Changing the Way We Think

Changing the way we as a society think about household responsibilities is going to be a significant challenge. However it will be well worth the effort.

My personal story proves that it is entirely possible to wake a sleeping giant (husband). To very lovingly cause him to be aware of the inequity at play with his partner in life. Trade your own resentment, unhappiness, anger and ultimate hopelessness, for empathy, love and the realization that your partner is not bad. He has just been misinformed. As have we all.

After all, we collectively think that women should be responsible for it all. It has been deeply embedded in our society for so long that no one really wants to face it.

Let us be brave. Face it and fix it, instead of opting for divorce or counting on drugs to help us cope.

Our children and grandchildren will benefit greatly.
