I never understand why married women are treated like free maids who are expected to do all household chores. If after working throughout the day, a wife can cook in the kitchen and do other work, why can't a husband also help doing household work? Is there anything wrong in it? What do you think?

Totally agree with you. It should be fun sharing household work, marriage never means slavery. Unfortunately in India it is so. I pity our Indian men for having above the earth feeling.

I am really not able to understand why household work after marriage becomes a trauma for girls.. If they are doing the same work at their parental home before marriage, were they working like Maid? Then how come the same work and the same girl calls herself maid after marriage. Men has a lot of other things to worry about, they have to maintain the same level of living for everyone with looking forward to future also.

Women talk about gender equality when it comes to cooking and cleaning, but not when it comes to opening doors, pay restaurant bills, change engine oil, mow lawns, build roads and houses, face the burglar head on etc.

The Bible says man is the boss of the house and the Quran says woman should stay at home and serve her husband. Both books say ta woman should be punished if she disobeys man. So, God has spoken, you all get back to work.

Worse than that is that if ur living with the guys' parents, you have to be a maid to them too..I agree with you that dirty work should be shared..

No need to cry loudly. As per latest statistics husband/ male partner is doing more work than wife in western countries like Norway, sweden, u.k, Finland, netherland, Swiss etc. As far as india is concerned wife is doing 70 minutes more than husband and this gap is shrinking and in 10 years time the gap will be zero. No need to cry indian women or if you feel like servant not get marry ... who compel you to marry, stay as single and enjoy the life.

the husband should do half of the domestic work only if she is doing half of the financial work other wise it doesnt make any sense at all.

Oh yeah ?? May be husband can share some workload if both partners are working. What if Husband is a single breadwinner for the family, then do you still expect him to share household chores equally? What about the stress he has to undergo to keep running the family? Will housewife be able to share the stress, help him with his office work?

It is unislamic for men to cook or clean for their women.

There is nothing wrong in it - husband has to help his partner wherever possible, in fact cooking a meal together is a great way of bonding with your partner

Husband and wife are like two wheels of cart. Whether working woman or a full time house wife, husband should share some workload with his wife. This will complement a healthy married life. Of course, the man may nor be able to do certain work in which women have monopoly.

so you agree that everything has to be in tandem. but sadly, Indian men refuse to accept this and are busy showing their egoistic sides in a relationship.

Yes, it is really unfortunate. Our society is male dominated one and we are still to come out of this.

It is something very awkward. we are still living in the patriarchal system which is not the true concept with the current life system. In patrrirchal system women are subjected to only household duties but today they are into service sector and doing/competing well with their male counterpart. hence instead of corporate focus should be on cooperation with in a married couple.
