  • I think we share the pants, there are some decisions I don't like to make and some he doesn't so it works out.

  • We both always discuss big decisions and seem to always agree. If not, compromise comes into play. I know what he will think when I am making decisions on my own. He knows what I will think when making decisions on his own.

  • We both are mature adults and together run our family. I wouldn't want my husband to be in charge nor would I want to be his mom and be in charge. We have been married 25 years and have been happy the entire time cooperation works for us.

  • We both do.

  • Our relationship was like that and we've been working to change it. I loved getting my way but it really sucked to have a man who was so indecisive and basically not know how to make a decision. Besides he should be the head of the house, that's what the bible says and we are trying to come back to that. Problem is that I grew up with a single mother and when she did marry it was still that way because we were her children so ultimately the decisions were up to her.
    now we're a little more balanced. I'm the one with the kids mostly so I usually lead what's happening there. But he has become a much more confidant man who I admire much more.
