    Traditionally , It was always the man in the family that went out

    to do battle and make the decisions for their family and the wife

    was in the background having babies and backing him up.

    Some carry the modern version to extremes, but women also

    want to wear the pants in the family and even if they let the man,

    they are in the background nagging instead of backing him up.

    Second guessing everything that he does. Sometimes right and

    sometimes wrong. Just like you cannot have two presidents

    running a country - you cant have two people having the last

    word in a relationship. If the man lets the woman, then no matter

    what she says, she does not have the respect for him and

    should look for somebody else.

    Because THEY ARE MEN. Just how they are. Why do they have wieners? If you don't like it, then try women.

    I used to date a girl who wanted to wear the pants all the time; talk about bossy & mouthy. For a bunch of reasons I dumped her. Then I heard that afterwards she dated a guy who was girly, needy, clingy, a crybaby, and wanted her to wear the pants; and she got so sick of his ballessness that she dumped him. So watch out what you wish for.

    You can wear the pants if you want. But I am still not doing the dishes or picking up after myself.

    because they are less of a man

    a successful relationship has to be each person giving 150%

    has to be respectful and loving

    not demanding or submissive

    no one should bully or be bullied

    Men are the head of the house hold (so they say) but a marrige should be a partnership. Men have certain veiws on "masculinity".

    Yes they should

    most men will try to assume this role, if you don't like it, find a lesbo.
