In marriage, men have traditionally been the chief breadwinner while the wife manages the home and takes care of the kids. But those roles and responsibilities aren’t clearly defined anymore. Our panel explores what happens when lines are blurred in the way men and women relate in a Christian marriage and beyond. Do traditional roles matter? What about a woman who wants to work or is paid more than her husband? What’s a man’s responsibility as spiritual head of the household? Should household chores be divided? When kids come, do responsibilities change? Our panel has had to work out these challenges creatively while keeping God at the center of their homes and hearts.
