So, like. We had this discussion at work, about older kids, couples and married people and how they should contribute equally to the expenses of living, wherever they're at. So I wanna ask a some questions of you people.
1) Are you the one that solely supports your standard of living? Do you buy your own clothes, do the chores around the house (besides keeping your own room clean), pay for part of the house utilities, keep up payments with your car, etc? Do you, at the very least, go to school?
2) Do you stay at home and do nothing, expecting someone else to provide your living for you? And if so, how much negativity do you get for this?
3) Can you apply these questions to anyone you know, personally?
You could apply these questions to many concepts. Particularly, we discussed how married couples should both be working to support themselves, as opposed to only one person working while the other person doesn't prove him/herself to be quite as useful. Should the burden-holder have to put up with that?
What are YOU doing to support the household? Refer to the questions again and think about it. Personally, I don't think that being a slacker is anything to be proud of, though I can understand if you're restricted from working, for whatever reasons.
