  • As the family organizer, (incl doing the bills) I have to say it's me. Any time a business has to be dealt with, my husb hands the phone to me b/c he knows I wont pull any punches! (I'm not rude, do not yell- but am firm & wont back down!)

  • I mostly am but I try not to exert dominance often, if that makes any sense. It's just a personality thing--I am more take charge, more impatient, more decisive than he is. He's introverted and compliant and takes forever to make choices. I try really hard to maintain balance though and not let my personality overpower his. I always consult him on family decisions so he doesn't feel like I'm calling all the shots.

  • I will say I usually get what I want. BUT when we're dicussing something important to our lives we usally agree but if he say No then its No.

    I would say we're equally dominant thats why we butt heads so much. Usually that doesn't work for couples but it works for us.

  • honestly he is, but in some cases it depends on the situation. In some cases I'm the more dominant if its something I feel really strongly or have more knowledge about
