“The good news is that the two of you are in it as a team,” says Lucas. “These two styles can provide the fuel for shifting those old, less-than-optimal attachment styles into much healthier ones, leading to a relationship that’s better than it ever was.”

Translation: "Do what works for you both, and to hell with what societal mores say is 'normal', because 'normal' doesn't exist. Negotiate the stuff that's important to you and remember that a true negotiation is a two-way street. Love often. "
We've been happily married for 23 years. We are both lucky.

As a female I find it attractive when a guy will do laundry, clean or cook something that doesn't require a grill and still do the masculine type things.
My fiancee helps with laundry and I love it! I don't mind cleaning or cooking but laundry isn't my favorite. He is very helpful in the kitchen and can cook, which is also a turn on for me. I can definitely cook so it's nice to have someone who is interested and can contribute as well.
I might be different than the "norm" but I find things like this and intelligence to be very attractive and also a turn on. So for me they would get more sex.
