I think this essay dealt with what a lot of people especially women were/are going through. Women today want to be able to do it all; to have a job, to be a mother, to be a wife, to be everything. However for a woman to be able to do all of these society needs to change. Men now are having to give up freedoms from holding the job and leaving women to do all of the housework and child raising. I think it is unfair that women are put into that situation, and have others assume that that will be there job. However this only means to marriages that they possibly might have to share some duties in the home. Why is this such a big deal? I think a marriage should be based upon more than just positions in the relationship but rather be based upon a support network. I mean isn't that what marriage is? A relationship to support one another through everything? So if they are to support each other through everything then...why is a woman having a job and taking care of children a big deal?

Agenda Item- Are marriages really based upon positions in this time period?? Or is that just an excuse for a poor relationship?
I think marriages are based on this time period. Everyone needs to realize that times are changing and with that, roles in a marriage are changing. People need to accept that their traditional roles might not be the roles in their marriage.
Jen, i would definitely say that marriages are mostly based upon companionship. People are not even getting married for the love anymore. They feel that since there is something called a divorce; if the relationship does not work out, they can always get a divorce. That is definitely how it should be but unfortunately, it is
POOR RELATIONSHIPS FOR SURE! people are just to damn lazy to work for anything anymore and its just easy to say "ALRIGHT THATS IT! I WANT A DIVORCE"... I believe every women has the right to have a dream and they can do it all because we are women HEAR US ROAR! although I do not believe that stay at home moms are bad people and its a bad thing or that they are worthless that the "just" take care of the kids... dude thats a harder job then working out in the world. but mad props to the mom who can take care of the kids while having a full time job... but madder props to the family whose both parents take care of the kids and have full time jobs... My parents are so freaking awesome!
