I think in my family,my wife must be the most powerful person because our common money is controlled by her.The rest members of us only have the cash when we really need it.In addition,when the cleaning takes place, she is always the only manager,conducting us to do this or that.Sometimes,she will even ask me to wash her clothes. However,our life couldn't work without her.She is most careful person in our family.If she is away for some time, there must be some smelled clothes unwashed. How about your family?

It seems that my family is the same with yours.My mother is so hard-working,she cleans the room and cook the meal for my dad and I.And also she is the money controller.But I sometimes think my father is as the same powerful as my mom,he earns to support my family,and he is the only one who earns money before I graduated from college.I think my father has so much pressure because he should earn enough money to pay for everything such as my school fee and the daily use.He spend so much time on working that he seldom has time to do the housework and keeping me company.

The most powerful person in my family is my mom. She calls the shots around here. She's earning the most amount, and she's the oldest so I think it's just right that she acts as the boss. Although when she's not around, I'm the one who acts as the boss. I'm not that good at being a leader but I try to lead them on anyway.

Salary-wise, my dad. Decision-wise, my mom. She is a bit more assertive and more street smart.

I have always thought of my late husband as the power person in my family. Now I find that I take on a lot of responsibilities and family members often look to me to get things done. So, without really meaning to the power in the family has fallen to me.

I think for the part it is me but my husband is trying to do better in this regard. Yeah I do all the cleaning and most of the cooking. My husband use to cook a lot as well but since we moved to a new area and he has to be gone longer I now take care of cooking as well. I know my husband would have a hard time managing without me. I think he is starting to realize this over time.
