Interactions between the sexes has always been a hard thing to figure out. Especially in these modern times where women are expected to be as "tough" as men (however you define that), and men are encouraged to get more in touch with their "feminine" side (I had to look up how to spell "feminine"). I personally have ALWAYS had a hard time with that one.

The modern relationship generally resembles something like both partners splitting everything down the middle including such things as rent, food, chores and entertainment. While the tradional relationship usually has a breadwinner and a homemaker, with one helping out the other when needed..

I know in these tough economic times, lots of couples HAVE to become two income households just to make ends meet. But if you had a choice would you prefer a MODERN relationship (for lack of a better term) or a Traditional relationship?
