I know you wanted to stop the thread, but I think more might have to be made clear, unless Rachel decides to lock the thread.

Hence, some of the advice you were given may have been interpreted as judgmental. You also mentioned that you wanted honest opinions and that may have caused people to be more on the frank side.
No, we don't know you or your husband and may have misunderstood the situation. If so, I apologize. This can happen on a forum and has happened here since we can't see faces or hear voices. We don't intend to judge; just to offer encouragement, suggestions and advice if requested. This is a very warm and welcoming forum (otherwise so many of us wouldn't have stayed for so many years).
I would never suggest that a wife doesn't have input in situations in the marriage. Marriage is a joint effort, but, biblically, someone has to be the head. That doesn't mean that the wife is lower or less.
