    In this paper, we consider the problem of married-women labor supply process estimation under the hypothesis of strategic interaction with their partners. Based on the theory of household models, discrete choices models and game theory, we present the labor supply decision-making process of married women in the form of an extensive tree of game. Therefore, we try to estimate the process using a recent approach of discrete choices (strategic approach) and specifying via equations structural its advantage in the study of strategic data. Applying the strategic model on individual Tunisian data, observed in 2001, enables us to note that as contrary to woman expectations, financial side is not a determining factor of husband reaction once his wife gave up her work. This result observed only by taking into account the effect of strategic interaction.
