    Ah, yes, i love a good gender stereotype. -_-

    Maybe instead, before you cheat on your spouse, think of your values and how you don't want to hurt another human being, rather than just weighing potential repercussions.

    But anyway...

    Another con Im thinking of is decision making.

    While it can be great to consult someone before making decisions (especially if the other person is more wise about the subject) it seems there would be times it would be frustrating to have to consult someone else who isn’t a strong decision maker/action taker on certain areas.

    Not necessarily.

    Kinda hard not to do when using a simple rhyming phrase. But it'll keep you off the waitress at that greasy spoon that I mentioned.

    That's true! I've found that my relationships usually have a natural balance in that regard, but i could imagine issues coming up around kids, for example.

    There are a lot of creative ways of getting around potential issues. You might think this is weird, but my partner and i buy groceries separately to avoid any potential disagreements about inequalities in what was purchased. We share the groceries once we purchase them, but we purchase groceries separately. For example, i don't drink at all, and i don't eat any sugar, so it'd be weird to me if we bought a cart full of groceries together, including a six-pack of beer and an apple pie, when i won't be consuming either of those things. I don't know if that makes any sense the way I'm explaining it, lol. We have a shared checking account that we put money into when we pay shared bills, like the mortgage and utilities, but stuff like food, personal purchases, and entertainment are personal expenses that we wouldn't use our shared account for.

    I've never been in that situation. My ex made more money than I, but i always had my own money, and we split bills equally (we didn't share finances whatsoever). I can imagine that i would feel very disempowered and paranoid if i didn't have my own source of income, and were also unmarried.
    I agree with you, and that's why I made the disclaimer that my comment only applies when there is a significant discrepancy in income levels.

    Dancers make great income, so, most of the time, it would not apply to dancers, unless a dancer quits dancing due to pressure from her SO or because she gets pregnant and wants to focus on her baby. (I'm saying, if she stops dancing. I'm not saying she should.) Then, she is giving up a lot significant earning potential. She will not get compensate for that, if the couple is just co-habitating, and they break up 5, 10, 15 years later, etc.
