That's what I think,anyway. He gets out and works very hard. All we women do is clean,cook and watch kids. Anyone can do that.I could understand giving a woman more credit if she gets out and works, but only then. Way to go guys!

Well everyone has different pont of view in this case.He really sure goes out for work and earn money to run the family but at the same time the task of a women is not easy as well.I believe every man is the Head of a family ,because he works so hard to support his family and if woman is not there in the house,house in nothing because she take cares of everything.You can say,or what I think is,If Man is the head of the family,the woman is heart of the family.

Plus A woman can never be compare by a man.She cannot become a Head of family even though she goes out or work or if she is a working woman.She can never takes place as a head.

Alright, I guess you could say that the woman is the "heart of the family". It's been that way for years,but there are a lot more men that are stay at home dads. This would make them the "heart of the family"! Don't you think?

I can't decide if you're serious or just trying to get lots of responses by offending people. I honestly don't think gender has anything to do with how much credit people should get, and I don't believe in having a "head of the house" either. In my own relationship, my husband and I make decisions together, and neither of us has more say in anything. I could never accept less. My husband and I both work outside the home, but honestly he has more of the child care and such responsibilities most of the time just because of how our work schedules fall. However, right now I have been off work ill for a couple of weeks, and I'm finding out that I don't see how he does it! So I can't see how women who do the same thing shouldn't deserve a lot of credit for their hard work! I guess my opinions on the matter are also colored by the fact that in almost every single relationship I have seen where the "man was the head of the household" there was either abuse or severe unhappiness, so it's true that my opinions could aren't unbiased. In fact, as a child someone who should have protected me from abuse didn't do so, just because her husband was "head of the household" and therefore not to be argued with.

Yes I'm serious and I accomplished what I set out to do. I know "we" women work hard and a relationship should be on an "equal basis". I wanted to see if you guys would actually take up for your wifes(girlfriends)and give them the credit they so rightly deserve.You guys "rock"! I'm sorry that you suffered the abuse that you did.

I believe too that men should be the head of the family but to me, it doesnt mean that women cant work. Its that he was the highest authourity and the final decision would come from him. Women may suggest things or tell him what she wants to do with her life. Its also her right to think and make her decisions under the approval of the husband.

Hi,You write,It's also her right to think and make her decisions under the approval of her husband. Why should she have to have the approval of her husband to think? If it's her decision,why does she have to have the husbands approval?

Wait a minute! I am a guy. But cooking and cleaning and raising kids is work. Just because anyone could do it doesn't mean that it's importance should be disregarded. And, anyone can go out an get a job and work. All of it is important!

Ohhhh! i think you are a woman very "chauvinist". Women works hard, and your husband too. In the house live a family, and like that they are always together, don't have one to be the head, or control the others. Think more, and you will see how difficult and arduous to make homeworks...

I beg to differ with you on this matter. It should be both the husband and the wife who handles the household. I work and so does my husband. We share the duties of the house and that helps a lot in the long run. Plus, we have a partnership. It is not just one person working more than the other. Both of us put in our fair share.
