CC: Who's the Boss?

We sometimes joke about "who's the boss" at home and Jacob will reply immediately saying "it's Mommy!" Matt and I just laugh. Sometimes, when I want Matt to smile, I would say, "yes bossing" and he likes that, lol :-). Anyway, when it comes to almost everything in the house, we both decide what to do and what to buy. We also agree on how we discipline Jake. We may sometimes agree to disagree and that helps. Compromise is a big help, too. There is no boss even when it comes to finances.

At church (LDS) where we belong, this is what our church leaders taught us and we do the best we can to follow it:

"By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. "Children are an heritage of the Lord" (Psalms 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations.

  3. I couldn't agree with you more. Having more authority than you partner should not exist in the household. Both shall be equal in everything for marriage is partnership di ba? We might have different ways with our partners but everything can be talked over and compromise shall apply.. Thanks for the scripture and have a great day!
