Do you think a man must always be the one to deal with the heavy lifting and hard work in life?
Must a woman always take care of everything domestic and sentimental?
Those are not easy questions to answer, however the point is you need to have a role to play and you need to play it well.
That’s not to say you can never switch roles or substitute when one another needs a hand, but a relationship is far easier to work out when everyone knows where they stand.
When lines are blurred and one of you feels let down by the other because you feel they haven’t fulfilled their role, problems can arise.
You need to communicate what these roles are to be clear of what you expect of each other. That way you will also be happier to live up to your side of the deal, knowing your partner is doing the same.
