Study Shows Women Call the Shots at Home

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.

Does this sound like your family? Who's the boss in your house?
