Your Role In Your Family

What role/s do you and your s/o play in your family (breadwinner, family caretaker, ect.)?

Are you comfortable with these roles? Why or why not?

Is the role you play now the one you had planned to before starting a family?

How important do you feel your role is in relation to the functionality of your family?

Breadwinner, mom, dad, etc etc etc


Single mom :-)

No choice but to be comfortable with it.

No, of course I didn't plan this when I was starting my family.

I'm the manager. I oversee the finances, I organize everything and everyone and delegate responsibilities. My husband is the financial supporter. It's now how I planned it, but for now it works for us.

I am a SAHM so I guess I am the caretaker, the cook, etc.  All those things that moms generally do.  DH is the breadwinner.  I am comfortable with our positions.  Before I had kids I probably would have said I would not like being a SAHM but now that I have kids I love it.  DH is glad I can stay home to take care of our house and our kids.  I think DH and I are equally important. Without me he wouldn't be able to work without paying someone to take care of his kids and without him I would not be able to stay home and raise our kids the way I want.

In vain he thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts.

I do everything but pay bills(cook , clean, bathe kids, walk dog,laundry)

I'm cool with it and I'm really trying to enjoy it


No, I planned on being a police officer and having kids later

My role is important to my kids, I know SO loves me too

I do it all. No I hoped to have a healthy marriage and stay married and raise our kids. But he rather drink and do drugs so bye bye to him.

We are both the caretakers of our kids, we both earn money, we both take care of the house.

I'm the mom, the wife and the teacher. I also work part time to help stretch my husband's income a little.  (he gets paid every two weeks, I get paid every week.  My little bit of money helps us not live pay check to pay check)  I love my life :-)

I do everything except bring home the bacon.

It works for us and I like it.

We're very traditional. DH works and I am a SAHM. Yes, we're very comfortable with our roles and the part we play in our family.

I can't imagine our family functioning in any other way actually. I can't imagine having to juggle two careers with the family responsibilities also.
