Sterotyping-Do you do it?

Sterotyping-Do you do it?

All of us have different views on what a marriage should be and how each of the partners should act and duties that we all have.

My thinking is-I don't work. I stay at home and take care of the baby while hubby busts his ass for very little pay all morning. My thinking-Its my JOB and obligation to make sure that when he is home, he is comfy and fed and taken care of. Now mind you, he DOES have responsibilities at home. Just because he works doesn't mean he doesn't have to help with baby girl, take out garbage/recycle or do a few things around the house when I am dead tired. But, I take into consideration that he may need a nap from time to time, and leave him be.

However, some people see this as a degrading way to women, to assume that we are left home to be the "slaves". Now, for the record-I choose/want to stay home. I love being a stay at home mom. As long as the bills are paid. In the event that money needs to be made, I have no issue with helping with that.

So Im wondering-What are your thoughts on a relationship and who does what in your home. Do you feel that women should HAVE to stay home? Or do you feel that its degrading to women to assume that our position is in the home. ?

Different choices make sense for different families. There is no one right way to be a family. I'm just greatful that we have so many options!

Whatever makes you happy really. I like to bake and cook more than my girlfriend, for example. It makes more sense to do what makes you happy than what other people want.

I opinion on marriages and each persons role is that each person needs to be there for the other, do what they can to help in ANY way they are able (financially, chores, emotionally, and to work together on solutions). I do not believe in set roles for married people. Each person should contribute to the relationship in whatever area works best for them.
