It used to be that the norm was two people meeting, marrying and raising children. The order of this seems to have changed greatly in recent years, but there are even more changes in how relationships are conducted in the modern world. The man used to be the main breadwinner, and the woman would forego her career to stay home and raise their children. Modern women are determined to advance their careers, and now many men stay home to raise the children. All of these changing relationship roles can be confusing to some, but others cherish them as a lifestyle that suits their needs.
The changing relationship roles of the modern world were difficult to put in place, and some people still have difficulty accepting them. Those with an old-fashioned outlook on life look down on any man who does not support his family financially, and they believe a woman who leaves her children for a real career is not a caring mother.
