The dynamics of marriages have changed over the years. Earlier the concept was man was a provider and the woman was a nurturer. The lines have blurred. Roles and responsibilities are overlapping. Earlier values were accepted without question.
Change is a constant. Nothing remains the same. So is with relationship dynamics.
Thanks to technology, the whole world is a global village now. Exposure, education, expectations, concept of unit family and more have contributed to stress in relationship. Ironically, it is the family that is a buffer against stress.
Self has taken importance. It can be both a bane and a boon. Due to a fast paced world, in the need to carve space for self, tolerance and compassion have taken a beating. Building relationship requires patience, time and a want. It is work in progress. There is no right or wrong. Accommodation, acceptance and flexibility are some of the keys to a healthy modern relationship.
