The survey, which was aimed at gauging what role money plays in relationships, has shown that the idea of men as breadwinners hasn't gone away.

Otago University gender studies association professor Chris Brickell said that most households rely on both partners working, but the survey revealed that many women still believed men should earn the bulk of the income.
