Gender Roles & Cultural Norms - Marriage
Different families have different ethnic, cultural, social, religious and political ideals, and within those, they may view gender roles in different ways. With more and more women choosing, or financially being required, to work full-time, finding a work-life balance within families requires men to participate in more household and childcare duties than ever before. In a marriage or partnership, you may choose to continue with the gender role practices that you were taught within your own family, or develop new ones. Deciding which gender role traditions to carry forward from your own family may present challenges if two people’s upbringings were very different, or they have different views of the roles and responsibilities between genders. It’s important to establish gender roles and routines within your marriage that you both agree with and relate to. If the differences in your ideas regarding gender roles are causing relationship issues within your marriage, there are books, seminars, and relationship counseling available to help find resolutions. We have the resources you need to find them. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
