i believe men should equally contribute in the household work. when women can work outside and earn for the family, why can't men help in household work? i don't get why men have such obnoxious mentality. this is the 21st century where women, in the professional world, work shoulder to shoulder with men; infact, some even higher. women have proven their place and its high time men do the same in household world. if not fully, they should atleast try and help partly. i think they can start from smaller tasks like shopping the groceries. if you're a better husband, you'll do better things like taking turns in cooking dinner (obviously they have to work during daytime) and looking after the kids more often. cleaning up sometimes sounds good too. i know all these tasks can be too much for a man to handle at once, but things'll get better with time. an initiative is all it takes, and with time.....i seriously hope this concept of househusband will be not just accepted but popular in our society.
