In a growing world where roles are becoming less and less clear…
In our grandparents and great grandparents and even some of our parents days…men were men and women were women. In everyday life women had their roles and men had their roles.
It’s just how it was. Men worked and brought home the money to take care of the family. Men were the head of the household and women stayed home and took care of the home, watched the children and cooked.
In today’s world that is a rarity. If you don’t believe in roles and such that’s great too. This post is in no way against you. I’m just throwing that out there. This is my own opinion that I’m am entitled to.
I had a friend suggest this subject(thank you by the way..because I’ve been dying on the inside all day long).
She also threw out there if women should pick up the tab on the first date..and not only the first date but any dates.
Here’s my thing. I don’t usually personally pick up the tab. In fact personally I never have on “dates”. If a man made me pay for us both on the first date I just wouldn’t really give him a second thought. I guess that’s just how I was raised. Maybe I’m a little old school but I believe that’s the man job.
If you’re into that then by all means that’s great. Personally, I’m not. And it’s not that I don’t want to Pay for anything. If we have been dating a while…I would love to help out. I will offser to stop on the way home from work and pick up food or even stop, buy food, and go home and cook. I work, therefore I can contribute.
I believe if I’m in a relationship with someone and I am working. I’ll help. I’ll help with bills. I will pay for as much as I can and even help save money. That’s who I am and how I am. I help where I can.
Now, if I’m helping with money and I’m working full time as well. I expect the person I am dating to help around the house. Help keep it clean and tidy.
If I’m not working and the person I’m in a relationship is the only one working..my sole job is to cook, clean, and take care of the house.
So, yes, I do believe in roles.
In a society where genders are fading…I fully believe in male and female. If you believe that you were born a female in a males body…that’s you…not me. I don’t have to believe or have the same beliefs as everyone in th world. That’s what makes America great. FREEDOM. I have the freedom to believe what I wish. I believe a female is a female and a male is a male.
Since I believe in roles..Does this make women any less equal to men? No way.
I believe just as much that a man can be a stay at home dad as well. So, the same goes for stay at home men as well. Men, if you stay at home and don’t work…you should contribute more to keeping the house clean and cooking and such. That’s again, my opinion. I do believe roles can be reversed. As I said, I believe in stay at home dads too.
I do however love when a man pays for dates, opens doors, and holds my hand.
Maybe I’m old fashion. I love the idea of stay at home mother and working husband.
I love the idea of a man taking care of the family and the wife taking care of the husband, house, and children.
I just love the old fashion “roles” of men and women. I just do. At the same time I love how this day and age allows me to be an independent women as well.
I just do.
I do also like the way women are equal to men in the world these days.
I would call what I believe in a remix belief of roles. Because I believe in the roles but I love the fact that women are equal to men.
I love the opportunities women have these days. I love how women can be career women and be successful without a man. I love that they can be stay at home moms and respected and loved and supported by their men. I love how we as women have such great opportunities in today’s world in the United States.
Some places are not so lucky. And I refuse to take that for granted.
So, there you have it folks. My take on male/female roles these days.
