Women In Charge

From the "Well, duh!" files comes this report from Iowa State University that finds women typically have more decision making power in the household than men.

A quote from the article:

Trained volunteers coded the videotapes using a scale that rated couples’ interactions based on words and behaviors associated with blame (blames, accuses and criticizes the partner); demand (nags, pressures for change, requests); withdrawal and avoidance (avoids discussion the problem by hesitating, changing topics, diverting attention or looking away); and discussion.

Wives were more demanding—asking for changes in the relationship or in their partner—and were more likely to get their way than the husbands. This held regardless of who had chosen the issue.

This was certainly the case with MJ and I long before we entered into our current relationship.  She always controlled the money and set the agenda of the house.  That I would rebel and resist that control was only because I was denying my true nature.

Things are getting better now, mainly because MJ now gets to call the shots on everything without an argument.  (Well, mostly.  As I mentioned in my last post, I’m still a work in progress.)
