Having it all

It's a debate we've all weighed in on. And read a hundred surveys about... In 2009, is it possible for a woman to juggle a demanding job, strong relationship and be a great mum – all at the same time? Whatever your feelings – whether you think something has to give or we deserve the lot – it's certainly a topic we can all relate to. Well, now men are getting involved, and saying they're also feeling the pressure too. In this week's Grazia, broadcaster and journalist Sam Delaney explains how he struggles to be the perfect partner, dad and breadwinner. He says life for men now is so much harder than it was in his dad's day when guys could 'just focus on getting to work, then coming home by seven to tuck the kids up in bed and sit down for a hearty dinner that had already been prepared' by their wives. Modern dads now have to share the childcare and housework duties as well as work. So what do you think? Are men moaning just because they're finally getting a glimpse into our hectic lifestyles? Or do we need them to help out and openly talk about this, so we can work out a balance? Let us know...
