Where the world comes to study the Bible

1 Peter 3:7

Who Wears the Pants'

Denis Thatcher, the husband of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, is remembered for his good-humored answer to a question from a reporter probing for some sign of jealousy or discord owing to Mrs. Thatcher’s post. As the Thatchers were moving into the prime minister’s residence at 10 Downing Street in London, the reporter queried Mr. Thatcher, “Who wears the pants in this house?”

“I do,” he answered, “and I also wash and iron them.”
