    See poll.

    The majority of couples we know the wife definitely seem to wear the pants. The majority of them are in debt. Coincidence?

    Pants have two legs. I take fiscal issues and she takes social issues.

    Depends on the topic. Finances? I have the final say usually.

    Kids? Her usually.

    My wife and I make a great team. We both have our strengths & weaknesses, and we realize this.

    We both do a great job of wearing the pants and it seems to work very well.

    I'll check with Mrs OMC, but I believe I do. Seriously, when it's major stuff, we put our heads together and make smart decisions (mostly, hell, it's been damn near 30 years, we've hosed a few up!) We've seen plenty of other dumb@$$ couples, wandering around oblivious, wondering what keeps happening to them, we don't need to make every mistake first hand...

    Since live in different states we each pretty much have to take charge of what goes on where we live.

    My wife will not take my nuts out of her purse. Does this mean she wears the pants?

    I'm in a partnership. We decide important issues together.

    We have been married for just over 51 years. I am very happy to say we both wear the pants in our relationship.

    I wonder why a ship only has one captain.
    The male should make most of the decisions while giving the female the illusion she is.

    None of the above...my Boss/Employer wears the pants in my family. He/They make the demands and I comply unless I am willing to lose my livelihood, the very food I eat, and the ability to put Healthcare on the table at less than $1000 a month.

    Sorry to be a downer. I work for food and my Boss runs my Life. No unreasonable request refused on penalty of starvation and/or death and forfeiting everything I have worked for for 42 years.

    Yes, I would definitely say so. And if that is the case, you are definitely doomed!
    That said, we both do in my household. Each of us has equal power and respect. Until the rest of married couples come to this conclusion, they are doomed for failure.
