Let's be honest, emotional compatibility apart, doesn't it feel great if your man can fix the remote or your woman can cook and clean?

Comment : Aren't you talking of an ideal situation? Yes there should be understanding but that's what is so difficult in tough times.

We live in times of recession and job losses. If one of the partners (especially the man) loses his job, and suddenly the income dries up and the bills pile up, can love sustain?

Comment : If it's the first date, I would rather go dutch. Simply because on the first date, both of you are judging each other. It's natural, let's admit it. So why have any obligation? If the first date leads to more dates, I wouldn't mind if the man pays occasionally :)

We've all been on atleast one date. And it was probably a coffee shop or dine out or movie or something. Traditional 'dating rules' say the guy must bear the damages. But with changing times, is this rule changing too?

It's just a bill - not about life and death - but people do judge and what we do in certain situations can give out signals.

What do you think? What did / would you do?

Comment : I have realised one thing - there is no right or wrong when it comes to relationships. What is right in one context might be wrong in another. Everything is contextual. We exist in the grey, not the black or white.

Loving many people outside the structure of a relationship is also acceptable, if done responsibly

Comment : No, never. First and foremost, it is impossible to know the whole truth about anybody, including yourself. There are three truths - one that you know, one that others know about you (which you may not be aware of) and the one that both of you know. A relationship is essentially about two strangers coming together to lead a life together, after knowing whatever they can about one another. But can you know every single thing about your partner's past? Why and how she or he may have reacted in a particular way, during a particular time? It's fine to know everything about a partner provided your relationship is so strong that you can confidently say you won't judge him or her for his or her past actions. Can you?

We don't even know the truth about ourselves--it's too complex, we change everyday. Would I love my hubby more, would our marriage be stronger, if we knew every detail of each other? Do I really want to put the relationship under a microscope? Will my commitment be stronger because of a 3 a.m. dissection? '
