My friend called me when i washed a dishes today. I told her about it and she answered that she never do it because it’s the duty of her husband. I was surprised! I did not know that duties in her family are separated between partners. She added that he never clean a kitchen because of it's her duty. But the cleaning of the living room is a duty of husband in her family. It was just a few examples. We changed the subject and continued a phone talk. Few hours passed after our talk and I felt that I can not stop thinking of it. I try to imagine if I want to have separation of duties in the future. I don’t know why but I guess that such a thing came to us from old times. Just imagine 2 partners. Man – “I will not clean the kitchen because it’s a woman who should do it only”. Woman – “I think that man should clean carpets only”. Does it sound good to you? In my opinion, something is wrong about it. I believe that it's not good to separate duties. Partners are equal so duties should be equal too. A long time ago women did not have as many rights as men. And there was a lack of respect. But times changed and we live in a modern world where partners have the same rights. Kitchen is not a woman’s territory only. By the way, I believe that men cook better than women. If they cook meat especially:)))) Lots of chefs of famous restaurants are men. So I don’t believe that it’s a good idea to live by things which should stay in the past. If partners will be equal and if they will build a relationship on respect, love, and care then happy future will wait for them. Man and woman are equal and they are both needs the same thing – LOVE.
