Dear Poll: Who Wears the Pants?

A recent study in Iowa examined the dynamic of 72 married couples whose average age was about 33 and average length of marriage was seven years. After observing how the men and women interacted, women appeared to have more power, more domineering and dominant behaviors than their husbands, regardless of who brought up the topic of conversation.

These results were not all that shocking to me, especially since I know so many strong willed women. So while it was clear in this study that women displayed more power than their husbands during problem-solving discussions, what I want to know is, who wears the pants in your relationship?
