As far as the man having the final word, I am man enough to admit that I have made the wrong choice a time or two, and a little input is very welcome.
I didn't mean to ruffle any feathers, I was simply stating my observations over the years.
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.......................... Just cause the guy is the "boss" doesnt mean it gives him the right to be mean or disrespect me.
It also doesnt mean that she cant be opinionated at times about things, or have her own ideas.
I think being old fashioned is somewhat similar but not to that extreme.
