As women alot of pressure falls on us. We are born to give birth to beautiful beings, to worry about our love ones, to shape our future and keep it clean. Although its a miracle to create life we are taken for granted by everyone even our significant other. The task of making food has become a chore. It is expected by atleast 80% of women wheather they are homemakers or just getting home from work ( the other 20% have awsome husbands). Looking after our children has also become the sole responsibility of us women. We are expected to clean them, to play with them, to feed them , disaplain them, comfort them and put them to bed. And what does the males our childrens father do? Well while you are busy sweating they are watching tv, or playing with their starwars crap in the basement while the laundry sits and wait for you to do them. As a homemaker everything falls on me. My husband works in the basement but when I go down there it seems he is eating and checking out his starwars stuff but he still gets a paycheck and I dont.He only lifts a finger when I freek out and then I am labled the b word. I clean every morning, do errans with my daughter, cook breakfast, lunch and dinner,mow the lawn 3 times a week,tidy up outside and oh yea make time to play dressup. When is this enough? Now. I have put my foot down and made a stand. As long as we are home together and we have a daughter he is to help.By doing laundry, tiding up her toys with her, cleaning up after himself and put her to bed with me. Its only been a week to its nice so far.

women are really stronger than man in some aspect though we are weak compare to man in strength.we have to cook and take care of our children and other family members.if we have our work,we are very busy every day.if we are lucky to find good husband,they would help us .most of us would enjoy our " work" both in our family and outside.

So zhouxi, getting good husbands is of all luck? Why, can not make your bad husband a good one with your love and care? In my opinion most men turn bad husband only because of their spouse. lol Basically all are good husbands and good wives. Circumstances make some worse. That is the only difference. What say?

I feel I am a strong women because I can able to do 24 hours of house hold work by myself without lending any help from others. I never fail to do my responsibility ......I am happy with what I am doing and I never regret what I do.

As being a women we had a lots of responsibilities and duties. Everyone knows that we are bone to give birth to beautiful beings, to love our ones,love and care and to lead our future bright. It is difficult to create our life. The responsibility of women is look after house,children, husband and for family. women have a lots of work to do and there should be equal love to all. As a women everything falls on me. I am happy to born as women because as being a women we are getting lots of love and care from our husband,family and from my children.I use to get up early in the morning and i have to make everything ready for my children or my family.When my children go school or with friend i use to advise because my child will spoil and there is no respect of being mother. I have to guide my children each an every step. I am very happy with my family

Every time something goes wrong, i get depressed and sometimes i also cry, and nothing and noone could make me feel better, and i have so many dark thoughts, that i am scared of myself. But after i calm down, all by myself, i console myself, and move on. I had so much sorrow in my life, but it passed, and i am still ok, and i think these things make me a strong person.

Hi, nicole0114. You are very strong! Trust me you are! Your husband should just help you more around the house and with your kids too. My husband sometimes does many things at home. He will wash the dishes, mop the kitchen and living room floors. And he will make the bed and take out the trash. I may do most of the work at home, but he does take the time to at least do something. You are more stronger than you think! Who do you know can take care of your home and children like you can?? Your husband is being lazy and he needs to stop calling you a b****! You are his wife and he should treat you like you are!

Hi, Since time immemorial women are the center of a family around which everything else revolves round. A home is not a home without a woman. They know much better than men as to how to keep the string of family relation intact. They are the charm of the household. This would undoubtedly a devil seized mind that thinks women are weak. This is, however, a fact that in most countries women do not enjoy the freedom as men do. The culture thing pops up a lot with them. That they are the sole lots to keep culture and other stuff alive. And I feel this is nothing but a trick played by men. what is all permissible for men is not with women. the ghost of restrictions hurdles their way and they are stuck between to or not to be. I am nor pro women nor men but looking at the both sides of the coins. If a women can do the laundry and cooking stuff why not a man? why this discrimination is that men are more into their business than most women. In the families where both the husband and wife are in service works are divided so that they are able to push themselves out in time. Or there are a couple of servants to do the job. In the olden day almost all women were a home and did the household chores and thus the trend transcended on them likewise. Most men are taking advantage of that only. But women are much stronger than men if seen on the emotional level.
