Gender differences arise when looking for a home
The other day my husband came home and told me that he had found the home of his dreams. I immediatelly asked where and what it looked like. When he showed me the picture, which was a flat in an industrial area of SF, I paused and looked up with a fake smile. I responded by saying, in my puppy look, " I thought we wanted to stay in a small community to raise our son"? My husband is an industrial designer, and though I love all his ideas and taste in designs, I feel that the city is no place for a family. That night I couldn't sleep. I kept asking myself, is the city really not a place for children and families, or is it an old myth that I heard everyone around me constantly say? I know that there are plenty of families that live in SF or big cities that have good family upbringing. What is it about the city that is scary?
