Sat Shri Akal.....

this might not be a 'sikh' topic but anyway i am posting it here cause i saw a program on Tv about working women (20 - 35) who have small kids and how hard it is to take care of them....

So my question is; whether it is better for a sikh/non-sikh women to work or be a housewife? what about men? and their role? no hard feelings against sikh women..i invite u to a interesting topic....

ppl. forgive me if i say anthing wrong on this one...i am just 18 and not married yet.....

Interesting topic.

In todays day and age, it is very hard to run a household with one person salary. Therefore both husband and wife are working.

Most women feel household work is inferior. It puts them at a less equal position than men.

The trend in society is to not cook. Eat outside. Husband and Wife have seperate bank accounts. They manage their finances separately. No one interferes with another.

Sex is more priority than emotion.

Men have to do laundry, cook, clean, wipe the potty of the baby. If you dont do these tasks. Get ready for a lawsuit and half your property + monthly payments will be need to be made to the wife.

Lol man. Which time and age are you living in 1930s, where women use to cook & clean. There was one other guy like you who wanted a wife that would do seva of his parents. Nice dreams.

    • I'm shocked at the level of ignorant comments here. Dildos up their backsides? Kusrey? City people? First of all the reason they're called City Sikhs is because they work in the City of London, a financial district in Central London, it's got nothing to do with living in cities vs living in villages. 99% of Sikhs in the UK live in urban areas. That really went over the head of many people here. Do you expect them to look like UFC fighters?  Puzzled - can you tell me your level of education and what you do for a living?
    • I guess if it is OK for recently arrived Punjabis to settle down with East European women and have Sikh kids then there is nothing wrong in settling down with a Chinese woman. The Chinese are ultimately a dharmic people (if we take the current political situation out of the question) and have always been interested in what happens west of their border.  
    • Tbh, even "our own" can't be trusted. I personally stopped giving a damn what other people thought a long time ago, especially when it comes to rishta/marriage. 
    • In ultimate truth time is an illusion (Akal). All there is, is present the now. God created itself in many forms to create contrast ( limiting itself in forms)
    • There is a massive difference between the Sikh experience in the UK vs the US. The UK is a much better place to be a Sikh. The biggest difference-maker is population density. According to the 2011 census, there were (at the time) about 432,000 Sikhs in the UK. Accounting for some population growth and uncounted people (such as illegal immigrants), there are probably at least 500,000 Sikhs in the UK today. Now take into consideration that the UK has a population of about 67 million crammed into a relatively small island. And also consider that most of the Sikhs live in certain parts of the UK that have relatively large Sikh populations (e.g. West London, Birmingham area, etc.). There are not official figures on Sikhs in the US, but based on data about people from and Indian background and Punjab-speaking background, 250,000 is probably a very conservative upper bound on the US Sikh population. And then consider that the US is a massive country and has a population of about 330 million. As a consequence, Sikhs are much less visible and much less powerful (as a community) in the US than they are in the UK. In the UK, I feel like most people have an awareness of who Sikhs are. When I have been in the UK, it is a bit of a relief to not feel like I have to constantly point out that I'm not an Arab or a Muslim. In the US, nobody had a clue what a Sikh was when I was growing up. It is getting a bit better now, but it's still not great.   Anyway, aside from how Sikhs are viewed by the general population, I think the population density of Sikhs is most important for the Sikh community itself. It makes for a greater support system for more religiously inclined Sikhs. Further, the critical mass enables people who don't come from religious families to nevertheless gain exposure to Sikhi and get into it as they grow older. That's probably why examples of monay who become Singhs are much more frequent in the UK than in the US.
