I believe that if a woman wants to work outside of the home then that is fine.

I personally don't feel comfortable relying on another person for everything. I don't want to ask if i can buy something. I like to make my own decisions with my own money. I like to be able to buy my children things that they need and want. I like to make sure bills are taken care of.

Mothers are people too. They have goals just like other people. Growing up as a little girl we say we want to be this when we grow up...well just because you want to be something doesn't mean you can't be a mom too.

You have to be a good balancer.

And by the mom and the dad working different shifts when will they have time for each other. That isn't going to make for a nice home life in the end.

And you never know maybe they do need two incomes. I mean what if the man just doesn't have a job making that much money. Is he suppose to get two jobs just so mom can stay home. What if the women makes way more money...what if they need both or the mom needs to work in order for things to be good.

Having a job gives me a sense of control. I can do what I want with my money without having to ask.

With this woman who was murdered..it is her choice if she wanted to go to work. Maybe she was working towards a job that wouldn't have long hours...but you have to make a sacrifice in order to get where you want to be. Maybe inthe end she would be able to spend more time with her kids.

But the way you feel, you must have a man who makes good enough money to allow you to stay home. and if a sitter or grandparent can do it better than dad whatis the problem?

Is this a joke? Is it really a question if woman should be allowed to work? Of course they should and they are. This is like asking if woman should be allowed to vote. It's a pointless question that everyone knows the real answer to.

The only thing this thread will have is people saying yes and people making jokes.

@wolverine08: What's so wrong for a man to cook?You should learn how to cook instead of treating your gf/wife like a dog waiting for you hand and foot.

Yes, but once a portable kitchen is invented.

On a more serious note. I obviously think a woman should be able to do everything a man can. Relevantly speaking of course.

Does anyone here have a job that they can support their girlfriends, wives, boyfriends or husbands? I never did...... I don't think the question should women work outside the home, but can women not work outside of the home anymore? I don't know any house wives my age........

Both my parents used to work, in this day and age, I think housewives - especially for the new generation - are becoming increasingly rarer.

Also, you have kids?! Or were you just giving a example?

Absolutely.The only people that don't agree are ignorant bigoted irrational fools who believe that they are superior.

It's funny because it's becoming more common for men to be stay at home dads. If my future wife makes enough money, then I would be glad to be a house-husband. TV and videogames instead of work. Woohoo!

Um, yes? My mom's been working since she was 15, long before she had me or my siblings. In fact that's what compelled her to work even more. Frankly, being a housewife has become increasingly unpopular in middle class families nowadays. It used to be an everyday thing but with the demanding society we live in it's just not a financially efficient "career" choice.

Pretty much this.

Although I agree a woman should be able to do as she pleases. Frankly I am an advocate of a strong, independent woman for a few reasons. 1.) I don't like clinginess. 2.) I can be gone for 6 months to a year at a time, she has to be able to survive without a man around. 3.) My wife has always supported my goals, no matter how insane, unlikely, or difficult it makes our lives as a couple. Who am I to not support hers? She can do what she damn well pleases, and we will accommodate our lives to fit both our schedules.

It might help to know we don't have kids, or have prospects to have kids, that's a game changer we don't want yet.

Women should only work outside the home if it's relating to groceries or the children.
