"He Gives Me A Good Life"

John and I were traveling back from
New Jersey a few months ago.

We entered the cabin on our plane and
arranged everything for the long flight
from Newark to LA.

A family came on. A mother with two small
children (both under 3, one was an infant)

The Wife found her seats and the husband
left and went back to his seat 5 rows behind
(same cabin).

She was left to deal with 2 little ones alone.

I asked if she needed any help and she said
she'd let me know. I suggested maybe someone would change seats with her
husband so he could be closer to his family.

She said, as she struggled to handle settling in two babies,  no that was planned.
After all "He gives us a good life"

This sentiment took me by surprise as I
hadn't heard it spoken aloud for 50 years!
That's what women in the 50's said about
their husbands as they juggled home,
relationship and children alone. It was
The Mad Men culture in those days.

In the 60's I fought for the right of women
everywhere to choose how they wanted
their own life to be. If they wanted to work
inside their homes they could (but with
dignity and free of abuse) or they could
choose to work outside their home.

The crux of this was the word "Choice".

Freedom for women from the discrimination against them in the 40's, 50's & 60's  rested with their ability to
"choose" for themselves  how they would live.

There were so many reactions I had to her

1. I was worried she was "putting all her
    eggs in one basket" Her comment spoke  
    to her husband having the power to 
    decide for her and the children because
    he brought in the money. Where would
    she be if he failed or left her. I've seen
    this happen more then I care to count.
2. What pressure does this total 
     responsibility for providing for one's
     family put on men? We know they, in 
     fact,died earlier then women did. Did  
     this total dependency on a husband by
     the wife add to men's earlier mortality?

3. Was she seen by her husband as
     someone who was actually doing a job
    like his, only inside their home. Or did
    her husband and community see her
    only as the little woman? Does she get the
    same respect as I do, for example?

I have to say it is still ruminating in my head. I still worry about what kind of
relationship they have and what that
does to her and the children.

I guess I will need to let go and let her
find out by herself. I just hope he continues
to give her a good life!
