Basic Trope: A man who submits to a domineering wife.
Straight: Alice makes all the major household decisions and runs the household with little or no input from Bob. For his part, Bob always caves to Alice's decisions, even if he doesn't agree with them.
Alice is quiet and submissive only makes requests not give orders.
Alice seems to make most of the decisions simply because the things she desires are things that Bob either doesn't care about or agrees with Alice on. In return the few things Bob actually insists on he usually gets.
Alice is a Manic Pixie Dream Girl who leads Bob on a roller-coaster of a life. Bob is an easy-going fellow who is content to passively enjoy Alice's ideas. Bob does what Alice says not because she is domineering or he is weak willed, but because he thinks it fun.
Alice has already booked the trip to Paris.
Alice controls Bob through passive-aggressive behavior (such as threatening to leave, threatening suicide, fake tears, or the Lysistrata Gambit) or through Hint Dropping.
