Who is the "head" of your house?

I know nowadays we are all equal and make desicions along with our DH, but in most couples there is someone who is stronger and can be the "boss" of the house without that being a bad thing, they just have the last say in most matters.

That used to be me in our house but now it's my DH. I'm really glad because I like how strong he has become (because of some situations) and how manly he handles everything!

  • My DH is the boss "on paper." But I technically do the decision making. And that is not a bad thing because my DH is so carefree and calm about everything so that's when I step in to make the rational decisions.

  • My husband works and I take care of the house, kids, and pays bills. He tells people all the time that I'm the boss lol but I don't really like looking at it that way..we both work equally as hard.

  • Neither of us... We both have our own lives that we make our own choices for, and for those choices that affect the family, we make them together.

  • DH is the 'head' of the house, but I am the 'heart' of the house. I'd rather not be the captain of the ship, I'd much prefer being the mother of the captain of the ship. =)

  • As far as the "House" I am boss. I run the house and he works. When the kids are older and I go back to work it will be split more I suppose, but for now I'm the queen of the castle LOL
