I think we are both about the same amount of strict...I just enforce better LOL.
The kids always come to me first.
I say no more often. Dan gives the minute they get crying or throwing a fit too long(which for Dan is about 1 minute).
Hmmm.. Avery is too young, but I will hazard a guess at what the future will bring. I think DH will be more easy-going in general and I will be the one that has to enforce the rules. However I think it there was some sort of grave infraction, he would be more angry and lose his cool sooner.

I don't know that I'm stricter, but I'm definitely more cautious. Like when Leah & DH play in the backyard, he doesn't get the least bit nervous when she's climbing and exploring high up or near a creek, but I'm ready to have a heart attack and I'm the one telling her to slow down, watch out, be careful, etc.
Leah will usually ask me about something first since I'm the one always around but if she thinks it's something I might say no to, she's learned to try DH. But he's smart and usually says, "What did Momma say?"
I think I am stricter. It's hard since his father and I aren't together, but usually I just tell him what to do with certain behavior, or if he is under a specific punishment, and he follows through with it as well.
I am much stricter. I dont take any BS and rules must be followed. When I was sick a few weeks ago, the first day i was back with the kids, jake got in trouble and said "ooops, mom is back in town!" so obv he was getting away with loads while i was in bed sick!
DH is good at making sure the rules are followed, but i give one warning, then punish. Dh gives way too many warnings!
Jake will ask me first because he knows dh will either say go ask mom or what did mom say.
