if you can live through the first minute of bad script and acting, then it gets much better after that

My old man is a Swiss scientist and his favourite remark is:
'I'm always right, and the only time I was wrong was when I knew I was wrong'
Mine is "I'm always right, and if I'm not, then it wasn't important".

My other favorite saying is "Anarchy rules, or I do. Choose one!"

I just wanted to ask and Expats that have Swiss german female partners. Who wears the pants in the relationship and is it common for them not to really budge once a decision is made.. (even if its the wrong decision)..
She always thinks she's right and she never budges!

So I guess there are no Swiss scientists because you would have to be right all of the time and no one manages that.
Or, all Swiss scientists are female

Re: Swiss German women.

Also remember it depends on whose territory you are on. For example if your spouse is Swiss and you come to Switzerland with them it gives them a bit of an edge. And vice-versa...if you are American with a foreign spouse and you live in America then it gives the USA person a bit of an edge. Meaning that they spouse is at home and they know the culture and their way around. You, the foreign spouse, are not so familiar so you are more dependant. For a while at least. But this doesn't necessarily mean that the situation will be negative. Most of the time in relationships someone gives in more than the other.
