Do you think both (husband and wife) should work to live a better life?
I believe that each couple should decide what is right for their own family. Sometimes both husband and wife need to work outside the home. Sometimes one of the spouses will stay home and raise the children.
Either way both are working for a better life by one earning a living and the other supporting and taking care of home or children--( any person that stays home to raise children IS WORKING.)
So it is up to each individual family to decide what is best for them.
I totally agree with duffsmom. Each family needs to determine what works best for them, because each family is different and what works for one couple may not be best for another.
I think that out of a couple, only one should work, so that more jobs are avaible to an increasingly unemployed work force. Of course, there are some couples made from highly skilled professions, teachers, doctor, nurses, etc, where this idea would be foolish to apply, but for the main labour force this probably would work. At the moment, within industrial society, we are finding absurdities where a couple, both working, are living next door to another couple who neither can get a job. I also think that when retirement age comes, that's it, you retire, not carry on working and keeping a job that a younger worker with perhaps a family and on benefit could have.
Whatever partner does the job, is not staying at home, keeping house and raising a family, probably the most important job there is?
I think everyone should work to live a better life, regardless of whether they are married or not. What are we here for, if not to be the best we can be?
I believe it entirely depends on their goals, financial situations, relationship, family expectations, what they value, etc. You cannot just say yes or no to that question generally.
I think a couple should strive to have the kind of life (they) want. The word "better" is very much like "beauty", it's all in the eye of the beholder.
If you want something but are unwilling to work for it then it's time to acknowledge you don't want it all that much. Ideally you want to marry someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship, and (naturally agrees) with you on how to obtain them.
There is no amount of "communication" or "work" that can overcome being with someone who does not want what you want.
Luxuries of yesteryear have become the necessities of today. So it has become essential for women to work as everything has become costly and it needs the salary of both to make two ends meet. But in your search for money you should not lose your insight about what life is all about and become mercenary. When you feel that you can keep your love intact in spite of work related tension, both husband and wife can work.
Work together towards a better life. That means helping each other with the load, skimping together, and getting jobs that put most of the money into the better life. A better life usually consists of a paid for house and car, with some money in the bank for emergency use and an easier job for both with good retirement benefits. It takes two to work on a relationship, and if you have someone to work on a better life with it makes it faster and easier. If you fail on the better life you fail together. And that makes for a rough old age.
