I mean, from the point of starting to date, to actually getting married and still keeping up with the things, who has the pressure of keeping relationship the way it should be?
Most Helpful Girl
In the beginning I think it's clearly men but that shifts a few years (sometimes month) into the relationship, especially after getting married and having children. Often women work full time these days will still doing the majority of house work and watching children. Society is tough on women aging, it seems like a lot of old men think they can land women in their 20s now. True or not, it puts enormous pressure on women to look as thin and young as possible. Society is way easier on men aging and getting bigger, which ironic because it's easier for them to stay slim and they tend to age better. And people are also way kinder to men who get divorced at that age or are single parents
And even without all that it seem like once the relationship is established girl are expected to do more work on it emotionally and sacrifice more for it than men are1
