    "If you were my wife, I wouldn't let you do that."

    "I wouldn't let my husband go do that."

    It's the age-old question ... who rules the roost?

    I have fits of apoplexy every time I hear either of those statements. Now, I understand common respect in a relationship ... there are some things you shouldn't even have to 'ask' if you can do.

    Common sense should be knocking on your noggin on most things ... like a fella coming home covered in stripper dust. Either make sure your wife is one of the ones that doesn't mind an occasional trip ... or brush the dust off before you get home.

    Noggin knocking for the ladies ... either make sure he understands that you work for a living, too and that it's a JOINT checking account ... or hide the clothes in the trunk till he leaves ... (most likely headed for the 'club') ...:lol:

    Is your relationship ruled with an iron fist or is it a joint effort?

    Is there a particular lead taker on most issues or do you handle what you're good at and let the significant other handle what they're good at?

    I don't include females in any decision making.

    They're only on the earth for me to womanize and degrade, then never call again.




































    ...I'm KIDDING.

    nice one bace. :p



    I'm a bit too young to be answering these.... but...
    I think that when I do look for a wife, I would want her to be strong in areas that I am weak in.... and visa versa.... that way we could help each other.

    I take a biblical view on things, and in the bible it says that the male is the leader/provider of the house. so, in respect for that... I would take the leadership role. Not like an iron fist like you were saying... but good leaders are good listeners. I believe that you shouldn't make decissions from your emotions, and that is why I think women(in general) shouldn't be the leader of the house. I've seen guys that have much worse problems.... but that's a whole other subject.

    Those are my thoughts... some of them... lol

    I think that this would be enough of your post to suffice, there Chris.... the other part dangles food over dangerous territory. ;)

    my dinner better be on the table when i get home or else... :whip:






    i'm totally kidding too. i have the utmost respect for my wife... :love: she works harder than me and still finds time to do more housework than me. I do the majority of the cooking, but she does the majority of the dishes. i pay most of the bills because i'm OCD about making sure my accounts are balanced to the cent, but we have separate checking accounts so she can be off by $75 if she wants (that would drive me INSANE :crazy: ). i take care of all the yardwork, but we team up/trade off on just about everything else...

    Can I borrow you for a while? I pay the bills in our family unit ... but only because I have more time to sit down and do it ... though I wing it on the balance ... long as the bank has more money than I show, it's all good ...

    My husband does the yard work and we split the housework ... meaning he cleans the nasty stuff ... shower, toilets and garbage ... I do dishes, cook and the rest of the cleaning.

    Calliope ... you rock, chicklett!

    Classic! :) So you're saying, based on that logic, women aren't as capable of being cops, firewomen, fighter pilots, etc...or any other career that involves emotion?

    Regarding a relationship...I'm a fan of 50/50 as much as possible, with the person doing what he/she has the most strength/expertise. I think a smart and strong woman is totally sexy.
