Women rule in the home and marriage, study suggests

A small study from researchers at Iowa University has concluded that many women rule the marriage relationship and the home, due in part to changing times and roles of the sexes.

The survey of 72 married couples shows that the man does not always hold the power, particularly where children are concerned.

“Roles have changed in a relationship. Women are no longer just in charge of the house and cleaning and cooking and standing there with a martini when husbands come home,” Dr. Fariello said.
