Decision making by woman is an indicator of her status in the household. These decisions in households range from trivial issues like decision making about daily purchases to issues like deciding the number of children which have serious consequences in women’s health. The men always have some views regarding the decision making role of their wives in the household. A greater communication between men and women will encourage the husbands to develop egalitarian views and attitude towards wives’ decision making.

The third chapter deals with the results and discussion after analyzing both the primary and secondary data. The fourth chapter provides a summary of the findings of the study.
