Which one of you is a better problem solver, you or your partner? A lot of people would say that a female partner is a better problem solver if its involved financial matters. That doesn't mean that the guys are not as good. Just that the guys would often be complacent in solving the matters and would delays in finding the solution. Whereas, the female partner just can't live with the problem any longer and would rather solve it themselves. Did you agree?

I am. This is because my husband rarely talks. And when something or a problem does bother him - he stays queit and doesn't say a word... It drives me CRAZY that he does this and I have to talk to him about it right away because if I don't solve the problem - I'm up all night.. I don't know how men can sit there and do this to themselves?

For my case, It's the opposite. My husband is a good problem solver than me. I think it helps to have a cool composure (which he has) to solve issues at hand. Especially those financial issues, he knows how to work with it for the best. I do not know if his being Accountant contribute on his ability to handle money well but his judgement over financial matters always proves to be correct. Luckily I have him as a husband or else I will be in deep trouble I suppose.

My wife is the better problem solver than I. Of financial matters, she can solve it easily. Problems concerning human relations she too can overcome it. When dealing with children, she handles them very well. She is a good counsellor too. Hence, I call my wife : My better half instead of my other half.

I often will come up with decent solutions, but my husband is the one who implements them the best.

Same here! My wife is usually the problem solver, even if I have to disagree sometimes... She always turn out right. I guess it's one of her powers!
