    I believe that the person who is most rational should have the final say. In nine cases out of ten, it is the man, but there are cases that go beyond the stereotypes of emotional women and rational men.

    I am in no position to tell anyone how to structure their relationship. Still, mine is based around me as the female actually being more rational than my emotional partner, and me usually ending up as having the final say when disputes arise because of this dichotomy.

    As long as the woman doesn't suddenly become Harold you're going to be fine.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Women are too emotional to make the right decisions. That is why, even in the absence of a husband or partner, a man should make a decision for them, like her father, or her brother, or another male relative.

    Both, a couple isn't a dictatorship or slave relation. When we make a decision, we consult each other and arrive at a conclusion together. That's the meaning of a family and healthy, functional relationship between adults.

    I'd like to get my way all the time, but I'd be concerned about any woman who let me have it.

    I never had any trouble with who decided things in my relationships, it always seemed to happen naturally. It should be a mix of both, and ideally they will both agree on most things. When they don't, then they'll likely be able to work it out. All things have got to be fair, and both people should feel that they have autonomy in their lives, simultaneously as they are together.

    Both of course. Folks who voted men are probly mostly single. There is stuff a woman is better at, and as a mother, a woman's got a lot to say in her kid's education. A relationship can be full of compromises, but if two folks have the same views on things that doesn't have to happen.
