Equal partnership marriage used to be a great concept back in times. And, just like tons of other beautiful concepts, something went wrong, and it has failed.
The idea was marvelous: provide women with equal rights and opportunities in family; be independent and equal in a freewill union with their partners.
But what happened in reality? Women accepted extra duties and have to provide their families with at least 50% financial support, but it’s 2016 and yet nobody has taught men to give birth and breastfeed half of the family’s children.
Women sacrifice their health, looks, mood and maternity to enter and equally participate in the workforce and men… get 50% less work to do, and they sacrifice nothing. Attempts to share housework just lead to quarrels and housework is still a female duty.
So, how I see a perfect modern marriage:
- Both partners are aware that they are different. They are different mentally, physically, emotionally. And they can do different type and amount of work as well.
- A male partner is in harmony with his responsibilities, he is a conqueror, a winner, an achiever and a provider for his family. A female partner chooses activities which don’t suck energy out of her. Woman has to work on what she loves and enjoys, not being a main earner and spend that time on accumulation of her feminine energy and fill her man and family with it.
- That’s why when a woman drops her duties as an earner to accomplish her main goal which she was meant for (yes, dear feminists, creating a new life is the main goal of a woman), her PARTNER has to support her and take those responsibilities.
Then everything is in its place. A woman doesn’t waste her energy at work, but accumulates it and then gives to her man and family. A happy man is filled with his woman’s energy, clean house, delicious food, healthy and smart children and he goes and conquers the world.
