Who Has the Most Power in Your Relationship?

Dear Quiz: Who Wears the Pants in Your Relationship?

I'd like to think that all relationships are created equal, that each person has equal power, but let's be honest, that's just not realistic. Sure, the power can change from day to day or month to month, but someone seems to always have the upper hand. So where do you fall? Who wears the pants in your relationship? Take this quiz and find out.

Oh look - I used two "ands" in my list above. I suppose I won't be allowed access to the blog of our creation now. :( Sadness.

Hah! I think you've all caught on to something. Maybe we should have a WordNerdSugar as a sub-blog of GeekSugar. It could feature grammar lessons of the day, and celebrities using words with more than two syllables, and audio clips of Tim Gunn on every page saying things like "your outfit has quite a bit of sturm und drang," "let's caucus" or "I am underwhelmed."

cvandoorn, looks like we were posting at the same time. :) You are right that this is just for fun. As I stated above I really try not to point things out unless I feel they're egregious. (Your mistake was NOT egregious, I was just being silly continuing the chain!) However, chiwawa is just NOT the right spelling and I think that it's worth it to point that out to people who might then go spell it incorrectly themselves. I know I'm a little annoying (or maybe more than a little, to some). But still, sometimes I just can't help it. It's not something I'm proud of :)

And by the by, I often make mistakes when I'm typing and I've posted many errors in my comments, without a doubt. But, I'm also not a paid blogger. Neither is karlotta. I think it's a fair point to say that some more editing could be done. Today alone, there was this your/you're error, spelling chihuahua "chiwawa" and putting an apostrophe in guy's when the intent was to pluralize, not to make it possessive. And that's just in this blog. Don't even get me started on some of the others on this site! Sadly, my upbringing causes me to notice all this. I realize this is not really a professional news source and probably doesn't have an editor, so I usually just let them slide. But nevertheless, I do think karlotta makes a good point. Maybe I'll start being EditorSugar! lol

Hahaha I don't really care about grammar or spelling because this is just a fun thing - not like we are all writing for a magazine here. I just don't understand when people make such a big deal about mistakes. I am so tempted to make stupid grammatical mistakes on purpose now! But I won't. :)

I am going to continue this fun trend of correcting other posts. cvandoorn, it should be "It's that mistake," not "Its that mistake." I'm trying really hard not to screw this post up, so the chain doesn't continue.

Hahah yourself made a mistake: YOUR relationship, not YOU'RE relationship. That mistakes drives me crazy. Its that MISTAKE sweetie.

in most respects, i'd say that i am the one who wears the pants.. but he does too (sometimes haha)but it works out well for us. however, this quiz does not reflect that at all.. apparently i am a pushover! ha! that's funny..

I got the "easy-going gal", which is pretty true. My husband and I both make most decisions together. We're pretty balanced.

yeah, no offense, but that quiz was silly. In the past, I think I've been the dominant partner in my relationships, but I have to say, currently, things seem very even. I like better this way.

I was an easy-going gal, too. I think that's inaccurate. Both my husband and I think that I tend to wear the pants. It works for us. :)

YOUR relationship, not YOU'RE relationship. That mistakes drives me crazy. This isn't my 9 year old cousin's blog, for crying outloud - READ YOURSELF BEFORE PUBLISHING!!!

The Easy-Going Gal You're relationship is pretty even keeled. You both respect each other's time and opinion. This sounds a lot like us. We both work together to make each other happy :)

I want a do-over! There isn't enough questions. I think one of the questions should be, "When you're arguing, who is the first to apologize?"

I got the same results as cvandoorn: I'm a pushover!?!? The stats said that I was the easygoing gal, and yet I got pushover. It doesn't match up. It's ok though. I know that we're pretty evenly matched. He makes most of the decisions since I'm so indecisive, but he always makes sure to ask for my approval first!

I was an easy-going gal. Tell that to my boyfriend. Hah!

LOL my quiz results were 'the pushover'. How does that make sense when the answers I picked were all the ones where things are equal. Doesn't make sense (scratches head). All in all, i'd say i'm the one in control. After all, he likes to keep me happy and he is perfectly happy doing that. The good thing is that he's still a MAN :)
