EACH PARTNER HAS SPECIFIC TASKS THAT THEY ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR

 
The husband has certain responsibilities that are not shared by the woman and she is unable to take upon and supervise these tasks. Likewise, the woman has responsibilities that the man is unsuitable for and incapable of performing them efficiently. If either spouse were to attempt to interfere with the other’s unique tasks, then this would subject this establishment (i.e. the family) to confusion, disorder and chaos.
