Commercial surrogacy assists couples of late marriage to have their child, by the same token, it solves family problems that may arise due to Chinese traditional belief. The infertility in couples may give rise to family problems as having a son to carry on the man’s name is the Chinese traditional belief. Infertile couples in Chinese families may suffer from great pressure due to the traditional belief. In the old days, Chinese emphasized on sons and only sons could inherit the properties of their father. As a responsible daughter in law, married women had to give birth to heirs or they could be divorced in the ancient period.
As previously stated, the ancient marriage was a business agreement between two families to secure inheritance and family names. Thus, the planning that went into the ancient wedding ceremony had more to do with the marriage than the ceremony itself. Contrary to the modern wedding, in the Roman world, the bride’s father made all the arrangements for his daughter’s wedding. After conducting a case study on modern wedding labor, Tamara Sniezek concluded that the tasks of planning a wedding are divided unevenly and the bride-to-be finds herself performing the majority of the work (232). Furthermore, while there is no social vacuum for weddings then or now, it is common for the bride’s father (or family) to pay for the wedding ceremony today.
While both authors discuss parenting, they differ in the way they praise their child, the ways they punish their child, and the manner they speak to the child. Firstly, while both authors discuss parenting, they differ in the way they praise their child. In the article “Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior” Amy Chua says that “When Chinese parents understand is that nothing is fun until you’re good at it” (1). On the other hand, in the article “Mother Inferior” Hanna Rosin says that “I wanted them to be coddled and never to experience hardship” (2). Chua’s way of praising her child is not to praise because it expected to be exceptional in their education.
In the modern world divorce is not something that is considered overly strange or obtuse regardless of whether the person to instigate the divorce is the husband or wife. For many people, marriage is both a legal contract between two individuals who decide building their life together but also the divine union of two separate spirits. In A “Doll House” by Henrik Ibsen, the character of Nora leaves her husband of several years in order to pursue her own goals in life and find herself. While many people might still see this as a controversial decision as the woman had children with her husband, others instead point out the ways in which Nora acts as a kind of precursor to the women's rights movement as she decides to make a change for her own betterment instead of for the betterment of her family. It is in this light that Nora’s perspective on her life, the changes that she needs to make, and the overall way she is treated by her husband that allows her to make her decision as one that is not only understandable but preferential to the alternative of staying with Torvald.
Sacrifice over Self Individuals make choices based on personal morals, such as selflessness and betterment, because helping those in need and making sacrifices for others ' good is morally right. The March sisters from the story “Little Women” made a conscious decision to help Marmee, as well as sacrifice their Christmas breakfast for the gain of a German immigrant family. From the poem “Mother to Son,” the mother helped her son who was in need of guidance and care. In life, individuals’ choices are influenced by their ethics of service and sacrifice for other people. In “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott, the March sisters and Marmee show many examples of selflessness.
The way she dresses, denies the oppressive full covering, and can be interpreted as her way of challenging the oppression. However, for Laila, Fariba was no longer illustrated as the carefree liberal woman she once was, but rather a mother who is distant and prioritize her sons over everybody. Fariba’s negligence of her family brought Babi and Laila closer. Although there is not an obvious direct male dominance over Fariba, but in a way her sons have control over her life. Ever since her sons left for war, she longed for them every day.
Linda Pastan uses her poem Marks to emphasize on how easily it is to judge someone for what they lack instead of what they contribute. Like many other mothers and wives in the 24th century, I sympathize with her. It is easy to feel unappreciated in these roles, simply because in reality, those roles come with expectations and standards put on them from society. It 's our history as women, it 's what we are expected to do, and we are expected to do it well. Take care of your husband, take care of your children and take care of your household; that is the job women were given and although times have changed; that stereotype still remains.
Year after year, women chose to get married later in life, and recently delayed marriages have become a trend worldwide. In addition the rate of cohabitation, which means, to live in an intimate relationship without a marriage ceremony, has also increased. Part of the recent delay in marriage is not a delay in the union formation, but an increasing percentage of unions that do not begin with a marriage ceremony; therefore, cohabitation and marriage are quite similar (Martin, 2002). However opposite to delayed marriages many women still do get married at an early age. I think that women should not get married at an early age because this will enable them to focus more on their career, gain more life experiences, and furthermore, delayed marriages
We all come from different style now that prove the Traditional families values and ways are far gone. I will expand on this idea through the aspect of marriage, feminism, and a child aspect. In the traditional family you end up having the same kind of marriage over and over again: but, that has changed drastically. To begin, TheAtlantic.com states “ rise of single moms and dads… decline of two parent household…” (TheAtlantic.com). When this article pointed out “rise of single” prove that it is becoming more and more prominent for families to be raised by a single parent rather than the “ two parent household”.
