QUESTION: Question for women:

Do you think it's only a small percentage of women who would want a relationship with traditional gender roles or what do you think in general about traditional gender roles in a relationship?

  1. I don't know about what percentage of women are into traditional gender roles as I can only speak from my own experience, but within the relationship I have with my partner, our roles aren't very traditional.

  2. I catch myself thinking about this quite a bit. In my current relationship, I do about 90% of the cooking, and always clean. I really don't mind it though since I love to cook and my bf always makes me feel appreciated afterwards. Cooking for him is probably my daily highlight, I like to shop with him in mind and plan good meals every time we stay in. It also helps that my boyfriend is an immigrant from a culture where women are usually very traditional. Honestly, there's a small part of me that would LOVE to be a housewife, but I value education way too much to do that to myself. That being said, I do feel like a minority among my friends, since most of them disagree with traditional gender roles.

  3. What does the percentage matter? Jesus christ, if youre dating someone find out what they like. If what you want doesnt match, find someone else. I'm so sick of this bullshit idea that some women like some things and some women dont like people please just actually learn stuff about your partners instead of assuming they want/dont want flowers/diamonds/marriage.

  4. People have different definitions of traditional.

    I'm happy to clean/cook for my boyfriend, but he helps of course. I earn more than him, I have a more technical degree than him, and I'm more independent than him. But he's physically a lot stronger than me, more athletic than me, and he is taller than me.

    I want flowers/romance, and someday a diamond ring. I won't be anybody's housewife though.

    2. Now I am not saying he is a gold digger, its just that you migh wear the pants in the relationship.

      Which makes you the man with the penis and him the woman with a dick.

  5. Sometimes it sounds nice to just be a housewife. Really depends when it really comes down to it.

  7. No idea about the percentage (don't know how anyone could say really). Amongst my friend group there's a good mix.

  8. You don't really talk about something that personal unless you're really close friends.. That being said, can't say I know anyone that's a fan of traditional gender roles.

  9. I'm not sure about percentage, but, does it really matter............... I mean. What could you possibly do with it? (Assuming you're not attempting to do a statistical study from answers on OMGUW...) If you're only going to date one person at a time, they're either going to be down with highly traditional gender roles, or not, or a mix. Most women I know would like sort of a mix... They're okay with cooking and cleaning sometimes, but would also like to have a life away from their significant other, and have him/her also help out.
    Personally, as a female, I would really dig reverse gender roles in a relationship, lol. I hate cooking, cleaning, taking care of kids, etc. I think I need to find myself a spouse who's okay doing the majority of that kind of stuff.... that'd be pretty cool.
