it use to be in all relationships that it was fifty fifty no one had more say than the other and vise versa, and thats how its been for awhile but recently it has seemed like thats not so much the case anymore from what i am seeing, from what i am seeing it seems like either the girl gets everything she wants in the relationship or the guy gets whatever he wants in the relationship...and i always thought that it should be fifty fifty but even in my relationship sometimes we lean toward what each other wants and its not so fifty fifty...so i was just wondering about all of you is your relationship still 50/50 or not? i would like to thank you for taking the time out of your day to come by and read and review my discussion and hopefully answer, i hope that you all have had a great day so far and that you have a great and safe evening today, thanks again for taking the time to come by...

I don't think a relationship is ever 50/50 and I don't think it ever was or ever will be. I think that most woman still do more than the man when it comes to child rearing and when it comes to housework and keeping the house and family in order. As much as men think they are doing their half of things, they really aren't. But if most women are smart they let the man think they are doing half because the little that they do do, is still a help to them and if they complain the man may not do anything to help at all. Do you and your other half live together? And do you share in everything like help making breakfast and making the beds and doing the dishes and doing the laundry and the dusting and the vacuuming and washing the toilet and shower and sink and so on and so on. Do you really do half of all of that? I don;t think so. And then there are the kids. Does a husband take turns giving the kids a bath and feeding them and play with them and get them ready for bed and take them to the sitter and all of the other stuff involved with raising them. Like take them to the doctor or take them to school on their first day. I could go on but that is enough for now. I am sure you get my point.
