The financial requirements for maintaining a family has changed quite a lot compared to the past. The notion of keeping a single bread winner in a house has major drawbacks for maintaining a positive cash flow into the family reserve. This essay highlights why modern family structure demands both family members to contribute to the financial resource pool for sustaining a family in a financially stable situation.
Firstly, compared to past financial requirement for running a family has increased due to several factors including inflation. An argument can be made that for providing the best chance for children to stay competitive in rough and changing trends that is happening right now needs a huge money pool, therefore by cutting of one asset source it would be harder on the person that is designated as bread winner. This debunks what is generally said that your offspring’s welfare is at risk if both parents are working.
Secondly an argument can be made, that income from both the partners might help to keep the family dynamic stable where there is less chance for one dominating the other. This will set an example for stepping away from a society that is criticized of being male dominated which could help to normalize equality for both genders.
From the ideas presented we can summarized that it takes two to build a family and in this case a greater involvement of both male and female spouses to share all the responsibilities of running a family. It might not be the strategy that might work for everybody but still this approach significantly reduce the probability of collapse in absence of one of the family member who contribute to the resource pool that runs a family.
