment to forever remain faithful to his wife and his Vow of Obedience
With which one of the following statements do you most agree?
A man willing to take the Vow of Obedience should do so privately, with only his wife present.
It would be fitting for him to take his Vow of Obedience in a public ceremony.
Only close friends and family members should witness the ceremony.
True or False: Even if his superior is capable of defending herself against unfriendly threats, the submissive male must continue to be her first line of defense. His submission does not free him from this responsibility.
Taking the Vow of Obedience may render the male responsible for tasks his superior assigns, including housekeeping duties. Which of the following would you include?
childcare: feed, dress, supervise, transport, change diapers
laundry: gather, sort, wash, dry, iron, fold, put away
delicates: hand-wash lingerie/hosiery, rinse in clean cold water, roll between towels, lay flat to dry
dishes: clear, wash/rinse or load/unload diswasher, scrub pots and pans, store

Would you have the submissive male undertake 'traditional' male tasks such as washing/vacuuming the car, yard maintenance and fix-ups?
Of course, all menial tasks will be his.
No, we'd hire someone to do those jobs.
How would you describe a man who has taken a Vow of Obedience to his wife? (Check all that apply)

How should hubby be attired for the vow-taking ceremony (you may select more than one)?
