    I’d love to say that it’s 50/50, but honestly, I think it’s me lol. I’m very decisive and also picky, whereas Fiance can be decisive, but would rather that people be happy.

    TBH– I think it is my husband. He is pretty opinionated, and I’m a little more go-with-the-flow. It works for us, and on big decisions we have thought out discussions, but on a day to day basis I think he makes most of the decisions.

    We’re fairly equal, so I voted 50/50.

    I think it’s me, he would probably say it’s me also. I am the more decisive one, I love to be in control. But I definitely turn to him for help with decisions as well 🙂

    I try to share the pants 50/50, but with my husband he’s pretty easy-going and if he doesn’t care about something, he just. doesn’t. care. and will literally refuse to take a side. I’ve almost given up trying to drag opinions out of him – the ones he has are strong, but far between. That said, when he does have an opinion, we are equals in decision-making.

    For example, we spent an hour in a food truck line yesterday where I was debating between two trucks, whether or not to get fries, and which burger toppings were better and he just didn’t care where or what we ate, so I couldn’t get him to tell me his preference on which truck. The man just didn’t have one!

    My Fi is military and is a take charge type of guy the majority of the time he does everything and he usually will give me whatever I want. We discuss major issues as a couple and make a decision.  50/50

    I also think its me…*eek*, I feel like that sounds terrible.


    I think its more because I need to be in control when it comes to bills being paid etc…so I take care of all the banking, bill paying, planning things.


    On our personal lives and relationship…we are 50/50

    He does.  We’ll discuss the big decisions together but the Fiance mainly “wears the pants”.  I think when we have children, the roles will reverse.

    He does. I don’t really have preferences about a lot of things (like where we go to lunch, what we do on our off days, if we go to Walmart, etc), so he makes most of the decisions. If it’s something important that I do have an opinion on, we’re pretty 50/50.

    He gets one pant leg and I get the other. I’m more easy going so if he wants to do something, like eat at a certain place and the like, then whatever, I’ll go along with it. On huge financial decisions, we are 50/50. When I started working, I stole his pant-leg and said “DH! You need to help around the house more that I’m working too!” It’s only fair.

    I wish it was me… we’re pretty 50/50 but I definitely can’t just tell him what to do. The man has opinions about everything. Also, I’m definitely the more laid back one so I think he’s figured out that sometimes I’ll give in to keep the peace.

    I don’t think my Fiance ever wore a skirt or dress, so I guess it’s him! Cool

    (FYI I voted 50/50!)

    It’s pretty 50/50 but Darling Husband is very mushy, and I tease him sometimes that I’m the pants and he’s the skirt.

    I, by nature, am very aggressive.  I don’t think I could be in a relationship where I’m not at least 50/50.  I always attempt to wear the pants, but Fiance gets ultimate veto power, so therefore it’s 50/50
