A woman has sparked a lively debate online after running a poll on whether women think it’s ‘sexier for their partner to be the financial breadwinner, or split the bills with them.

Juliana Stewart, from London, who has been married for a year, took to her Twitter account @JulianaStewart_ to ask other women whether they preferred a traditional or modern approach to relationships.

She wrote: ‘Ladies, what’s sexier?

‘A 50/50 relationship is when you split the bills, date nights, holidays, living arrangements, everything. A man who provides means you can work if you want to but don’t have to, he knows how to hold it down.’

Meanwhile, just under 37 percent voted for a more modern ’50/50′ relationship online.

Slamming the concept of sharing bills, one Twitter user wrote: ‘Honestly, I could never do 50/50. It just doesn’t make me see him as a leader or a husband in any sense.

Agreeing, another said: ‘The women actually picked the first choice? In what world.’

‘Definitely, a man that provides!’ one woman tweeted, while another wrote: ‘If you want kids and to raise them yourself it is definitely more appealing to have a man who is financially capable and generous.

‘I made more money than my husband but still able to SAH (sic). His willingness to take that on was super sexy and I couldn’t wait to have babies with him.’

But others reasoned that it depends on the circumstances, with one man saying: ‘Depends on if you’re raising my kids and taking care of the home.’

Another husband added: ‘It’s a strange split. In any relationship you want to feel the other is contributing, however, it depends on the couple. I provide for my wife so she can stay home with the kids, homeschool them, cook, clean, etc. I tend to all the fixing of things, hard labor, etc.’

And some women were against the idea, arguing for equality.

One woman wrote: ‘I can provide for myself and I expect the same from my man. I’m happy to contribute to what we have/do together because I see us as a team in that respect.’

Another said: ‘When things are provided for me I tend to grow bored and then I create chaos or something that needs care. I need to generate my own life with my creations.’

Elsewhere a man argued: ‘That’s sad. But what do they bring to the table? Hopefully more than an exterior. Glad I’ve already met my soulmate cause dating poll doesn’t look good.’

And one husband claimed: ‘That arrangement only works if the woman provides something as well. Otherwise, she is just leeching off the man. The woman must be the homemaker and sexual partner if she expects the man to provide. Everything costs something and no one deserves a free ride’.
