    Only if they accept the full consequences of their choices & actions. Too many just take the easy way out by playing the "blame game" when they fail.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    ......The show appears to conflict with the Debate scheduled tonight, nevertheless, I'll try and catch it; although the answer is obvious, some new stuff may come up, thanks Indigo Blues.

    Peace In,

    A household is an economic unit used primarily for purposes of government statistics particularly that of economics and political economy.

    A household is a unit.

    If by "Head Of Household", you mean bringing in the majority of income, I say that during these times of economy dispare...
    that this would be a shared responsibility. I would hope that the man is doing his share at home to keep the unit intact and on
    point while the woman is away working. I love having my man as head of the household (if he's there). My being able to step
    in and pitch in to keep us on an even kile...doesn't make me want that total responsibilty. When a man is taking care of that
    properly, its exciting and sexy as hell......to me. But to answer the question as written, "only when the man isn't doing his part"!
    And after saying that.."he shouldn't be there". This is my opinion only if there are no other circumstances involved and all is healthy
    and well.

    No man is the head of the household if he needs his woman's money to help pay the bills. But that's just my opinion.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Made a gallant effort to watch this, but was overtaken by the republican debate, sorry; will you fill us in on the high points, if you watched this Indigo Blues?

    Peace In,

    I'm striving for my house and land to be labeled not as a "household".

    Good morning Clyde,

    No, I didn't get a chance to listen to the show. I got tricked by my aunt into helping her make peach perserves and grape jam last night.:lol: She made the perserves and I cleaned the jars and filled them with perserves and jam! Tonight she got me helping her with canning tomatoes!

    Yes, women can be the head of household! Sometimes circumstances will put us there regardless if we want to be or not! A good majority of us black women WANT our men to take charge (don't get stupid with it), do the right thing and be the head of his household! Pay them dam bills and mortgae on time, make the right choices for your family, discuss things with your wife or partner and protect your family!
