Motherhood - The Biggest Sacrifice
It's Mother's Day on Sunday. A day dedicated to celebrating your mother, giving her a day off, making her lunch or taking her out. The moment I found out I was expecting my first child, my life changed forever. Nothing was going to be the same ever again. It couldn't be taken back and even if the pregnancy hadn't gone through, I still would have remained changed.
Motherhood has taken its place. Wifehood, however, seems to be a remnant of the past. But recent figures show that significant numbers of highly educated women are leaving paid employment. However, the common explanation as to why these women leave their careers is that they underestimate the difficulties of combining employment and parenting. Lack of affordable childcare is another important factor that pushes mothers out of the workforce, although it affects poorer and less educated mothers far more than highly educated ones. Yet the picture is more complex than this. In my new book , for which I interviewed a range of professional women who quit their jobs after having children, I found that the decision to leave the workforce and become stay-at-home mothers was a decision they made as much as wives as mothers.
This is all very natural. Now come to another counter point of this question. It is woman alone who makes sacrifices. Man also sacrifices equally but they are not .

In our culture, women have been time and again heralded as symbols of 'sacrifice'. This quality of 'sacrifice' tagged to a woman, it seems has been perpetuated with a hidden agenda of exploiting the women and keeping them subjugated.
Well…he is not very fond of me working…but still he never came between my dreams…he always supported me and still is…he helps me with my homework and blog…he is the one who is always pushing me for writing…. Well I will take a leave…have loads of works…will see you guys on Thursday…. Adjustment, sacrifice and compromise are part of marriage…but forcing them is called mental harassment. It calls for double standards of some men in this hypocrite society we live in. There should be equality and respect in every relationship but sadly……ego rules for some.
I have found that women tend to make these type of common relationship sacrifices more than men. Your physiology creates more oxytocin than a male, and combined with the hormone estrogen, you are set up to be better at relationships and more willing to sacrifice for others. As with any sacrifice, there is always the potential for resentment. What I often suggest to friends who find themselves in this type of situation, is to use my Empathic Process. Take turns listening to each other, without defense, each taking a third of the time… and then, take the remaining third to communicate openly together. You must work to find mutual ground, wherever possible. There are always sacrifices that each of you can make which evens the playing field.
Men can seem disinterested or distant, they may also seem to put personal concerns over the relationship. As a man, once you begin to fall in love or like with a woman you begin to see her as a top priority. Family — No one should ever sacrifice family over a relationship, but it happens. The challenge that most men face is replacing their mother with a woman who is equally as important. Without speaking to you or bringing it to the dinner table, many men have to distance themselves from their family in order to let their relationship prosper. A huge Lakers fan.
