What our MAG members say

Yes they can. Perhaps one person is a vegetarian for example, and this is a deep ethical choice that they have made. By setting this limit, any qualms are removed in the other aspects of diet.

You have some free spending money but will not govern how the majority of the money is spent in the relationship. She will make the larger money decisions. She may give you some spending money for example a night out with friends.

It means although the woman has the say the man will be advised and things are discussed perhaps this is best as starting point but it still leaves room for drama and strife because she does not have full authority once full authority is established the possibility for that is lessened

It means that generally things are controlled, in my case i m allowed to spent neccessary Money for fuel, buying groceries, get stuff for the Kids and so on when ist neccesary or ordered. I have to deliver the receipt for each Cent spent to her for checking i didn t buy any unneccesary stuff, which i don t do, as it would only result in shifting my release date, or loose any other privilege.

Authority to decide may be limited for a period of time or for some amount. For example the manager/leader in the Financial food group may personally pay all the bills and budget for all expenses, but the dependent partner may have a certain amount allowed as unaccountable, or "walking around" money. So in that sense the control of the manager/leader is limited... it does not extend to the unaccountable money. In a sense the dependent spouse has limited authority in this case, to spend any way he likes, up to the allowed amount per month. It makes control more palatable to the manager/leader because she does not need to micro-manage every penny spent. It make control more palatable to the dependent spouse, because he can act on his own impulse sometimes, without having to explain.

Limiting restricts the capacity for careful exploration of an FLR, for example he may be reticent to be caned without knowing the potential pleasure. The woman may not feel too happy not being able to be as assertive as she would like.

By limiting you are demonstrating control. By limiting a partner you are actually asserting more control than if you weren't.

The authority is understood but the pleasure of being put in charge of areas of food groups builds confidence in the FLR relationship. By her allowing some items to be handled by her submissive build confidence in the FLR relationship. It gives her the opportunity to watch and see if the relationship is true. As her confidence is affirmed by the confidence of her submissive the relationship moves forward into the direction with correct understanding and thought. So the limited control granted by her ids a training tool used to gain her confidence as the relationship grows and expands. Full FLR relationship can only grow to full potential when her confidence in her submissive grows.

I think 'limited' authority is about being delegated with and accepting responsibility to carry out a task(s) within an agreed framework. The framework defines the limits.

I don't think this is detrimental if you are under level 4 for example. If you have kids, you can't have a situation where you cannnot do things with them because your finances are so tightly controlled that your partner is at work, unreachable and you have no funds. You need to be practical and if you really do want strict control then the controller must be on hand at all times in case something is required so the responsibility is enormous

DorianGrey @ DorianGrey Are you answering a diferent question?

Yes, it allows comfort zones to be established. Although she can break them, her knowing them helps her respect your sub so he can be more obedient as the relatioship progresses.

By discussion one can look at all the 5 food groups analyse them and agree levels of control or agreements.One can set limits for the manager and later discuss and vary them as felt required as the relationship develops.It should help your partner trust you more and feel more comfortable and confident in the relationship which is good for you in the end if you are happy with what you have agreed.

I suppose one could have limited control in some aspects of a FLR. It depends on the level. Limiting control can be good for those who prefer a lower level in some areas but may not be good for the more dominant and submissive.
Author: Ericthebritt 2016-08-21 02:03:17   
Ericthebritt Sorry Ericthebritt, I find this hard to understand. "I suppose" what are you trying to say? Perhaps you could re-frame your 'lower level' and subsequent statements within the level 1-4 context. Giving examples would help me to understand your opinion.

The lady should have total control over all food groups and with that comes the right to punish or take away anything that she want to.
Author: Jeffery 2016-03-04 20:35:49   
Jeffery I hope you will forgive me if I say yours' is a very simplistic interpretation Jeffery. Let's put this in a day to day situation. A fuse blow's on the washing machine when you are doing the laundry. You are competent to diagnose and fix this simple problem. Given the fact you have limited authority to undertake technical repairs. Would you seek to burden your leader with the fact "the washing machine is broken" Or get on and replace the fuse, letting her know later that you have acted within the authority given.

In my humble opinion , Limited authority is where a man doesn't have full control however his inputs are taken into account . If we take the example of Life direction , a man can provide his views however he final decision with be made by his leader - the woman . In case of finances too , he may not request for permission for each and everything , instead he will be provided an allowance and he can use it for genuine needs and at the end can submit the bills or justification .

This is actually a natural aspect of a busy Mmatriarchs life. In the past iI have been given full authority to act on Hher behalf in many ways from finance, to hosting, to child rearing etc... a busy Mmatriarch delegates many things , so this is a natural aspect of a dynamic FLR under a busy Mmatriarch. - edited by staff [reason: femdom camel case - this is NOT a fetish site -40 points, most of Steven4FLR offer femdom jargon]

Woman decides that the man should for instance take care of Budgeting for household, but does not have access to the Bank Account. Budgeting becomes the "limited" Finance authority delegated for the ease of woman's role in this area.

It places limits on how much power the woman has for that group. It makes control worse as any limits it saying I don't trust you.
Author: 1goodguy2u 2015-02-22 01:35:31   
1goodguy2u I have chosen to respectfully disagree with your interpretation. Your leader knows both strengths and weakness within Herself and Her chosen subjugate. Limited authority means I trust you to act in a capacity within your abilities and given guidelines.

limited authority may mean in the household she is the leader but outside they may appear as normal such as when family or friends are present. Also in public there limits to what they can do. I like the fact that deep down wether in public or not they both know who is in charge.

Limited authority means that the couple has set down some rules to govern the application of one food group or aspect of their lives. In FLR the female partner will usually demand control of the Free Time food group. But she may give limited authority to the male partner to work extra hours when requested without her specific ok because she knows that it is in the best interest of the couple’s finances. Overall she retains authority to object if the time away gets beyond what she is willing to accept. Limited authority is different from shared authority in that the partners pre agree on the limiting parameters.
