Since the husband’s role is to go out and provide a living for his family, the wives job is to look after the home. It may not be considered a public work, but her position within the home is still very vital and important. Her role is a non income producing activity, but ensures the success of the family.

The Innocent Envy Kaymond Carver’s “Neighbors” begins with a comparison between two couples and their lives.

As a widow, Ifeoma brings up her children alone, yet the family is happy, noisy and outspoken.

 It was a stark, frugal life demanding strict discipline but raised with the charity of the Catholic faith. At age eighteen, Chanel, now too old to remain at Aubazine, went to live in a boarding house set aside for Catholic girls in the town of Moulins.
