Husband and Wife Tag

So, Claire Tagged me so here goes:

Husband and Wife Tag
What is his name? Jake
How long have you been married ? 5 yrs in Aug
How old is he? 28
Who eats more? You know, I don't know. At meals, he eats more, throughout the day I eat more. What else are mom's suppossed to do??
Who said I love you first? I admit I sort of wanted to manipulate that situation. I knew I loved him but I wanted him to say it first so I told him I was falling in love with him and then he said that he loved me. I don't know how to call that one.
Who is taller? Jake
Who sings better? Jake is a closet karaokier--actually pretty darn good. I would have to say I have a bit more skill than him, however.
Who is smarter? You know, I think Jake is great, but I do think I'm smarter. He has an amazing ability to retain information that I was definitely not blessed with.
Whose temper is worse? I'm definitely more of the brat but I don't think I have a temper. Jake has ZERO temper. Sometimes I wish he would get mad at me so I would feel justified in being a brat. Never happens. Danget!!
Who does the laundry? I do...he did just switch the loads, however. He'll help me fold when i'm down to 2 or 3 shirts left. He's very good at always helping out right at the end:).
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? That was one of those weird, I never would have thought of that moments, on our first night together. I didn't care so I picked the right side, the side my mom sleeps on. I think all of my sisters sleep on the right now-funny, huh?
Who cooks dinner? Me!! He does the dishes though. Actually, now we split dinners with Claire so I do the dishes more often now.
Who drives when you are together? Jake, it's one of those male chivalry things that I love about him.
Who is more stubborn? Not even a question. Me. Me. Me. I am so stinkin' stubborn I make myself mad.
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Jake. Once again, not even a question. The woman is always right, right?
Whose parents do you see the most? Jewkesies. Living with them makes it darn near impossible not to see them more.
Who has more friends? I have more friends but Jake is definitely the better friend. I'm not very good at working on friendships so if they happen, that's great, if not, I'm not one to go chasing after it. That might explain my inability to answer my phone. I'm sorry!
Who has the most siblings? If you take Jake's family and multiply it by 2.5 then you get mine. For those of you not gifted in the math area, that means I have a larger family. Wasn't much hope for Jake in that category.
Who wears the pants in the family? By outward appearances, I do, but we really do make most decisions together. I'd say we each have one leg in those parachute pants!

I tag Shalie and Jamie if she ever gets her darn blog up!!
