In this paper, we focus on bargaining within male–female pairs, the most pervasive partnership in humankind. We analyze data from an ultimatum game played by Greek subjects. Parallel to this, we introduce a one-way communication protocol according to which the responders can send short messages to the receivers, after making their decisions. The analysis shows that gender and message effects exist and that males are more effective bargainers.
