      Mods: This could be a poll.

      Inspired by TLK's thread, ladies would/ do you take advantage of the changing norms of our society and take full responsibility of the household financially.

      Would you be willing to handover the responsibility of the children, home, and parents to your husband, while you worked 60+ hours/week?

      And to be very honest, i dont understand the buzz about working women. Is it only about being at par with the men? do we really need to be doing same things as them to be at par with them? why take everything as a competition.

      I can understand if the women is career oriented then sure by all means go ahead with it but just learn to strike your balance between your home and career. But if its only abt proving anyone that you can also do it, then i think its a shame because perhaps a housewife has the toughest job of all and i have my utmost respect for them.

      Gaia, you should formulate the question so guys can also answer. Would they want their wives to be the breadwinner or not?
      My father believed that if the world found out who I really was they'd reject me out of fear.

      no.
      I love my freedom so unless it's my own business or I have the option of doing part time work and flexible hours I won't. (I'm already helping out with hubby's business btw)

      I have no problems with working 60+ (which I already do) but taking financial responsibility has a lot more than just working and bringing home a pay check.

      It's making key decisions for the future for the entire family, investing, determining where you live, managing your assets, balancing needs versus wants, saving for retirement and education, researching amenities like insurance, health-care, transportation and so much more.

      It's planning a future for you entire household and taking the decisions to get you there.

      That part I don't want to do. I would have an issue giving up control of kids.

      A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

      Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance or a stranger.

      No I will not want to be the primary breadwinner... I think I'm better off having a part time job and being a stay home mommy for the rest of the time. But that's just me.

      Okay, so if I had a choice, no, I'd rather not be the primary earner in the family. But if we needed it, I'd have no problem stepping up and providing the livelihood for the family.

      I would always like to work (even if it's part-time) since I need to be financially independent and the second income always helps the household - but like NJGal said, the sole responsibility is quite daunting and is an enormous responsibility.

      I agree, these are key responsibilities which lie on the shoulders of the breadwinner. So are women not ready or don't want to be ready to take such responsibilities?

      And If that's so, is it really worth anything in the long-run for women to fight for their careers and try to pass the glass ceiling? I'm not so sure.

      For a career oriented women to balance her home and career doesn't really equal being at par with men, right? Instead, it puts more responsibility on the woman, while nothing changed for the man.

      I guess it would be much different if women reached for long-term careers and did housework, while men, also on top of their careers also helped out domestically.

      I don't mind women working but I feel their income should only be an added luxury and nothing more, I should be able to take financial responsibility of the family on my own.

      I want to work, even if part time. Chances are I will bring in equal income if not more. But I still do not wish to be the primary bread winner because when it comes to raising kids I know I have more to contribute.

      Secondly, most men would have their ego hurt in this situation. That, of course, would be bad for the marriage.

      Third, I need time to maintain myself. You know, those moochein and stuff that bother our model-enamored desi men.

      I do not have a problem with traditional gender roles. It makes things easier.
