... the master of the house
As for your question: What is the master of the house and what is expected of the master of the house, i would like to say something...
Master of the house:
Most women think that husbands should take more resposiblity in everything , esp. making big decisions, for example buying a house, moving to work in another city, raising children, educating the children. ( now more and more couples discuss these together and reach an agreement . Vise versa, some wives control and decide everything. ) . Women hopes men can share their happiness as well as sadness. They hope a cosy family. You know women are more sensitive and emotional.
Money is another problem. In the old days, many women had no income . They had to rely on their husbands. So the husbands really the " Master " , controlled everything. But now that's different....more and more female are well-educated and highly paid. In this situation, wives give the tittle "Master", it only means that she respecets you, hoping you will be proud of the family.
From your posts, i can see you have your own way of dealing the family affairs. You are happy living in China. BUt the cultural difference /habbits need some time to understand...... You can share your ideas with your wife and try to think it on her side. She also needs time to your way.
