I think over-expectations can go both ways. I don't expect any more of a man than I'm willing to do myself, or would expect of another woman.
My ex actually resented me in a lot of ways. My ex expected me to be his ATM machine the last three years of our marriage and really even before that.
Honestly, I think sometimes we allow men to think that way about women...I know I am guilty of throwing up my hands and saying the famous line "I'll just do it myself". Sometimes we do it to ourselves.
