Study Shows Women Call the Shots at Home

According to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center, 43 percent of men don’t have the final say in any of the major household decisions


A study shows women may have more control over their relationship than they think.

According to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center,  a surprising 43 percent of men don’t have the final say in any of the major household decisions tested.

The survey asked questions about who makes decisions in four areas:  household finances, weekend activities, large home purchases and television viewing.    

According to the survey, only a quarter of men make decisions in more areas than their female partner. In 31 percent of the relationships, the pair split decision-making responsibilities equally

How does your household compare? Tell us who makes more decisions in your household in the four areas.  

  1. Who decides what you do together on the weekend?
  2. Who manages the household finances?
  3. Who makes the decisions on big purchases for the home?
  4. And who most often decides what to watch on television?

This makes sense, I have final say on business decisions she has final say on homelife decisions. Probably been this way for decades. As for the television--I refuse to watch her chick flick programs and she refuses to watch most sports, so I watch television elsewhere in the house. Most tv programming isn't for married white males, anyway. Not like the old days. Clearly the networks have targeted audiences and predicated programming accordingly to attract them. And that isn't me.
