when a man and a woman share an umbrella, who should be holding the umbrella?
i have observed that generally, among senior citizens, the man is likely to hold the umbrella up for his partner. however, for the younger people, i have come across a mix: sometimes it is the woman though most times it is the man.
when i am with my wife, i am normally the (up)holder of the umbrella unless my two hands are full. with other women, it depends on whom i am with.
