The attitudes of years ago are based on ignorance anyway. The concept of grown men acting like overgrown babies, expecting everything done for them is utterly ridiculous and offensive in any era.
A relationship based on genuine love and affection is much more worthwhile and sincere.

Of course that is true Ellie.

Just a shame that in these modern times many country's still see woman(and children)as second class.....or less than second class.

I don't think even in olden days all men felt like that. My grandfather did darning, knitting and would get down on his knees and scrub the floor when necessary.

There was never a division in their house as to who did what. My other grandfather was the opposite even insisted my grandmother pour his tea and butter his bread. The first grandfather was a quarryman, the second, the chauvinist, an electrician, so it wasn't even the hardworking manual labourer feeling too tired to help.

In farming communities couples were often accustomed to working together, especially lambing and harvest and market day. So I think you will always get chauvinists and you will always get team players like my husband. There are some pretty formidable women too to be fair that push their husbands into doing longer hours than is good for their health.

That is very true.

My anger is directed at country's ware religion and culture make a woman/childs life drudgery.....and its about time the western world made it clear that all citizens of the world are equall....after all most of us who had family in the past who died for that belief.

Modern day woman wouldn't accept what they used to from their husbands of say 200 years ago, men were quite often just treating them like slaves back then, no real love or romance, i prefer the way we are are now, sweet talk them and let them know we love them.:)
As i age more i seem to realise that what you put into a relationship is what you get out of it. My wife and i are very close but 35 years ago we were both trying to wear the pants, wish we had woken up earlier, my wife and i both regret we didn't start off on the right foot, she is a very special girl:)
