I'm not sure it has anything to do with weak.
wrong choice of words on my part.
The tradition in the US used to be one of the woman takes care of the house and husband (every see any of those old TV shows from the 50's and early 60's) and the husband brings home the "bread".
That was the tradition in most countries, although in Poland it seems women became a mores substantial part of the workforce sooner than in the US.
Then everything changed and now the woman doesn't want to seem to "cater" to her man and she can provide for herself - thank you very much
Catering might be the right word, and I see nothing wrong with it, if it's mutual. Sometimes sharing the same chores of the day, other times dividing them somewhat fairly.
In reality I don't think there is so much difference between a Polish and an American woman. Perhaps the difference is between American and Polish man. Neither is better or worse than the other. They cope the best way they can ;)
Btw, the original poster's relationship is blatantly dysfunctional .
