I grew up mostly around grandparents, great aunts, and uncles etc..... needless to say the people i grew up around were much older people. When i was growing up, i noticed that the women in my family tended to stay home and take care of the house and the kids, while the men went out to work alot of hours to support their family. Usually the only time where you see the women working was when the men were a bit older and mostly had medical problems to the point where they couldn't work anymore.
Since being and living on my own, my own personal feelings have changed because i believe that if a man and a woman decide to be together and raise a family, they should take care of that responsibility 50/50 in all aspects. It doesn't take one person to make a family, so it shouldn't be one sided when taking care of it.
