I just watched 3 shows on this channel. AND I noticed a trend, even if the couples were NOT married. 6 out of 6 times even if the couple were wanting completely different uses. (He wants a fishing boat and she wants a boat for family gatherings.) The women got what they wanted! One of the guys asked the girlfriend who was going to pay for it?
$300 K to $3.8 Million I guess I been married to long... If my wife got all she wanted, she would be living on my insurance $.

At work we have Process hands and Mechanical hands. During a turnaround for scheduling and man power purposes they go by P and M. Our Ops manager is a woman; she told us before the last turnaround to not forget who the plant belong to. Process. She said "P runs this plant". The same holds true in life.

Yup, it's the "P" for sure. Years ago I was walking toward the lunch room in the office area where I worked. Two good looking girl contract admins were walking toward me. They were laughing and having a great old time. I knew them both and asked what was so funny. The taller one (real hot) said that "it's Friday and the boyfriend is already off work and at my place and wondering if he's gonna get lucky tonight". And with that they both died laughing again. I said you gotta tell me what's so funny, and she said "I already know". And they died laughing again and walked on down the hall.

I think that was the first time that I really understood how some things worked.

I have seen way too many men who let the female call the shots in the relationship.

I have seen them ask for permission to go fishing or hunting, I am amazed when I see when the man turns over the family bank accounts and paying bills to the female.

I do understand that family court is biased toward the female.

It is the Mans role in the relationship to make all the major decisions, and it is the females role to support his decision.......

Interesting, so what happens if something happens to you and your wife is clueless about ya'lls finances or clueless on finances in general. Marriage is a joint effort.

My wife is in charge of finances but we still review them every month. We make major decisions together.

Red Ranger nailed it. A friend lived in his neighbor hood. The friend was walking his dog by Red Ranger's house. He heard Red Ranger hollering, "if I want to go out drinking, I'll go out drinking. If I want to go hunting on your birthday, I'll go out hunting on your birthday. If I want to buy a nre fishing boat, I'll buy a new fishing boat. And, if I want o come out from under this bed, I'll come out from under this bed."

I have to agree with Red Ranger here. I find it strange how in some relationships the woman runs everything. In my house I have final say on everything, and my wife supports that. Of course I seek her opinions and we usually talk about big decisions, but not always, and if I want it, it happens. I have never asked if I can buy something, go hunting, etc. She understands it's the mans job to be the leader of the household and she trusts my judgement so it works well for us.

Paying bills isn't about being the leader of the house hold.

Pretty simply process actually. Paying bills isn't difficult.
I handle 90% of the investments but I still ask her opinion. Once set up those investments are auto pilot. She see's same reports I do and understands them.

We both work but live off one salary. Rest goes to savings and investments.

I'm the bread winner per the numbers but she isn't doing to bad being she is the top sales reps(5 years running) for one the largest outdoor clothing brands in America.
I figured if she could handle 30 plus million a year in sells, I image she can pay bills and be an equal partner in marriage and finances lol. If she wants something she doesn't have to ask me nor do I have to ask her. That's stupid.

We each have a base line. After we meet savings goal for that year. Who cares what each other buys.

We always had separate checking accounts. What was hers, was hers, and what was mine, was ours.

I wouldn't even ask what kind of boat she wanted. I'd just bring it home and show it to her.

This wasn't a over thinking thing, just an observation. I have been married over 33 years. My wife is in corporate real estate and deals with millions every month. Our income is not that good! SHE has made 2x what I have made for years. Yes, I'm happy about that! We live way below our means, so we don't have a large, new, big house.
Colt.45: I remember the first year I made $30 k a year, and my house payment was $300/ month. I went out and bought a race car trailer. Anyway, just putting it out for conversation.

I handled all the bills for twenty five years and one day, just quit and handed her the keys to the kingdom. This was a few years ago, and we're still married, still sleep together, still best friends, and still have a few bucks in the bank.

Letting her handle finances does not endanger your man card.

Do y'all not trust the ladies?

For me, it's not about the finances. It's about being the captain of my boat. The king of my castle.

Took my wife and I a few years to reach this level in our marriage but it has worked great until then. I actually prefer her to pay bills as it makes her feel apart of the process. It has made our marriage stronger.

I agree, being the leader of the household is about much more than paying the bills and that was exactly my point, I wasn't referring just to finances. I let mine write some of the checks, but she doesn't make any of the major financial decisions and she doesn't care to or need to. She also knows that for every other major family and business decision the final responsibility falls to me and she supports that 100%. I also realize everyone's situation is different, some families need two incomes, some families the wife is better with responsible budgeting, some families the man is selfish or doesn't put the needs of the family above himself, etc.

Congrats on your wife's success, sounds like she contributes quite a bit to your income so you can save and invest. Mine is the CEO of the Social Calendar, President of the Meal Schedule, and General Manager of Mommy Play-Dates. roflmao We have been blessed in that she doesn't have to work so we can save and invest. She retired at 28, Lol.

You must be younger than me. I am Old School and believe in Man is King of the Castle.

Marriage isn't a joint effort, someone has to take the leadership role, and I took that role.

If something happens to me I would hope she would be able to figure things out.....
