Marriage and Gender Roles

This post via A Practical Wedding about gender role fatigue really hit home for me. I have always been concerned about getting married and suddenly being expected to "be a wife." I have heard, and still continue to hear, women say that they feel like bad wives because they do not always have the cooking, cleaning, laundry, and other domestic work entirely under control. This breaks my heart and makes me mad every time. Check this out! It's worth reading.

Hot on its heels is this post from Jezebel about 60% of married British women supposedly tricking their husbands into marrying them. I have to echo the author's sentiment: Who does that?!
