In a recent survey in Canada by the research firm Ipsos-Reid, more than 25 percent of fathers aged 18 to 34 identify with Homer Simpson when they're talking to their kids about a difficult subject, and almost 20 percent of adult children in the same age range associate their own father with Homer. Here are five of the lessons I learned on my journey for wisdom on what a man in a relationship should be: Lesson #1: Take responsibility Learn from Adam.

With so many confusing ideas, I started looking for wisdom on what a man should be in a relationship. Don't do things you know are wrong and then blame others.

It is inevitable that there will be times of sadness, tension, or outright anger between you and your partner.

Disagreements in a relationship are not only normal but, if constructively resolved, actually strengthen the relationship.A man needs to make decisions and take responsibility for the outcome.If he's reluctant to make decisions, she may resent him.Every few years, the media tells us new ideas about what a man should be. He punishes Adam for eating the fruit, and for not using his own judgment.For a while there was "sensitive new age guy." Then there was "metrosexual" and advice that men need to develop their feminine side. I looked in the commentary at the bottom of the page which quoted the Talmud, "If the man is worthy, the woman will be his helper; if he is not worthy, she will be against him."
