There are no more roles in a relationship.

If you haven't figured it out yet they year is 2010. We are not stuck in the 1950's, so if you think a certain gender should have a specific role in your relationship you need to wake up. Relationships are partnerships now a days long gone are the bread winner days where the man goes out and brings home the money and the woman stays home to raise the kids. There is nothing wrong with a stay at home mom but nowadays it could be a stay at home dad. Most relationships see both partners have to enter the work force so you can forget about one partner being responsible for all the household duties. Relationships today have to be a partnership, all aspects have to be split to make it work. With both partners out of the house working 40 or more hours you cannot expect one partner alone to take care of all the chores. You have to see what works best for the two of you in this manner. Maybe you set specific chores like one person cooks while the other does the dishes or you can rotate chores so you both have a feel for them. Use your communication skills and work together to keep your house in top shape as well as your relationship.
