HOW DOES SOCIETY JUDGE A LIVE-IN SON-IN-LAW?

Those are bygone days when men used to go out on the battlefield and women used to stay at home (specifically husband’s home) taking care of children. I don’t think this is even an issue. When a girl can leave her parents’ house and live with a strange family for the rest of her life, why can’t it be the other way? Marriage is supposed to be a merger of two families, not one person leaving his/her house and going to the other, isn’t it? So, if a husband decides to stay at his wife’s house, there shouldn’t be any problems as long as the wife and her parents are equally supportive of the decision.

Personally, I wouldn’t mind being a house husband since I can cook and take care of most of the chores at home. And yes, home making is a demanding full-time job.
