Despite our 21st-century perspective of gender equality, there are many relationships where typical “male” and typical “female” roles and expectations lurk in the background.

Nowadays women are spreading their wings, becoming career professionals and top-notch earners like never before. Traditional roles in any given relationship may need to be re-thought.

Women are becoming more financially savvy than ever before.
