Sara2001 Man care about the greater aspects like decisions, rules and consequences and consistency, while woman take care about the household, the family and the needs of the mans.
Taking care of the family instead of thinking about our own benefits can be very difficult ...
Elsewhere on the forum there has been talk of the education of children and which responsibilities parents and schools should share and which part of a child's education they are solely responsible for.
Sarah's quote above strikes me as lifestyle choices which, to be fair, have been common throughout most of recorded history. My guess is that these lifestyle choices were so common largely because children were indoctrinated into such lifestyles from birth. But my own feeling is that this is a tragedy!
Lifestyle choices should be just that: choices freely made when a child reaches adulthood and has enough information to make their own choices. Their own feelings about how they want to enjoy their lives should be the only influence on their choices and they should also be free to make alternate choices whenever it suits them, provided of course that such alternates do not harm anyone else.
I have nothing against relationships where a man leads and a woman takes care of him and his household provided of course that it is what they both want. But we are all different to a greater or lesser extent. Other relationships such as two women living together, two men living together, where the different responsibilities are shared to a greater or lesser extent between them, with mutual agreements are perfectly possible and are likely to bring greater happiness and pleasure to the partners. I believe society as a whole should encourage such. And people should be free to make these choices based on their own feelings and not be troubled by the hang-ups imposed on them by childhood indoctrination. They should not be made to feel guilty merely because they are different.
Thus I am strongly opposed to families raising children where lifestyle expectations are encouraged from an early age, before the child can understand the implications and while their own feelings and personalities are under developed. I am thankful that in largely secular Western societies, this has become the norm. I just wish that this attitude would propagate throughout the whole world, in the hope that humanity's happiness improves globally.
