With changing times, the mindsets of couples have also changed. There was a time when society considered a man as the provider and head of the family. Women were expected to stay at home, take care of children and manage the household. A women was only allowed to work under certain special circumstances.
Couples these days support the concept of an egalitarian society where men and women are treated equally. Men have evolved and consider women as their equals. The concept of marriage has evolved accordingly.
