    Choosing to rely on someone else is not strength. That’s being in a relationship. When we’re committed to someone, we all rely on each other for different things at different times. The implication of this article seems to be that there is some special strength in accepting a woman’s traditional role in a male/female relationship as opposed to simply working toward making the best use of each of your actual strengths to better succeed in life.

    If you feel that being dependent is freeing in some way, that’s fine. If that’s the life you want to live, no problem. Acting as though it shows your strength, however, seems disingenuous. You can manage a household and be the primary support structure for the household and still contribute financially to the family – or, better yet, you can *both* contribute to all of the roles. It depends on how you define “strength”, of course, but the latter seems to me to require more strength from everyone involved, and leaves neither party absolutely unequipped to support the family if the other is lost. To each their own.
