  • I don't think there should be "roles" for men and women. It's not the 50s anymore and thank God! You wouldn't see me staying home all day and waiting on my husband hand and foot when he got home from work! We have an equal partnership and share household chores AND child rearing duties, and THAT is how I think it should be.

  • There are no roles. There are partnerships. It's crucial to the success of a relationship and/or marriage.

  • Yes. I think there has been a deliberate attempt to blur the distinction between the sexes. It is evident in the way people dress, job roles, even the way households are run. I am all for cooperation and for equality of treatment, but I also love that men are uniquely men and women are uniquely women. When both man and wife have firmly grasped who they are and what their roles are, that is a recipe for indescribable happiness and contentment.

  • As long as everything gets done,who cares?I say if the job doesn't require a penis or vagina to do it,either can do it!

  • Whether or not there should be roles, the fact remains they exist. I think they have blurred some...and it is a positive thing. I know families come in all shapes and sizes too. But I have 5 kids and I know that for my boys there comes a time when even if I am super mom, I am no replacement for a penis! I am not a man and I am glad my boys have a dad to deal with men issues. Same goes for dad and our girls. I can toss a football and he can go to ballet lessons, but I am glad they have both parents, it is ideal. THIS IS NOT TO SAY SINGLE OR SAME SEX COUPLES CANNOT RAISE PERFECTLY HAPPY AND HEALTHY KIDS! So no one get your panties in a bunch.  In the work place things are moving along but slowly.  I think a female cop or construction worker is awesome!
