It could be argued that man have it the toughest because they typically have the responsibility of making the money and doing the heavy lifting around the house. If the bills arent paid or there is no food to eat it is the mans fault. Men are the spiritual leaders in the house and if there is a problem then they are the ones who bear most of the burden to help fix it. Another thing that men deal with is not being able to show emotion. In today’s society, that can be a heavy burden that often leads to any number of major health issues.
But in some ways women have it harder because they (some of them) have to juggle a career and manage the house and kids, if they have them. Women have it harder in the work place too. It is far more difficult for a woman to advance in her career than a man. Women have to look good and it takes them longer to do that. They have to deal with sleazy coworkers or bosses who sexually harass them.
I think that women often go unappreciated in many homes. I am not married but if I were, I would come home from work and help with dinner, do the dishes with her and help with laundry. Because I believe it is both our responsibilities and mostly because I would just want to be next to my wife.
I think the women who are married with children have it the hardest. They end up putting their husbands and kids first and often let their personal dreams/aspirations fall by the wayside.
So without really making a decision on who I think has it harder, I would like to hear your thoughts on it.
Who has it harder, women or men? Wonder if this will be a vote along gender lines.
