What is the Difference Between A Traditional Woman & A Modern Woman?

In the context of dating, relationships and marriage, traditional minded women tend to see family and marriage as their goal and what inspires them in life.

The Traditional Woman

Traditional women strive to have that nuclear family, a husband, children and uphold values that some people would see as old fashioned today.

Traditional women also generally tend to come from religious backgrounds.

These religious backgrounds have etched in their ideas about what a woman should value in her life and what choices she should make for her future.

Traditional minded women tend to have more conservative views too, because these conservative views often align more with family being the center of what matters in one’s life.

They also don’t tend to have issues with family set-ups that a modern woman might consider to be “patriarchal”. In fact, they might actively seek out and pursue such a dynamic for themselves in their own life.

For the very masculine men, a traditional woman is actually the picture of what makes a good girlfriend.

This doesn’t mean that a modern woman can’t be a good girlfriend, but a traditional woman appeals to traditionally masculine men due to their focus on the children, on family and on homemaking.

The Modern Woman

Modern women, at least the way a modern woman today is, would often be the opposite of that.

She may tend to idealize equality in relationships, and a modern woman might prefer to lead in the relationship, and may rather focus on career and education first before marriage and children.

For some modern women, having family and children is an option that they can leave or take and still be happy.

They also tend to be a lot more liberal in their views. Modern women can still be religious or spiritual to an extent, but their view on marriage, relationships, and the world aren’t dictated by those more conservative ideals.

If you’re a modern woman who is feeling lost in this era of confusing modern dating, have faith. Here are some traditional dating rules that still work.
