Men might throw their weight around at the office, but at home, women are the bosses.
A study, which was just released, finds that wives have more power than their husbands in making decisions and dominating discussions.
“The study at least suggests that the marriage is a place where women can exert some power,” said lead author David Vogel, a psychologist at Iowa State University (ISU). “Whether or not it’s because of changing societal roles, we don’t know.â€
The results counter past research.
â€œMost of the research literature in psychology has suggested that women have less power,â€ Vogel told LiveScience. â€œThey have largely based that on the fact that traditionally men earn more money and so therefore would have the ability to make big decisions in the relationship.â€ That wasnâ€™t the case in this study.
