A Man's Laziness or a Woman's Servitude

May 27, 2008
In modern society, most families require a dual income to maintain a higher quality of life. In many households, women want the association of prestige and work related benefits of going off to work everyday. Men, who have since the down of time been the ultimate providers, are only recently being forced to change their views on male and female roles in a relationship. In many cases, men, who are naturally attuned to coming home and kicking back after a day at the office or on the job, are suddenly seen as lazy while their behavior is still considered appropriate in other cultures that revolve the process of survival around the masculine need to hunt and rest.

Women have been striving to 'have it all' for the last two or three generations. Having it all means having a family, a home, success both in and out of the workplace, and of course a career that is removed from the home and family. This has forced a new line of thought into the traditional roles that men and women had once defined themselves by for centuries. The new division of labor requires more from men.

We live in a free world and we all have the power of choice. For some men, choosing to integrate slowly back into the family has been met with resistance. The greatest struggle men and women face when trying to balance out family and careers is a simple lack of respect or understanding for each other's daily business. Mothers who stay at home all day are working just as hard, however, having a fitful two year old shoved in your face upon walking in the door might not go over well if you need ten minutes or half an hour to unwind before jumping into the next family task.

Men are often seen as lazy when they take a little time to unwind before becoming involved in family chores and responsibility while women immediately take on the role of the servant. Appreciating that the other one has worked hard throughout the day and each one needs to alleviate their stress and feel supported in various ways that may differ is one of the keys to easier transitions and better division of labor.

A simple appreciation for each position in the household, general respect for boundaries, and communication about daily needs and routines can alleviate a lot of the stress revolving around a man's inherent laziness and a woman's servitude. When each party feels respected, supported, and understood, each party tends to be more willing to give a little extra in order to meet their own needs as well as the needs of others.

Taking the time to thoroughly discuss the daily needs of the home, the needs that men and women share and their individual needs can help gel a household together with a great deal of harmonic energy. With everyone working toward the same goal, everything becomes easier and things are accomplished without tension, stress, and resentment. Men and women alike can 'have it all', but having it all comes with more responsibility and a greater range of needs to fulfill.
