and ask for permission on if I want to do something in the house with av stuff.
Consulting for concurrence is not asking for permission
As several have said, and I would guess you have read, alot of guys agree with me on this. I dont know why you people hand over your control to a woman.
Handing over control would be saying "you decide what we get", effectively providing blanket HAF the same way you seem to have been provided blanket WAF
You can love and respect without submitting.
Without blanket permission (which is no different than individual decision permission, other than speeding up the whole process, and obviously seems to give you a feeling of power)...
...failing to consult is not showing respect.
So you reality is either:
a) you consulted in advance, and effectively got blanket WAF for all decisions in the HT space, or
b) you do whatever you want and don't care what your partner thinks, and therefore do not respect
