  • neither. we are pretty equal . depends on what is going on. i take the background position when it is something hubby is more knowledgeable about and vice versa

  • i'd like to say we're equal (idk why..), but its usually me that makes the majority of the decisions, day to day. he makes the 'big' financial decisions simply because he's got a head for business, and i've got the bod for sin.

  • It's equal. I get things my way sometimes but so does he. Neither of us have more say so then the other, I'm feisty and I don't like to be told what to do and feel like a maid and I respect him by not making him feel like this either. It's worked for us. We share the work and taking care of our kids as well as cleaning and cooking. I love it. I'm not old fashioned and I like it.

  • I make almost all of the decisions running the house hold, whether it's the grocery list or our weekend activities.

  • I would say that I am more vocal about the decisions that I make, but if he has an opinion he voices it.

  • Neither. We have open communication, no one is superior here.

  • he makes the decisions for the business we own, i make them for the household stuff (what to buy from the store, what goes where) and share the ones regarding the kids and money. i make most of the decisions for the kids, than ask if he is ok with them, he does the same with the money.

  • Well, it's a power struggle here, but I'd say I have more say. He'd say he just lets me think I do.
