Married Woman Working
Debate Rounds (5)
Woman tend to take on so much because they are engraved with this passive attitude to help and care, helping her family out financially is just another way they are taking care of their spouse and children.
As for losing connection with her children, most moms continue to come home to help children with their studies, fix their beds, and make sure they are in bed to be up the next morning for school. And if she happens to run late from work one night, why can't the father help? As far a I am aware, it takes two to make a child, so why can't the father help out? If the fathers would help the mother out, there is no reason as to why the child should suffer or become distant from his/her parents. There is a reason why woman where given equality rights. They are just as capable as men to work.
As for history, there is a reason it is "history" or in the passed, because it was a mistake we can all look back on and not repeat. History tells us that girls were not allowed to go to school either because they needed to be home and learn chores, or that blacks were meant to work outside and be slaves. In the 17-19th century the color of an African Americans skin was thought of to be convenient to stay out in the sun at long period of time, history and science have proved that wrong. So why can't woman working be wrong as well? Are you saying that history is right only in some cases?
Woman are not stealing jobs from any men or single woman. Its called power of equality. If a married woman tends to show much more qualified skills than a man its because she has earned that job. Married woman with children tend to be very organized and patient, skills most men lack.
It is true that each family should know where they stand financially. And that is probably nine out of then times the reason woman take on a second job (the first is being a full time mother, wife, and housekeeper). Most woman feel that they need to contribute to there families financial status. And to make a comment to your "is it smart for a woman and a man to get married if the man can not support her" comment. People marry for love, not for money. If your terms of marriage is based solely on how much the significant other makes, that is not love. What is the big deal if the woman makes more than the man anyway? As you said it is great for woman to go to school, it makes them a better person all around. And with the high cost of going to college or university to achieve a degree, one would like to put that degree to use, get a job and hopefully their money back. For example, a woman graduates college goes o a prestigious medical school and receives her MD. She should leave her degree and hundreds of thousands of dollars behind and have her husband make money. As if any person can make more money than a doctor or lawyer. Not to mention the intelligence and work force you are taking away from humanity.
"And speaking of family, husbands and wife's make it a priority to have kids when they are not capable of supporting children." I believe you mean make it a priority to NOT have kids when they are not capable of supporting children. Again you make a point of bring up money. Woman can help a man financially!!! According to Chicago Tribune, more than 89 percent of married couple both work! it is not wrong for a woman to help out. As for the children, what exactly is your means of living that a man needs to support his wife and children independently. Children don't need to be covered in gold to live a decent life, all they need a comfortable life style with both parents that love them.
As for lack of time, men and woman do not work twenty-four hours for them not to see each other. And the pressure a man has to take care of his family will increase the pressure and will cause them to go crazy. If a man can not make enough money to take care of his family and refuses to let his wife work to help out, he will take up a second job, in which he will never see his wife and children. Not to mention too much work can make any person depressed and too pressure will cause turmoil within the house, leading unfortunately to a potential divorce.
I am not going against the bible but when do the household needs help, there is nothing wrong with helping. And my two people contributing to a household, it is not greed, it is a smart decision.
Woman can and should be treated as an equal member in both society and marriage. if the husband is unable to make ends meet on his own, the woman will place herself into a position that will improve the families status. If that means to work hard to work two jobs, for being a full time mother and wife is a full time job, a woman will do just that. Not only will this improve the families financial status, but will make the marriage a better relationship for it will cause the man to be relieved of some stress and the family as a whole will be happier. For, according to divorce lawyers, money issues is main component to divorce among marriage couples.
In conclusion, woman are strong individuals that are able to work multiple jobs and still be a good full time mother. They are able to make sure the house is running properly and make it to work to bring home some money and then turn the mask to become a mother to help her children with schoolwork and cook for her husband and family. Multiple woman in the world are great mothers and wives are still work a full time job, so there is no reason as to why that should change now.

Reasons for voting decision: This is an incredibly sexist debate from Con. The husband can very well be the stay-at-home parent, or neither of them can. Pro had the better arguments to support this.
