I am young (in my 20's) and I believe that a woman's place is "in the kitchen" so-to-speak. My grandparent's are about to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. That is a really long time to spend with one person. They have never spent a night apart. My grandmother's job is to take care of the house and anything in it, including her man. My grandfather was always the one to work, he worked one job his entire life and retired from that job. They are set financially. He did his part by providing my grandmother with the life she deserved. Everyday she gets up early makes his coffee, turns on the t.v. for him. Get's him up and dressed for whatever he has planned that day (most likely doing something on the farm or hunting). She cooks breakfast, lunch and dinner, does laundry, cleans and so much more all in a days work. They are the happiest couple I have ever seen. My parent's have been married for going on 35 years and are following in my grandparents footsteps. I have never heard my mother or my grandmother complain or argue with their husbands.
My husband and I married 5 years ago and have not had a single argument about anything. You want to know the secret to a happy marriage? Know your place!
When I have a daughter I will hope she is as smart as all the other women in this family.
The husbands job is to provide the best life possible while the wifes job is to make the husbands life less stressful and take care of the household and children.
