My girlfriend and I are having some friction because of our cultural clash. She's traditional, and wants a 50's style marriage: man makes the money, man handles the car and house, and woman cooks, cleans, and handles children and budget. She was raised christian and her views come from the bible that women are supposed to be subservient to men. I'm modern and athiest, and was raised that men and women are equal and share all responsibility and neither sex is head of the house. I'm not comfortable being "in charge", and I really don't like her pawning her responsibilities to her car and things off on me. I find the christian's view of marriage as degrading to women as they find the islamic view of it and I believe that degrading either sex degrades society as a whole. If we have children, I want them taught that men and women are equal. Any advice for how to compromise on cultural issues?
