sit on their ass when they get home
expect to be waited on hand and foot.
This was my experience in a straight relationship. It was how my dad treated my mom. I know gay/lesbian relationships are different,and I feel it is much more egalitarian. She still makes more than I do, but doesn't feel that because of that fact that she has the right to hold it over my head and expect special treatment.
Luckily, this has not been my experience with marriage.
I think that's changing though... responsibility is being divided.
This is how it is for us. Like I've said before, we don't follow society's typical gender roles. We take turns cooking and we both clean together. I have a wonderful husband
