SO I was watching "Disaster Decks" this afternoon. The premise of the show is that the wife hates the deck (which is usually falling apart and unsafe) and the hosts help teach the husband to build a new one. The episode today they made a (repeated) point of mentioning that in this couple the wife did most of the household repairs. Then said in one of the throw to commercial teasers that they were helping the husband get his "man card".
Excuse me while I check what year it is......
Nope, still 2015. FOr a moment I thought maybe I had hit a time warp and gone back a few decades.
Why not have the wife help build the deck if she is the one with that interest and surprise her chef husband with a new deck and outdoor kitchen????
Or do we have to work hard to maintain gender role definitions?
