Should women go out to work or stay at home? I think that’s a decision women should make with their spouses and family. I personally think that women should go out to work for various reasons:
To begin with, the man’s salary is not enough to cover all the household expenses and make ends meet. You have to have two to get by. You need two incomes to survive in today’s troubled economy, hence the need for extra income and a second pay-check.
Also, It's selfish for women in this troubled economy to depend and rely on their spouse for support: There's nothing worse than seeing some poor guy working 60 hours a week while his wife sits at home and spends his money.
Besides, women should contribute to society in some way even if they are wealthy enough to live on one income...working for spending money, volunteering, etc. Women should work to pass time and to make money. It's an insult to the women in today's world who do have to work, raise kids, and do all the other little things that need to be done.
Moreover, housewives become overly dependent on the men in their lives, which make them vulnerable. Women should not be denied of having career aspirations. Women need to have the skills and ability to support themselves if they need to.
All in all, women should work if they want to but men and women should then share all the responsibilities of the house and children 1/2 and 1/2. Men should help raise the kids and do housework and women should make some money.
