What is a wife
Wife - The world has changed. The expectations have changed from one generation to another. I was a teenager in the seventies. We were the first generation of women who were told they could be anything they wanted to be. Yet, our examples of women were stay at home moms. My mother both broke barriers and lived barriers. She became a chemist in the 1940's. However, as soon as she became a mother, she left her career to raise her children. Women are still searching for that perfect balance. Our men still need us to admire and love them and we often choose to do just that instead of following our own paths. Humans are complicated and wonderful, confusing and complex. What is the new definition of wife?
