I disagree they seem very typical in the common role models of couples. Elyana is the female nurturer raising the child and desiring comfortable conditions to do it.

Riley is the male provider going out hunting (spearfishing) to provide food. When something breaks on the boat it is Riley who crawls around and gets dirty or climbs the mast.

It's not right or wrong it's just the nature of how things work out in most relationships.

The one IMO who breaks the mold is Holly on Another Adventure. A solo sailor living life as she wants with gumption and a skill set that is amazing. I doubt you'll see Elyana tearing down and rebuilding an outboard anytime soon.

I guess where we may disagree is to the typical roles. I think it may be because of our generational difference. We have many younger friends who have cast aside the old Hunter Provider/ Nuturing roles being separated between the two sexes.

I would say that Riley and Elena are following the old model of their parents but it is no longer the norm and may not even be the majority. In most of our younger friends ( under 40) both sexed work and take the burden/ responsibility of hunting/ providing . The care of their children is split by both of them. No one of them has a majority role, it is whoever it’s easier for at the time, Both parents share equal responsibility and effort. In the end run it will be more beneficial for the children , particularly the girls to see their mothers in a more all rounder role so they can emulate them growing up.

This is not an experiment but is something practiced by many cultures all over the world. It doesn’t take away from any “traditional roles” it adds roles to both sexes.

Re: Sailing La Vegabond

Husband talking to wife...

Will you have to go up the mast again?
Water is coming in. You need to look at this right now.
Which oil do you need for changing the outboard?
Do you want me to come up on deck or stay below?
Could you get us some more lobster today?
Where do you keep the snap ring pliers?
Do you really need to get all that blood in the cockpit?
