    Who is the ultimate decision-maker, wife or husband?

    In truth neither.

    Being married means being in a "partnership" ... There will be times when the wife will bend to the husband and there are times the husband bends to the wife.

    In reality partners talk about things and explain their individual points of view. If your partner is making more sense than you are you listen to them. If they are not you expect them to listen to you.

    If you both make sense and neither wishes to bend then you have to work out a middle ground or agree to disagree on this area.

    There is no one person who is the decision maker in most relationships. Unless of course you have chosen a very submissive partner.

    Both. A wife and husband come together and make a discision based on their wants and needs combined. They are in this together, leaning on one another for their future.

    A good marriage is a partnership, with each partner wanting what is best for the family as a whole. I can't recall my husband or myself making a big decision without talking it over.  But I also trust him completely and if he needed to make a big decision for our family, I know it would have everyone's best interest at heart.

    The politically correct answer is to say the power is shared.
    However in reality it all depends on what is being considered.
    Very rarely do both people "feel" equally strong about anything.
    Couples learn to pick their battles.
    If it's not a "deal breaker" there is always room for compromise.
