My partner hates getting bogged down in details, so when more detail is involved, like making a decision on spending money on something important, then I usually have more sway, but if it is something that is simpler and more principle based, I think my partner usually has the stronger influence over the decision.

OP
My husband and I disagree occasionally about parenting issues, but we each tend to give way to whichever one of us feels more strongly about something. Pick your battles, is my motto. Sometimes, when it comes to something I feel really strongly about, I'll remind my husband of the last time I let him get his way on something, and it usually tips the scale in my favour. ;-)
