Each of us have 'roles' in our family. Which one is yours? a. I am the head of the household (most of the time). b. I clean up after everybody elses messes. c. I am the butt of jokes d. I am usually the voice of reason. I'm actually the voice of reason, else I complain too much! hahaha.. What about you?

Previous role is that I'm only a follower, that when I'm still studying. Now that I'm already have my own family, I was promoted and become the Leader.

I have an equal role to my wife. We both keep the household together and strong. We both work and spread the chores evenly. I don't like the sound of "family roles" it's pretty creepy to put someone at the top and say that that person is the family's lifeline.

I am their lifeline. Without me I dont think they could dress themselves. The only one that may do okay is my youngest daughter. She's almost 15 so she's going thru that independent, dont bother me stage. Unfortunately, my fiance is old school latino. He believes that I am here to serve him. I havent had the heart to tell him its not.lol He takes good care of me and my children even though he's not their real father. He allows me to do whatever I want, buy what i want, etc. I am BIG WILMA! What I say usually goes. I love that. I just dont like the fact that I have to tell everyone what to do. I honestly think if I was to fall off the face of the earth they would be lost. lol I love taking care of them. I must admit if they did become independent I would have nothing to do or complain about. My man makes sure I know he appreciates me. Its my 21 year old I worry about. dl

I'm the second in command in my household. My husband is the chief. However, he always refers to me as the Minister for Home Affairs. In a way, it is something like that. I run his household from stocking supplies to administering, handling, executing the budget on a smaller scale. Since we run our affairs based on mutual decision or even a family votation, he never goes behind his Minister's back without doing consultations and extensive discussions/talks.
