    I've noticed in some of the other XXXXX many women are not happy about having to work and have others look after and potentially influence there child upbringing at the day care centers. Many do not want to be forced to work along with there husband. Many want be home taking care of the household and family matters and would like to have more than one child but cannot afford it. Seems like the 70's woman's lib movement has finally been seen for what it has caused.

    Things are too expensive these days, only the rich can have their wives sitting at home, the women have to join their husbands in the work force to afford a decent living.

    I dono that this is political. Then again, TM does not work and posts in the politics section all the time when it should be in the conspiracy theory area.

    True... Id didn't have to be this way. The 70's movement cost us a way of life. It also cost us the dumbing down and indoctrination of our youth in the school system.

    I agree. It has nothing to do with womens lib.

    Womens lib opened up the eyes of the country as to the demeaning attitude towrad women.....but many worked and took time off for the "child bearing" years and then went back to work.

    But today? The wants, desires, AND some needs of the people, require both to work.

    Eliminate cell phones, computers, air conditioning, late model cars, etc...and only one would need to work.

    Sadly, the above mentioned are no longer considered luxuries...they are deemed as needs.

    How did the 70s movement increase our cost of living though?

    I don't know, if both the husband and wife don't have high paying jobs both will have to work anyways just to pay for the basic necessities, plus depending where you live an air conditioner is necessary or you might die and pass out, especially if you are old.

    Well until we return to sanity with our varies Government's entities all taking a huge bite out of the family budget Women have to work to support the family, its reaching the point that the children will also be forced to work to support the household. After this administration is done screwing over the Tax payer you can be assured its going to take a lot more then a single income to maintain a home.

    Depending where you live it takes 2 or 3 incomes in a home just to keep it afloat, my girlfriends sister lives in California and their rent is $1400, so basically her, her boyfriend and a room mate all split the rent 3 ways.

    Most of the women I know are educated and choose to work. The few stay at home moms I know, planned accordingly when they decided to stay home. Having a supportive husband, living within your means, and doing things in the right order (school, job, marriage, home, kids.).certainly makes life a bit easier.
