Study Finds Chivalry Is Not Dead

A new study points out going halfsies on a check isn't all too common anymore. Here's "Fox & Friends" with the details: 'Chivalry is not dead, ladies. According to a new study, most men still pay for women on their first dates.'

Yep -- 84 percent of men are picking up the first check, and it doesn't stop there. The study surveyed 17,000 people and found 58 percent of women say men still paid the bill even later in the relationship.

Daily Mail reports that some women aren't complaining: 'Despite more than half of women at least offering to pay, 39 percent of them secretly hoped their partner would reject the suggestion.'

But as WJXT reports, women shouldn't get too comfortable.

'Although three quarters of the men felt guilty accepting women's money, over 44 percent said they'd stop dating a woman who never paid.'

Dr. Frederick, an assistant psychology professor who lead the study, told The Globe and Mail the reason for the study is ' ... to understand why some gendered practices are more resistant to change than others.'

What's your take? Is it polite for a man to pay, or does embracing 'chivalry' just look a lot like embracing sexism?
