In most couples, women are the decision-makers.
By Kristin Wong
James Brown told us that it's a man's world, but this study might beg to differ. According to the Pew Research Center, it's women who have the final say on many household decisions.
The organization interviewed over 1,000 adults who were married or living with a partner and asked them who was in charge of making the decisions in four areas of domestic life. For a whopping 43 percent of couples, women are calling the shots.

So women make most of the decisions; they just let men think they do.
Great article! This works the same in my house too...I make the weekend plans, I work the remote, and I do the family finances. I am not the "boss", We make many decisions together, honestly, I am just better with money and more organized, as far as tv, we don't watch much but news anyway(and cartoons with our 4 yr old)
Women in the past used their power covertly. To paraphrase the Aretha Franklin song, there was a time where they used to say behind every man was a great woman; however, times have changed and women has gotten out of the kitchen and there is one thing to say -SISTERS ARE DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES, STANDING ON THEIR OWN TWO FEET, RINGING THEIR OWN BELLS.

They are taking more dominant roles and are completely unapologetic about it!
I agree , If my wife wants to run the domestic duties , so be it ! Its a womans world this domestic play !
Great article indeed, i really enjoyed and read it whole. There are all points described well and define greatly. Off course, in this women world its woman who finally decide what action should be taken in household matters. In my opinion its a great way to offer some sort of respect to them.
But then I'm thinking maybe I'm passive agressive and make her feel like .......She's the deciscion maker! ........And I'm really the Big Kahoona around here !
