What our MAG members say

The changing role for men in domestic life is interesting and is directly related to the increased interest among men and women in FLR. As women become more empowered, men are less likely to assume that things such as household chores and hone organizing are "women's work". Quite the contrary, Empowered women are seeing their men take on more responsibility for housework, laundry etc. In some cases, within FLR's, women are delegating the housework to men. Some of us are happy to oblige. Many men are task oriented and enjoy doing things well, including the mundane chores that need to get done in any home. The idea that housework is actually men's work and that women can now spend more time pursuing interests, career advancement and their favorite recreations is becoming more normalized. That's one aspect of domestic life that is changing anyway

As more women have started working outside the home, more men have necessarily started helping with domestic work. Some men may resist this while others seek it out. More and more women are contributing as much, or even more, to the household finances than men.

The role of men is changing so that they should take on a greater degree of housework, and domestic choices as lifestyles balance.

The man will begin to express his feminine side. he will be cleaning, doing dishes, cooking, ect. And he will accept the submissive role in the relationship

Women have become a much more powerful force in the workplace and a man is no longer needed to provide in the same way he once was what we can provide for a woman has changed and men have failed to change with it I seek this training to become a more complete mate for a modern woman one who will support her in all she does both in traditional ways and the ways prescribed by flr and its my choice to engage in this at a higher level

It is increasingly common for women to bring in larger take-home pay than their male partners, the so-called "reverse breadwinner" households. This fact can easily become a rationale for the woman having greater responsibility for managing the finances of the household. It increasingly common for women to be in executive, professional, and managerial roles at work. The same analytical skills and judgment she uses daily at work can be applied to the 5 Food Groups decisions in the home. The man of the house needs to recognize her capabilities and support her leadership, contributing what he is able for the common good.

Men have to view women with renewed respect and awareness of their power. At home he will reflect that in respect and obedience to her commands.

Well adherence to assertions is always best. Most women don't want a house husband. Every woman is different and understanding how to continuously make her happy is key for a man.

Life roles for men in a FLR is refocused on not just his financial and spiritual goals, but get guided by the lady into goals which expand his vision to include a vast vision of womanly insight, roles and purpose. The new role of support increases productivity and accomplishments in the relationship to new height and success. The only problem is how to communicate to other women your support of their success.

It seems with current culture, so many people merely worry about themselves, with little regard for others. If I meet someone, if I merely perform basic gentlemanly courtesies, they are in awe; holding doors open, pulling out chair before/after dinner, ensuring I always walk on street-side. It always makes one feel good when they notice you doing this, so their comments are very encouraged. I just hope this leads to further channeling down the road of being able to impress. Perhaps she take the lead in channeling these energies? Let's hope!

Obviously the great change started in late 60s early 70s when Women could access longer and higher level studies in much larger number. So they could then gradually take their place in the workforce and that had a huge impact on families' structure and the sharing of home tasks. In time this evolution led to another step when Women started to turn the tables domestically speaking and took over the role of head of the Household as the main - or even only - breadwinner. "Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition" said Timothy Leary. I feel it's true and that affects positively the dynamic of a modern couple. Being a househusband in a Female Led Marriage will no longer be seen as odd in the future.

I think the modern man is much more accepting of women's roles within industry, whether that is in the same environment or a different career

So much has changed in the world that now a days it is common for a man to stay at home and take care of the home and the woman to be the bread winner. This can be the result of downsizing or the woman could have a higher education in a high demand occupation. The man should realize that he can be of great value to the relationship and help out his spouse. It is time for men to put aside their pride and realize that helping out their spouse is the best thing they can do. They need to take pride in the fact they are being supportive of their wife.

Men now share in homelife and contribute to household work. Of course in FLR the woman makes most decisions in the home and everywhere. She is in charge and it starts at home.

Work life balance is becoming a more and more difficult issue particularly for women. If the circumstances enable the man could perform many tasks often done by the women to improve her quality of life and therefore in turn improve his as the relationship would be better. This is not something can apply to the workspace.

As many will say, women don't need men to take care of them in terms of money. Women are just as, if not more so, educated than men nowadays. I think that means men may need to think about assuming a more domesticated role in some ways. Women still may desire a relationship but they don't mind having more power and men need to see understand this.

Women should be in controll of domestic life. Because it is natural for her to be.

With more and more women climbing the career ladders it has become inevitable for men to enter more into domestic life . The liberated and career woman of the twenty-first century might demand that her husband be a househusband in the sense that he must do the majority of the housework, but she also expects her husband to have his own career, job or business so that he can contribute to the family budget. Some women would view a man’s suggestion that he stay at home to raise the kids as a man neglecting his financial responsibilities while putting more financial burden on the female bread-winner. More and more women are the bread-winners but that does not mean they are the sole financial providers. Certainly there are those marriages where the woman makes enough that she has no need for her husband to work, thus she requires him to be her full-time househusband and father to her children. However, these are the exceptions and not the rule. Perhaps a man can take off a few years while the child is between infancy and kindergarten to care for the child instead of using daycare. That is happening more in our society. But once the child begins to attend school, the male goes back into the workforce. Each marriage approaches this differently but what is most important, as far as a female led marriage is concerned, is that the woman makes the decision on what she feels is the best course of action for her, her children and her marriage.
