1. To "wear the pants" in a relationship is to be the person in charge of the relationship, whether that being the man or the woman, even though it is usually the man.

1. Refers to the person in charge.
2. The phrase stems from the time of patriarchy when men went out and worked to provide for their families while women tended the home. Men wore pants while women were more likely to wear dresses. The men of that time were seen as the leaders of their families.
3. An insult to one memember of a relationship, usually the male, who has lost or willingly given the majority of control of the relationship to the other.
Ben: Hey, what happened to Joe? His phone rang and the next thing I know he was gone.

Jake: Oh that would have been his wife Donna calling and telling him to come home and put his dishwashing skirt on. She wears the pants in that house.

Wearing the pants refers to the more dominant person in a relationship and one who showers their boyfriend with more love than the he could ever even begin to imagine bestowing upon her. Normally the person who makes the first move at the furniture shop, tells the other person that their dad was once their little brother's soccer coach, etc, wears the pants. Wearing the pants has absolutely NOTHING to do with the actual size of the pants being worn.
Since I always make important decisions in my relationship, put my foot down, and make our plans, I, obviously, am wearing the pants.
