as someone who has a lot of experience being a boss at various levels of management and a husband for a long time (20+ years for both), this analogy breaks down in the following ways.
when i delegate decisions to people at work, i do so out of practicality. i have bigger things to worry about. i develop people to make good decisions, but i am still accountable for those decisions. if i put the wrong people in the wrong position for the wrong decisions that is still my responsibility. they aren’t my “partners”.
i don’t delegate decisions to my wife. we are buying a car now, and she knows ultimately that big purchases are my decision. i don’t delegate interior design or meal planning or day to day shit to her. i just don’t give a shit and am genuinely happy with whatever she does. she handles volume and i handle importance. that is the difference and is more of a partnership. kind of in the same sense of 2 people starting a company and one has a technical background and another a sales background. you are naturally going to focus on different shit as part of your partnership.
