And they want their husband to be a masculine guy who works hard to take care of the family. Women will work nowadays but, realistically, most Asian girls seem to entertain the idea as an ideal, loving marriage.

Plus, even among many animals, the female stays and protects/nurtures the offspring while the male hunter goes out to bring substinence back. <- I only mention this as scientific/historical data. Not my opinion on what women should do.


what about lions?

anyway its true, women need to get back in the kitchen and make me dinner...i'm hungry.

it's not that really big of a problem. studies show that the "typical" family are now just two working adults with no kids and smaller houses/apartments. if this trend continues because both people are too busy living a life to raise a family then i suppose the chores would be split quite comfortably as there is less to clean and people rarely coming home would also mean things stay clean longer. also i think if this becomes the norm then the maid service would boom. we've already seen a huge boom in maid/nanny services in north america and europe as they have become more accessible and affordable with hard working immigration

the oil prices are also contributing to the no kids style of family as the middle class, working class and those on the poverty line are starting to meld into one

its quite clear that this issue is one of the past

but to answer the thread: i don't think females should be house wives and i think the chores should be split like i do with my girlfriend.

Well,
there are some who choose to stay home
and others who'd rather suit the office more.

I think I could do both.
I don't want to work at an office,
but I would like to make money for the family
as well as take care of them as a mother.

Although,
I do want my husband to help around the house a bit.
They're his kids too.
AND it's his house / apartment (whatever) too.
If he doesn't help around the house,
I wouldn't of married him in the first place.

Yea. Lions are exceptions. It's sad that the only reason I know what you're talking about is through watching "The Lion King".

I don't want a wife who doesn't do anything. I want my wife to have a job that she wants cuz' being a woman with a drive and goal is pretty attractive; rather than someone who just wants to rely on me. But I guess I'm pretty old-fashioned and find it romantic to take care of the person I marry and be the one providing for my family. And since it's nice to have home cooked meals and have at least one parent with the kids, I want it to be the other person. Even though I love to cook; as a guy, it feels nice knowing that someone is at home preparing a meal for you. Maybe if she cooked more than I did and I did the dishes and she did most of the indoor chores since I do want her to have a job to pursue her own goals.

i think women should have the same oppertunities, buit it is nice when a mom can stay home with the kids. my mom sacrificed a lot so she could be with us and I am glad she did. However i dont beliveve this role should be forced but should be something the the husband and wife decide together.

for me personally i would probably want a part time job(the extra income will be handy when starting out) but with a part time job i can still make dinner for my husband and keep the house clean(old fashion i know)untill i have kids then i would like to be a stay at home mom until they get older.

Ya see, a lot of this stems from the guys' ego problem (which i would be more than happy to puncture at any time). They think they're so macho that they cannot do housework, because it's 'beneath' them. C'mon, the truth is, they are lazy and they don't want to do the work. So they shove it on us because, according to them 'they bring home the bacon'...the ONLY reason why guys may earn more than girls is because this society is quite sexist. If there are two candidates, a male and female with exact same qualifications, the guy will ALWAYS get higher pay and position. And why do they want to shove us back into the kitchen? Because they care for us and think we're overworked? AS IF! It is only because they're afraid that we will earn more than them, that we threaten their position. For centuries, women are taught to carefully nurture their egos, personally, i would like to deflate them and let them see the truth!

jazaleax, i would agree with you if it wasn't a horrible misrepresentation. in the past females have been giving the short end but since equal opportunities have come into the workforce it's a totally different picture and female/male ratio in high management is narrowing by the generation.

in my opinion it all depends on the situation and you really can't catagorize these kind of things because for everybody its differen't . At this point in my life i couldn't imagine trying to handle kids, working, and school. Right now i bearly have time for myself.1st off i think people need to really consider what it means to have kids and the commitment it takes. I hate to see so many kids neglected. If you can balance it all than more power to you. but i know myself and i don't think i could handle kids. i would feel bad leaving them all week. I love working and school. Some parents have to work in order to survive. It all depends. But for me i can't see myself being a stay at home mom/wife . (+ i don't think anybody would want me to i'm messy, dis organized, and can't cook) it will be better if he can or we can get someone else to do it. LOL ,

If they can cook, yes. If they can't, please stay the hell out of the kitchen and let a professional handle food safety, preparedness and service.

I think it should be a joint decision witht he man and the woman! if one likes cooking then they cookl, ones lieks cleaning they clean! if they both liek them then they share the tasks, would ensure they got done quicker as well then one person doing all the work!
