IDIOM of the week!


To wear the pants

IDIOM of the week!
This idiom describes someone who is in charge in a relationship. It refers to the time when women could not wear pants — only men could. So the one who wore the pants was supposed to be the one who had the higher authority as women were not considered the equals of men. Now it can refer to anyone, not only women.
