non-decision making hubby-

Not mad, but just curious..............
Does any one else's hubby do this?
When I bring up a subject that needs to be decided, he'll puff up like a rooster, have a few things to say about it, then tells me-
"it's up to you.........."

I don't know if it's because he makes so many decisions at work that he doesn't want to make many at home, or maybe he just thinks I'm better at it.
He's claimed from time to time that it's because I don't like way he decides stuff- not true all the time, but yeah- I sometimes think he made a bad call.
and he accuses me of being passive aggressive!
I think it's a case of the pot calling the kettle black!

anyone else have a hubby that does this?

  • Me and the SO RARELY decide on anything together. It's usually an I dunno what do you think we say back and forth for about an hour. And I can be so vague sometimes it drives him nuts and when I do make decisions hardly evre do we go through with them and then do what he wants. Well, we do do what I want eventually just not when I want to get it done. I'm impatient.
