According to a new study, more men believe in their private lives they have less power than their women counterparts. The study finds that women make more of the decisions and men have taken a more backseat role.
The host of the podcast Supercharged Life tells Dr. Ian Smith because there is so much uncertainty in the world right now, that many people will want to find some other aspect of their life to exert control over in order to feel at ease. In these moments, Dr. Judy stresses that communication will be vital between partners, as both parties will be seeking a sense of control to ease their stress and anxiety. She also notes the pandemic may be helping people finally recognize what role they have been playing all along in their relationship. For example, someone might not have previously realized their partner was making all the small decisions -- like where to get dinner from -- and now that life is so limited and constrained, something as simple as what to eat becomes a big deal.
To avoid fights and arguments about who is in charge, she encourages couples to work together to make these decisions and says this may help to build a stronger relationship. The psychologist also stresses that couples need to focus on "teamwork, empowerment and communication skills" in order to ensure that each person knows what role works best for them in the relationship.
