Study Shows Women Call the Shots at Home

According to a Pew study, 43 percent of men don’t have final say in any major household decisions. Is that the case in your home? Tell us in the comments.

A study shows women may have more control over their relationships 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 TV?
