    Do you think women sacrifice more in a relationship/Marriage?

    1.    They have kids and 7 times out of 10, this affects their body and some even their self esteem.

    2.    In most cases if a man has his job relocated the whole family would move but if it is the woman, they might not necessarily move. She would find another job.

    3.    When a woman has a baby, as beautiful as that maybe, there is a hold on her career/studies.

    4.    Cooking / Cleaning the house. I know some men do it but most of the time it is the women.

    Just a few examples, all done in the name of Love but do women sacrifice more?

    Just wondering...

      I am a stay at home mom, but I don't feel like I have sacrificed my job for my daughter.  I am happy to be at home with my daughter.  My husband works two jobs to support his family. He sacrifices more than I do. I don't believe either gender naturally sacrifices more.

      i agree with you,,, girls sacrifice more than us guys,, thats why now im in the right age im doing my best to give back all the good things that my mom did for us... because i came from a broken family, that is why my mom did all the best thing's she can do to make a living for us. even the worst thing you can ever imagine that a mother can do for her children.
          thats why i salute all the girls around the world,,, hope all us guys treasure them very much... stop hurting them... SPECIALLY YOU FATHERS WHO COMMITS FORBIDDEN RELATIONS.

      In my sociological text is concerned with, in some ways, this issue. Namely, analyze roots and differentiation of human growing up. This is a quote. The entire text can be found on my profile...

      "Treatment of sex segregation in the lives of people began very early, even in childhood, through the unequal relations between parents, but not only them, according to male and female children, and as such, runs through all of society and epoch. It is, therefore, on its "habits" transfer, the construction, the dominant (mainly patriarchal) culture and social system, traditionally rooted stereotypical images of male and female, and so that "every human individual is already become part of the birth specific community, which affect it which has its own characteristic ways of regulation of life and norms characteristic of his behavior "(Rot, 2003:139). "And socialization is a process in which the only biological individual is born with human potencijama to the adult, autonomous socio-cultural personality" (Milic, 2001:233). However, we must draw attention, as said, is that emphasis on social, not, certainly existing, organic, gender differences in accordance with these and so grounded socijalisation children. In a word, we talk about male and female gender that are formed through socialization."

      That depends on how you define "sacrifice". Is a decision to have children a sacrifice, or is it a selfish decision to bring love and joy into the home, an expression of hope for the future, and an effort to carry on family traditions, traits, and the family story? I don't believe sacrifice is the right word to describe the decision to have a child.

      As to a move for a job, again, I think such decisions are driven more by economics than gender, at least in sensible, logical adults that would be the case. If my wife made more money than me or got a job offer that would significantly improve our standard of living, I would support that, quit my job and move. Then too, if children are involved that might be a consideration as well.

      So no, I don't think women "sacrifice" more. I do thinnk women are very thoughtful and struggle more with such decisions then men do, but that is the nature of women. Women tend to examine decisions from more point's of view than men do. Women will consider how a decision might affect a loved one's feelings for example. They might consider how a decision NOT to have children might affect the feelings of their mother and perhaps they might decide to have a child not to deny their mother the ability to be a grandmother.

      I think women sacrifice as much as they allow themselves to sacrifice. If you set the ground rules from the beginning of a marriage, I think things will go well. It's when you start off doing everything and then expect your husband to jump in and help down the road that the lines get a little blurred. As for having babies, it does wreak havoc on our bodies, but what an amazing thing to be able to do that a man cannot do! Giving birth to my two children has been the greatest of my accomplishments.

    Phew, if you put it that way. Lol. But seriously though, i think both sexes play a role in the sacrifice thingy. Or at least are supposed to. But its a tricky thing, If you think about it a bit. Imagine a man, who's whole life is more or less programmed from the get go, to end up with one woman, in the entire Universe and Realms afar. If that isn't sacrifice, NOTHING IS! Lol.

            Actually Jenny you have got a point there. It made me think again. Some women stand by their man even when he's been a real pain. However, most of these women stay for the sake of the children. Now that is one big sacrifice - but again its done out of love for the Kids.  smile

    I can only speak as a woman of the western US, but I think that men and women both choose their sacrifices.  Maybe many woman ultimately do, and yes the affect of birth on a woman is distinct, but, in this country it is a choice to have a child, and so the sacrifice is a choice.  Primarily though, it is a matter of perspective.  If you view something as a sacrifice, without recognizing what the sacrifice is for, a person will always view it negatively.  A sacrifice is an exchange, remove all the glory, faith, and etc that is often associated and it is purely economics.  A woman sacrifices her body for a child, so is the cost more than the gain?  If it is, hopefully that person doesn't have a child since that seems to be wildly unequal!  Who chooses who moves when?  Or who does the cooking.  A relationship is ideally about people making choices together, and if a woman decides to let the man make all the choices,  at least in this country, that is her choice, and so what is the sacrifice worth? And what about what the man sacrifices?  Usually in a relationship in the US, if the choice is between the man or the woman's family for holidays or nearness or any of that,  it is the woman's family.  If there is financial strain, it is usually the man who is asked to put in the longer hours, to forsake school for job.  Since the man is usually the "bread winner" he sacrifices time with his family.  Sacrifice is a difficult thing to measure, and more so to compare.

    Off the bat? I would say yes. I mean women nowadays are juggling both career and family, something that men do not necessarily need to do. And generally speaking, women who prioritize their career may sacrifice their family and vice-versa. But, on second thought, I would say it depends.

    At present, we women already have our own choices, and if we make the choice to have a career and a family at the same time, we know what these entail and we should be prepared for it.

    I have also seen some reversal of roles in my culture, women are working and men are the ones staying at home. And with the kind of support system that we have in terms of extended families, more men in my country are the ones following their wives to their in-laws' homes or cities because the wives want to be near their family just in case they need help to take care of their babies / children. Of course, the men's family can also pitch in but it's not the same as having the wife's mother take care of her grandchildren.

    In the end, I don't want to think about who is sacrificing what, especially in terms of a relationship. Thinking about sacrifices, in the long run, will only make the 'sacrificing' wife or husband bitter about the other one and their relationship. I don't think it is healthy for a wife to keep portraying herself as the one always sacrificing in their relationship. I've seen this happen and it really really destroys a relationship. Just my take. Hi Lady_E smile.

    In my family, yes. Don't know about others, but I'd imagine I'm not alone. wink

    My mother is one of the most selfless people on the planet. My father? He's a very selfish, thoughtless man that I have no respect for, whatsoever.

    Also, from experience, a lot of men act before thinking things through (more so than women) and while they do not intend to be selfish, their actions due to lack of control and impulses can sometimes on occasion appear selfish.

      And from my experience--it was the father was the selfless one, and my mother the difficult one...

      All of the replies on here are opinions based on personal experience, for the most part.  It's perfectly natural to judge your opinions on what you've seen or lived through yourself, of course.

      So, based on my own life experiences--here are my opinions:

      When did it become a sacrifice to stay home with the child that YOU brought into this world?  Give up a career?  Which is really more important--the welfare of a child, or a career?  Sorry, but this is really a touchy subject with me...

      And as far as marriage--it's full of wanting to do what's best for you, your spouse, and your children. Some may consider some of their decisions sacrifices, and I suppose they are.

      My husband once had a severe infection in his foot--he had to have major surgery to save his foot, and his life.  We had three little children home at that time, and what does he do?  He ignored his doctor's advice to stay home and heal, and goes back to work within a few weeks. 

      He used a cane to get around while he was working as a painter--have you ever seen someone trying to paint walls while trying to balance himself with a cane? He didn't consider that a sacrifice--he was just doing what he thought was best for his family.

      Years later, he had severe back and leg pain, and could barely get around.  Doctor after doctor told him he would have to live with it, so for two years he did.  I used to see him struggle to get out of our car at the end of a hard day's work, and I would watch in tears as he stumbled in our front door from pain.  He would still insist on going places with us, even when he could barely walk--he even took us to a county fair once, and suffered terribly the whole time, just so our kids could have that experience.

      When he finally found a doctor and surgeon who could fix him up, he had the surgery, and again, within too short of an amount of time, he was back to work...again, with a cane.

      So please, don't tell me that women make the ultimate sacrifices in a marriage--it's just not true. Sure, there are exceptions to every rule, but I think the majority of relationships are based on BOTH husband and wife making the necessary choices--or sacrifices, if you prefer to call them that.

    OK, while some of the above has shades of truth, and are definitely culturally enforced myths, often, nobody has to approach life from a position of weakness.

    There are reasons, for instance, that women live longer than men.  One of those reasons is flexibility.  Babies and children can be cared for by men as well as women.  I should know.  I live with a single dad.  And I certainly am NOT the one doing the parenting in the household.  The cooking and cleaning thing is also a myth.  Again, my guy disproves all that, as he is a bit too much (for my taste, lol, it borders on 'Felixism') of a cleaner.

    My sister recently had a baby.  She is now the slimmest she has ever been & in the best shape of her life because she CHOSE to work out and diet after having the baby.

    Much of this is just myth.  I don't think anyone has to fall for these age old beliefs.

    In my opinion, I think they do sacrifice more.  They are usually cooking, cleaning, working and taking care of children.  Some men do cleaning, but most I know wont do any.  I had a short marriage and I do believe it was because I worked.  Next time I will not.  It is easier for me to live alone.  I refuse to cook, clean and work for someone else.  If I marry again it will be that I do not work.  There is too much to be done in the home for a woman to have to work.  Sure most women can work and clean and do all the things they do, but you reach burn out eventually.  This is just my opinion, but heck yes I think they sacrifice more, mostly in the respect of actual physical work.

    Man and woman both sacrifice throughout their lives.  What they sacrifice may not be exactly the same, but you cannot compare apples and organges.  We, as women, may sacrifice our bodies and health for bearing children, but men sacrifice their mental well being by taking on more stress of planning the future and taking the brunt of bread winning while his wife stays home to raise the children.  Each sacrifice has its merits and its downfalls, but to make a comparison is not possible.  Personally, I believe that both sexes make great sacrifices throughout their lifetime to benefit each other, themselves, their offspring and society.

    Studies show that if you judge by physical health only, marriage is on the whole better for men's health even if the marriage is bad (healthier than being divorced or single), but marriage is only good for a woman's health is she is happy in the marriage.

    Here's a link: … -for-women

    I don't know if that means women sacrifice more, but I do think marriage is not as universally beneficial for women as it is for men.

    Given that in the US women still don't get equal pay for equal work, are more likely to be denied promotions on the basis of gender, are more likely to drop out of school for family reasons rather than just because they don't want to continue, and are much more frequently forced to choose between their careers and their families' best interests than men are, I'd say yes indeed. In the US, anyway, women do sacrifice more.

    In my opinion, Both are Sacrificing at their end. This is only one aspect of life that you are showing in household. Just think the women they don't have kids. Women get job easily as secretary than men. Men have to sacrifice there. Women can earn a lot as they are earning. If women have to stay at home and take care of children then Men go out for work and earn for family. Many cases women dont like to work, so there is a big burden on Men to fulfill family daily needs.

    This is an interesting question. I feel like if its a sacrifice or not is all a matter of who is doing the sacrificing. I am a stay at home mother of 3 children. I had the cance to become the assistant mangager of where I worked, with the goal of moving on to be the manager of my own store soon, when I decided to stay home. I dont have a car of my own, I do all the cooking, cleaning, laundry, dishes, take out the trash, go to the dump, mangage the bills, if it happens in a house, its my job. I dont get to go shopping for fun like I did before kids, I dont go to partys, or out to dinenr. I do not consider this to be a sacrifice. I have chosen the job of wife and mother, and like any job, it has duties. These are my duties and I do them with love, joy, and pride. [ ] To say my husband has "sacrificed" less simply becasue he didnt gain 15 pounds with pregnancy and doesnt do hosework seems a little funny. His life has changed just as much, only in different areas.

    Women sacrifice themselves.  Most women (that I know, anyway) give more of themselves and forget who they are as people.  In my opinion, men don't give nearly as much of theirselves as women do... physically, emotionally, mentally or with daily activities.

      I'm sorry, but you have obviously not been around the same type of men that I have--not just my husband, but many other men that I know have sacrificed so much more than you can even imagine, feeweewv...

      It's time for women and men to quit seeing who is the biggest martyr in the relationship, and just concentrate on making their lives together the happiest they can...

      Believe me--It is NOT that hard to do...
