IMO, men and women are not and probably will never be equal. The age of equality does not exist. Men and women are different biologically, and are not equal politically. Thus, the age of equality does not exist. If both sexes are truly equal, we will see closer percentage of workers in construction, closer percentage of secretarial jobs, closer percentage of engineers...etc.
I agree with you that women does not have to serve men. However, a wife/husband should honor their marriage vows which includes honor, protection, encouragement, care...etc. It is the responsibility toward each other. I believe it is spouses' job everyday to think how one can make the other spouse's day easier, and better. Rather than, " Ok, it is not my responsibility to do this today. Or, can you see I am busy with the kids, don't bother me." One will get much more in return than he/she can imagining. Little things count. Does one really need to keep scores in a marriage? That defeats the purpose of the marriage and your vows.
I would like to clarify something from my previous post. I have left out that it only applies to reasonable men. Drunks, jerks, psychos...etc do not apply as they are already messed up any sensible things ANYONE does for them is meaningless.
