Working Woman

Today more and more married women are working outside the home. For most of them the reason is obvious: they must work if their families are to survive. But what about those who don’ t really have to work? Do the rewards justify their efforts? The answer is pretty clearly “yes”.

The most obvious benefit to woman working outside the home is financial. The rising costs of living have forced many women to work simply to keep their families going. And even in those families in which the wife has a choice, the Cartier Roadster Replica extra income may reduce the financial burden on her husband in paying for college for the children, remodeling their house, or taking a long-delayed vacation. For young couples the benefit is not being able to remodel a house, it’ s the possibility of buying one in the first place. If the wife does not work, buying a house is simply out of the question. Two other points need to be considered, too. Even when the children have left the house, the drop in family costs is often replaced by the cost of supporting aging parents. And second, a job provides a wife additional security, psychological as well as financial, in case of the illness or death of her husband.

A second benefit, particularly for women in their late thirties or forties, is the relief from the boredom of housework. They want a change from the deadly routine of washing clothes, making beds, cleaning the furniture, and the like. Not all jobs are exciting, of course; but they provide a change and a challenge, particularly for those who feel their abilities and skills have been wasted at home. In addition, women who work often have more to contribute to conversations with their husbands and friends. And as their conversation becomes livelier, more interesting, they become more lively and interesting themselves.

But perhaps the most significant benefit of working is psychological. Women have spent their early married lives looking after their homes, their children and husbands. When their children are gone and the housework is reduced, they often find themselves unable to cope with the extra time on their hands. Working Replica Watches gives them something constructive to do outside the home. Meeting new people on the job, putting long-neglected skills to use, competing successfully in the marketplace—all of these experiences help to build their self-confidence; they give a woman a sense of her own importance. As she proves to herself that she can bring home the bacon as well as cook it, she will open herself to new experience and broaden her interests.

But some people may ask, ” Won’ t all this make a wife less dependent on her husband?” Yes, quite likely. Some husbands want their wives dependent upon them for all their needs. But a truly happy, successful marriage means freedom for each partner to grow within the bonds of a loving relationship. For some husbands the change will be painful, but all growth involves pain. And, in the long run, it’s an acceptable price to pay for the personal growth and sense of achievement his wife will gain.
