Gender and marriage

We understand gender today as a social construct. Does that tie it irrevocably to another social construct- marriage? Will gender issues and gender roles in marriage ever undergo fundamental changes?

  1. It totally depends on the people involved in the marriage to assign the roles to themselves. We are too modern to handle anything. A man can handle the kids and a woman can handle the professional life. So we need to segregate the roles according and perform it efficiently to make the marriage successful. And help our partners too.*p*

  2. I think it is changing nowadays. People have considerably moved ahead and are constantly breaking the social stereotypes. This modernisation has helped couples break away from the primitive norms of a working husband and the woman as the housewife. Nowadays, more number of couples are taking the initiative and dividing the labour amongst themselves. I think fundamental changes are gradually taking place and with the surge of globalisation I think the concept of breaking the stereotypes will only get strengthened.*p*
