I got the galaxy tab 9+ and I gave my husband my galaxy tab 7+. I was able to delete or log out my account from the tab 7+, the problem is I can't removed me as an administrator and my husband can't seem to have full control of the tab. How do I remove myself as the administrator?

Did you attempt to factory reset the tablet yet? This should theoretically remove all accounts from the device. You might have to manually remove the tab from within your Samsung/Google account settings online as well.

I asked that same question and nobody responded. Apparently the only way to do it is a reset? I'll never get my girlfriend to use it if she has to enter all of her passwords and applications again. I guess she will get a iPad for Christmas.
