I think that wives with children positively influence the couple’s marriage. Starting from the positive financial impact, to the emotional satisfaction that work brings to mothers, work outside home contributes to a better atmosphere at both home and marriage. Couple relationships are happier when the wife’s work acts as a financial safety net, and the couple share child rearing. Husbands and wives are more satisfied with their relationship when both partners view themselves as equally responsible for providing financially for the family, as compared to those who see the husband as the only partner responsible for providing. Research have shown that the main reason for the divorce rate to rise to 50 percent is the tendency of partners to go back to the old ways of parenting and into traditional roles when their children are born, thus destroying the equality and friendship they previously shared before the child was born. If the mother does most of the child care while the father is the only breadwinner, the couple will grow apart by blaming one another for their mutual anger. In addition, a 2003 study of 749 women from the Midwest US found that women who quit work after having a child experience 30% more psychological distress compared to woman who returned to their jobs. Women who never returned to their part- time jobs experienced 10% more distress. Public health data from researchers in US found that women who have been wives, mothers, and workers were significantly less likely to suffer poor health than woman who did not play all three roles. Two incomes are a safety net, especially when the couple has children. As children grow and become more expensive to rear, the pressures on a sole provider increase. At the same time, the breadwinner becomes more competent at work and less competent at home. If the husband loses its job, a working wife provides financial security until the next job comes along. Research has shown that marriage can be a lot more rewarding and fun, if both parents jump into family life full force. Sharing the experience when both spouses have careers and are parents can be protective for the marriage. Studies have shown that once a child enters the family, spouses begin to gradually disengage from one another if one parent leaves the house for work each day while the other stays behind. When a woman sees her job as important, her marriage will likely be more equal, and when marriage is more equal, couples and particularly women are happier. When both parents have jobs outside the home, their daily experience remains more similar, even if they work in entirely different fields. In 2006, the American Journal of Sociology showed that among American couples, whether wives work or not, if husbands do more household, the odds of getting divorced are lower. Couples where the husband did 50% of the household work and wives did 50% of the earnings reduce their odds of divorce by more than 50% as compared with couples where the wife did all the housework and the husband earned all the money. When women play multiple roles such as worker, spouse and parent they enjoy higher self- esteem. Working mothers say that finding satisfaction in the day- to day is what keeps the couple going. Work lets working women in general define themselves more broadly and expand their sense of who they are and what they can do. Although today most married women work for pay, and beliefs about the roles of men and women have undergone noticeable shifts towards gender equality, married women still perform most of the household tasks. Mothers do not usually work to avoid household demands and responsibilities so much as it is that they work for the challenge and intellectual stimulation that work gives them. Women that are typically well educated and hold professional jobs are more likely to renegotiate traditional gender roles and responsibilities in some cases by purchasing services such as child care, and in others by reallocating…

Working Title: “Gretel” by Andrea Hollander Budy
In the contemptuous poem “Gretel”, Andrea Hollander Budy depicts female stereotype in the form of a fairytale. She describes it as women belonging in the kitchen cooking and cleaning for the rest of their lives as if women are only qualified to do that. While the initial tone is one of hopelessness, the tone shifts to one of a grim tone. These shifts in tone and the subtle use of imagery emphasizes the unreasonable stereotype of women belonging…
Divorce. That seven letter word that nobody likes to hear while growing up. When you look at your mother and father have you ever pictured your family to be split into two? I grew up from a very young age with having my parents split. Because of that it made it very difficult to choose who would best help me solve my problems in life. Everyone depends differently on their mother or father.
When your parents are separated who do you run too? Making up your mind for help is always a difficult…

Supreet Mann, Author of “Working Mothers are Benefitting the Family,” idolizes individuals going against the grain of societies’ long-held stereotype of the “perfect family.” Societal rules plagued the men and women of yesteryear. Men have been idolized while women have been looked down upon. However; recently, the plague has been lifted, and the United States has become a liberated society free of conformity, leaving men and women battling for highly desired positions in…
school with the help of her mother. She went on to a very successful career and raised her children to know what it is like to have to work for what you want.

. The most beautiful memories of my childhood are big dog, lawn and a hero dad as well as sumptuous dinner that my mother did. My father is my best friend. As time goes on, I am growing up day by day. Gradually, I found my father stopped playing with me. A few years after, I left home and came to Canada by myself.
