Yes, men should pay for everything or he won't take his dining partner seriously

Stomper Lina feels that tradition still holds and men should pay, to show his sincerity for a woman.
This is her entry for this month's What Say You topic, 'In this day and age, are men still expected to pay for everything in a relationship?'

I think Stomp is either not true blue S'porean or either losing it.
If we are talking about a gentlemen who is seriously pursuing a lady, and continuously paying for everything, to the lady she knows for sure that this man is serious and very keen on her.
If we practice pay on-DUTCH at courtship stage, I don't think guys would take his dining partner seriously anymore. The fact that he has to pay that he tends to be very calculative and specifically generous to THE ONE that he likes or misses THE MOST.

Where is the so call Feminist? In the past, guys family pay everything for the wedding and providing house. However these days because of both man and women have independent income and also the high property rise and wedding costs, most couple split 50/50. That's after man and women committed to "till death do us apart thingy.."

I don't know why would Stomp make such a fuss about man paying all during courtship. Can you relate similar case in western world when the common norm practice FREE SEX n now no men want to get married because they do not want to take the FULL RESPONSIBILITY.

Relax STOMP! Some things are better left as traditions for a good old fashion reason that work on most couples. Yes I agree Asian world is changing. The fact that we are still way better than the west in terms of marriage rate is because we HOLD OLD VALUES. I agree divorce rate is increasing however the successful marriages are still way beyond 80%. Yes more choose to be singles but let's just leave them alone for now. You'll never know.
