[FREEBIE] [FINISHED] 1x Deus EX: Human Revolution - 1x Dirt: Showdown - 1x Nexuiz

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN
I will be running two of these freebie giveaways.
Each giveaway will contain 3 STEAM games, 3 winners.
A little different to most giveaways but out of curiosity, i want to know how the majority feel about this topic since i was in a debate regarding it not long ago.

Prizes -




To be Eligible:
- You must be in the first 35 posts

To Win
- Answer the following question and state why?

There will be 3 winners, and i will rate them 1st, 2nd and 3rd depending on the answer.

  • 1st place will chose 1 out of the 3 games
  • 2nd place will chose 1 out of the remaining 2 games
  • 3rd place will have to cop it on the chin with the unwanted game tongue.gif

Who should run the household.... Husband or wife?

Goodluck thumb.gif

What I mean by this is that the husband helps provide the house, the food, the income, all the necessity's of life. I think they should be the ones that go out and work and have the major income. The wife is just as important though because she will be the one to look after everything and everyone when the husband is out working. When it is put this way it would sound like I favour the wife more; however, since the husband is providing the main backbone for the family to live off of in the end it should be his ultimate decision as to what happens. The wife would (and hopefully) still have tons of input on all the decisions made but the husband I believe should have the final word when it comes to certain matters. This is just my 2cents.gif
Thanks for the chance at the give away cheers.gif

1st place

Awesome giveaway. I'm in for Dirt Showdown. I already have the other two games, and funnily enough, this is the exact game pack that I DID NOT get when I ordered my 7950 from overclockers.co.uk. I would have been giving away, was actually looking forward to giving away the other two games. So if I happen to come in 2nd or 3rd and Dirt Showdown has gone, then please give the remaining game/s to other users. Anywho, thanks and cheers in advance smile.gif

2nd Place

3rd Place


________________________________________________________________

Thanks for all the input here and now i will share mine.. (not stating it as fact, entirely opinion)

I believe for a healthy household, the women should be running it..... though the man should be leading her.
I think a good women's attributes are more superior in terms of relations because of her compassion, sensitivity and deeper emotion.

Naturally Men, if healthy, should be dominant in the house thus calling all the shots from upstairs. Of course the women plays a role in his decision making, but ultimately direction would be lead by the man.

The healthiest of households all reveal, a women managing and her husband directing.
The husband supplies the protection, the security and that strong demeanor, while in return, the women managers the relations in the family.
I believe the perfect relationship lies in these natural practices.

They say behind every successful man, is a good women. And that goes a long way.

Normally I'd say husband, we tend to be more dominant, but nowadays, considering you get arrested if you kill your neighbor for his land rolleyes.gif, I'd say wife, they're more logical.

Either really, it's a matter of who wants to take responsibility.

If I had to choose, I'd say husband. I feel I am in the right mindstate to manage financial situations, including myself, wife, and future children. I'd know what is best, but having the input of the wife is always important. It's really a two lane road nowadays.

I'll say whoever pays the bills! If the wife does it, the husband shouldn't say anything, same the other way around.If both the contribute the same to the household, then I would say the husband, men normally now how much money they can use up for vacations and stuff, instead of the women fantasizing.

Both. It is stupid to let everything on the hands of one person, considering each has it's own strenghts and weaknesses. I would never let my GF manage my money, i'd spend it all on computers and food tongue.gif

The one with the most saying would be a woman though, they can manage stuff better in general, both time and money matters.

I'd say the wife because generally women are better at being organized and better with handling certain things thus better to run the household.
