I grew up in the Sixties and therefore am the last generation to grow up pre Women's Lib. Don't get me wrong I don't want to go back to unequal rights but I look at young women today and can't get over some of them. My upbringing taught me that marriage was a public/domestic sphere partnership. The man going to work and the woman being in charge of the home. I know things have changed these days and woman go to work full time too so both have to pull their weight at home but I'm talking about women who don't work whilst their husbands do.
I know one family where the mother drops the children off at school then spends the next six hours doing absolutely nothing. The house is a filthy tip. Her husband tries to clean up before he goes to work then does more when he gets home but he's fighting a losing battle and the poor man is exhausted.
I can't help thinking the is so wrong. If a man works and his wife doesn't the he shouldn't have to do much of the day to day running of the house. Surely that's the woman's job. She says he makes a mess too so he can clean up. But equally she makes a mess and doesn't clean up.
Is it my age that makes me cross at her attitude or her attitude itself?
