    Thanks in advance.
    Generally, my opinion is that decisions should be made jointly, and I acknowledge the man to be the spiritual head of the household in marriage, though this role can be abdicated, for instance, in cases of abuse or neglect. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to, or less than, men, because men and women are equal in dignity and grace. But whether who gets more weight in a particular decision could vary, depending on the issue, and I think this is an area of prudential judgment for each couple.
