A friend and I were having this argument – people may consider me a reverse MCP (male chauvinistic pig) so I apologize in advance! (i eat like a pig but thats another topic altogether)
The debate : Should highly educated women work or stay at home and look after the family?
My argument: I would prefer to have a wife who worked rather than one who stayed at home. Apart from the fact that it adds to the family income (yeah im greedy) it also adds to the self esteem of the woman; Plus what is the use if a woman studies a lot (im talking high levels of education here . Postgraduates onward) and then just becomes a housewife? If a woman only stays at home her world becomes so narrow; its gonna be just housework kids etc and could get kinda tedious and it will be such a huge waste of the investment made by her parents on her education.
My friend’s argument (a female): she said – no even if a woman is highly educated her primary responsibility in life is to look after her family. This can be done effectively only if she has a high level of education. A happy home is one where the woman stays at home and looks after her kids/family 24 hours and 7 days a week. Additionally she would be well equipped to teach the kids at home too.. (homework assignments etc) ; And in the unfortunate event that the husband passes away then she can put her education to use and get a job to support the family (this point I agree on and which i feel on some level supports my argument )
Your opinions on this would be great!
