Ok. There was a post here on a completely different topic and a comment was made about how women set the tone of the household.

My observations have been the opposite (men setting the tone) but I wonder. So here is my informal poll.

So for those of you in a mixed gender relationship - please vote!

My DH can usually make me laugh at myself and break my bad moods. I don't have this skill so on occasions when he is pissy, I have to wait for it to pass.
