  • My man wears the pants and I wear the skirt! =)

    He's the big breadwinner, he makes and handles the bills and decisions (w/ my input), he decides where we go for dates. He carries heavy things, he drives the car when we go places, he protects me. I love the traditional roles and love being taken care of like that.

    When it comes to chores, all is equal. And he actually likes doing the dishes!

  • I feel that my husband and I wear the pants equally. We have an extra large pair that we both can wear! He makes certain decisions (with my input) and I make others (with his input). It works out very well.

  • its equal here in millerland. most 'decisions' are small, fortunately, so whoever calls it first, is usually what we go with. if there's huge decisions, concerning finances/future/health, i usually let him decide, since that is his strenght. paint colors? plants? dinner? luxury items?

  • Even if I don't treat my hubby like a dog, I do wear the pants. He works, brings home the money, but I handle pretty much everything. He always tells me that if he didn't have me, everything would fall apart and how thankful he is that I can handle it all :)

  • Probably my husband. He has more experience in the world but the thing is he listens to me and remembers what I've told him. He considers my feelings and how his decisions would impact our family. It amazes me.

    As for Jon and Kate, I think he was laid off his job like many people are and was comfortable letting Kate take care of everything. I could never stand to be with a weak and lazy man like him.

  • We tend to just agree. I take the lead in the finances, out of necessity. If I didn't, we'd have every gaming system known to man, but no roof to sleep under.
