Just as preparations for their wedding go forward, Jeannie Mai revealed more about her relationship to Jeezy and how she envisions the relationship moving forward. Both stars are juggling their professional careers with their personal lives, and Jeannie is looking to tone it down a bit.
Speaking on The Real, Jeannie mentioned that in their personal lives she plans to submit to Jeezy- she has to make so many decisions daily in her career, that she's looking forward to relinquishing some of that stress entirely.
"So, I'm gonna say right here, that I, Jeannie Mai, going into my marriage—I want to submit to my man," said Jeannie Mai. "When I hear this definition...submitting has a negative connotation. It means that you are less important, you are lower than that person that you're submitting to. It usually can be like, you know, referenced as somebody who works lower than you and that's not what I'm referring to here."
Mai also mentioned that growing up, her strong willed Mom argued with her Father constantly, which ended up hurting their overall relationship. Jeannie doesn't want that in her own life.
"I'm a very dominant woman. I own my business, I lead my teams, I played my own manager, my own publicist, my own lawyer when I didn't have money to have those people," she explained. "So, I make the decisions in my life. When I come home, I like the idea that my man leads us. That doesn't mean that in this case, Jay makes all the decisions for us... He formulates it with our overall vision, and he leads us and I like to submit to that."
"I don’t want to lead in our household and in our marriage," Jeannie added. "I want him to lead, and I have all the essence of what I bring as a wife to make that decision, but that I love that my husband will be the man that leads. I like that structure in a marriage and I look forward to that because girls—it’s tiring being the boss of me. It’s tiring leading all the time in my life."
