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% of men think they control the household purse and only 21% women would grant their male partners control the financial matters, News.com.au reported.

But mere 7% of men said that their partners controlled the money even though 61% 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.
