Who controls the purse strings in your household?
Can you and your partner agree if asked who wears the pants in your relationship when it comes to financial decision making?
A new survey, commissioned by comparison site RateCity, has found that 84 percent of men think they control the household purse and only 21 percent women would grant their male partners control the financial matters, News.com.au reported.
But mere 7 percent of men said that their partners controlled the money even though 61 percent of women think they do.
The findings also showed that men are slightly more open about their finances than women when it comes to debt, savings and how much they earn.
