    Default the upper hand in this relationship

    In an article talking about May December affair:

    "I may have the upper hand in this relationship because of my age, acquired knowledge and life experience. But I did not think that my husband is inferior. He has his own special skill."
    **************************************************

    What is the meaning of the upper hand in this relationship ?

    Also probably a greater degree of control over the relationship, I would imagine.
