It's always a good idea to pay attention to the balance of power in a relationship. By that I mean it's important to make sure that you're not giving too much, or receiving too little. And the same goes for your partner. This can rarely happen when you have a high standard for yourself, and an appropriate boundary for your partner. Women by nature are caregivers and nurturers. I see women do so much more in the relationship than their men do. That's when the scales are imbalanced and you need to pull back and allow your man to step up.
