Is your father capable of doing the duties of your mother, and vice versa?

I admire my parents for they help each other while we grow. They share duties and responsibilities and they are able to do the duties of their partners. I admire them because nowadays fathers only wants working outdoor. They usually do not share in the household chores, while mothers are expected to only stay at home and do household works. My parents are good because they know how to give and take. They understand each other and know each other's needs. That's why my father works both at home and office, as well as my mom. Aren't they great! How about your parents. Share your story...

I think I have to answer YES. Traditionally, fathers had to do work away from home to earn, while mothers had to stay at home and tend to their children. But in my case, my mom had to work out of the country, so we were left with our dad. For 5 (FIVE!!!) years that my mom wasn't able to come home, my dad played the role of a father and mother to us. Going to work during the day, then coming home early to check on us. I really can say he did a great job of raising the four of us.

I believe that there is equality in the world in such a way that a father can do duties a mother does and as you asked ..vise versa.It is rooted in he type of relationship and agreement between both partners. Although some societies tend to have their norm of what a father or mother would do, now a days the barrier has been broken because of the necessity to have a dual income family. They have to be flexible because both of them are already out earning at their own time and it would be pretty tiring for a wife to do both the household chore and earning at one run.So there has o be a logical agreement of sharing the other duties a family. In other words they both can do duties interchangeably.

hei there, it's nice that you're parents are both equal in doing everything.. here, i can say that my mom is more capable in doing everything, including my father's thing, she's capable in doing the house works, cooking, cleaning, running the family business, and more.. i'm so proud of her, she's the real superwoman ever to me :) but too bad, this inequality sometimes cause some argues in the house.. anyway, thanks! :)

I too have the same kind of parents when it comes to working and earning for the family. I do love them so much considering that despite the hard times we been through, they were able to provide us with the basic needs. Although it was really my father who did more of the outside work and my mom did more of the work at home. Nevertheless, both of them have helped each other and I think that is what makes them great and special.
