The roles of males and females are given a large amount of respect in traditional Cambodian culture. Women typically take care of things within the home while men work outside the home and bring in the income. The family is the foundation of these men’s lives and they tend to place high value on nurturing, loyal familial relationships. This is contrast to the typical Western man who is more interested in material well-being and wealth accumulation.
