In Metro cities, these days people have good salries.
Women empowerment - women do higher study and later they quit job due to performance pressure which is happening most these days.
What happens after marriage:
Women get following support in household works these days:
maids, drivers, cooks, baby sitter, washing machine, Dish washer, Smart phones, LCD, Internet,
Mixer Grinder etc etc etc.....
For wives most of the work actually relates to monitoring things with no performance pressure.
But good earning husbands most of the time are under work pressure.
Imagine these two pictures, I hope somebody can really draw them :
1. Old age times......Husbands used to lay down on cots and smoking Hukkas.
Mothers...were looking after 3-4 or 5 children, with no maid, no driver, no cook, no baby sitter.
No automated things in kitchen ..washing machines etc. Even Pulses, Atta, Spices used to grind in homes by our mothers in contrast today most of the house hold items comes packed with no effort required.
2. New Age 21st Century:
Husbands earn more and most of the time are after making money and caring about their performance, kids school and best amenties/comfort at their homes.
SO people have cars, LCD, Internet, Smart Phones, Washin machines, maids, drivers, cook, baby sitter. All food items come hygenic and packed.
Seeing all these amenties women work is already reduced by 90%.
People have less number of kids these days with higher expenses in school fees etc.
Moher's main responsibilities remain to look after children , and I think these days as all of us suffered in our careers , most of the fathers give time to kids also.
PLessssssssssseeeeeeeee Consider above reality.
What most of the women do these days in families when they are house wives and husband earns good salary...or Upper middle class and above.
Smart Phones, LCD, Kitty Party, Facebook, Whatsapp, Talking at their home regularly [Note that in early days....Our mothers were not that connected with their homes, even ask with Wifes mother also].
is this Women Empowerment ?
I think the Word "MOTHER" got a BIG respect because they really sacrificed their lives to make ours in older days.
I dont know if today's mothers even compete with old age mothers by 1%.
How much sacrifice today's wife doing as compared to older age.
Even after knowing all this our Law is handicap in putting some boundations on wife.
Marriage is about sharing responsibilities, and not like one person is doing all sacrifice.
There can be cases:
1. Husband working , wife working
Household Responsibility must be divided in ratio of earning minus all automated stuff like washing machine, for example if a wife use fuly automated washing machine, its not an effort.
2. Husband working, Wife- Housewife
Depending upon salary and comfort husband can buy at home.
if all comforts- maids/machines etc...Husband shuld give time to kids/wife with minimum household work,
Because earning money is hard and takes your sweat and blood.
Washing clothes by fully automated washing machine, monitoring maid, cook, baby sitter and drivers is not at all painful work, and dont take your sweat and blood.
Moreover watching LED/LCD, surfing net, smart phones FB, Whatsapp etc at the comfort of Air conditioned rooms, whats wives are doing ????
3. Wife working, Husband is not working- very rare in India
