But, Strexit, yes, you’re quite right. Working out functional roles in a gay male relationship is something you actually have to do. It doesn’t do itself.

On the other hand, what with women being routinely expected to be part of the workforce now, I’m betting plenty of young straight couples have their own roles to figure out on their relationships.
