Biologically and physically speaking it's obvious man and woman are different from each other in some aspects but that difference between us as opposite genders is what balances us and helps each other in our weakness where we our lacking and builds our strengths.
I will address in this Mytake why man and woman should embrace their specific gender roles and the importance it plays in a relationship, marriage and society.
*Note: Some roles can overlap to both genders.
It's Your Duty To Protect Your woman And Household!
This specific role of protection is soly designated for the man, you as a man are physically stronger than woman and need to be the first line of defense against the bad guys if your wife and kids are in danger wheather outside or inside the home.
The Provider Of The Family.
I believe both men and women should work and have jobs and careers to provide for themselves and contribute to the household and overall expenses; nevertheless, it's your job as a man to always make sure your family has all their needs met, roof over their head and a hot meal on the table to eat.
I don't care if you have to wake up under freezing cold weather, hailstorm, sick etc to go pick up soda cans around the city, you better get your ass up and handle your business for your wife and kids and household.
The Head Leader And Decision Maker.
This leadership role is soly designated for the man; in our society we have structure and rankings for a reason and it's for to create order and dissipate confusion.
Not everyone can be the boss at work, lieutenant or army general in the military.
Everyone has a role to play in the military, sports team, corporations and society.
You as a man must be the leader of your wife, kids and household; you must possess sound wisdom and insight and know what the hell you're doing to make sure the family is heading in the right direction spiritually, financially, educationally and security wise.
Now, in saying all that, please don't interpret it as your wife shouldn't have a say in any matter.
You should always listen to your wife's perspective, advice and feelings on the matter and if she has a better plan then don't be such a stubborn jerk where you reject everything you are told, nevertheless, you are still the final decision maker and whatever happens you will be responsible, so don't point fingers if things don't work out on the decision you made.
Lead And Teach With Guidance.
Men, your kids seriously need guidance in this cold world, this is both your and wife's job but more so you since its coming from a man's voice of authority and kids tend to admire their father; so it's your responsibility to instill great positive values such as the value of work ethic, general respect of others, self respect, confidence, generously and personal responsibility.
Children’s children are the crown of old men,
And the glory of children is their father.
Be A Stern Disciplinary.
Children are known to try test their parents to see how much they can get away with.
As I already said, a man's voice carries weight and when children hear their father speak with authority they will respond unlike their mom's feminine voice which they tend to disobey and rebel against.
A child that back talks to his or her mother and is disobedient to rules and commands must be disciplined early and often by the father when they are very young to let them know that foolishness and disrespect towards their parents especially mom won't fly in the household nor in public.
*Roles for women.
Nurturing And Loving Your Children.
Women generally are more caring, careful, affectionate and emotional which gives their kids the warmth and love a mother can provide for her kids.
That's no to say men shouldn't play a role in giving their kids love and care but women generally do better than men in this area of nurturing while men do better in disciplinary actions.
Watching Over Her Domain.
This role of women is taking care of the business of the household, making sure everything is running smoothly, bills paid, her kids are sound and safe, being well fed with healthy food, well educated, home trained, have all their clothes clean and in order.
Women generally are gifted with doing amazing things with homes from decorating it and making it look amazing from both outside and in.
Moreover, I fully support a woman having a career and doing amazing things in her life but it shouldn't be where she's working insane hours at the expense of neglecting the home, husband and kids.
Home Cooked Meal From Wify.
Ladies, I know that some of y'all dread the kitchen and don't want the image of the 50's in your mind, but I would suggest don't look at it like that.
I think rather y'all should see it as a great blessing to cook for your husband whom you love and feed him and your kids when you come home from work.
Most men can't cook, myself included and I would certainly appreciate my wife for cooking me some good home cooking from her heart to eat.
Be An Encourager And His Side-Kick.
Ladies, believe it or not most men seek validation from you and secretly deeply care what you think about them especially if you are their woman.
Your words can up lift your man or discourage and break him.
Don't criticize him to tear him down if he's a bit fat, can't last sexually more than a minute or isn't making enough money and needs to upgrade to a better career but rather use your energy and mouth to speak life into his spirit.
You'll be amazed how a man will respond when his lady speaks positivity and encourages him.
His ego will inflate and his confidence will rise where he will think he can beat up Super-Man.
Be a helper to your man, in fact that was the purpose God created Eve for Adam; so that she be his side kick and helper.
Genesis 2:18: And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
