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.
