In our society, family work is still mainly done by women. If you wanted to do all these activities commercially, you would need umpteen qualifications. But family work takes place in an invisible area, where there is no appreciation, no payment or social recognition. Hardly anything has changed in this regard over the centuries. Since women are still gainfully employed today, the women are doubly burdened and often completely overwhelmed.
Why is our society doing this to women? Who benefits from this model, who earns from it?

"Ms. Tazi-Preve, what made you decide to write this book?"
Mariam Tazi-Preve: "I've been asked that in many interviews. Most of my readers have understood the content very well and in numerous responses I have been told, for example, that I "finally do justice to the mothers" and generally say exactly "where the rub is".".

In the "Standard" appeared on 13.5. my interview for Mother's Day
STANDARD: In your new book you write that the nuclear family has failed. Why do you think that?
Miriam Irene Tazi-Preve: My central thesis is that the nuclear family is wrong. This is mainly due to two things: that the lifelong romantic relationship does not work and that it takes a lot more than two people to raise children safely. There is no such thing as eternal love, just think of the separation and divorce numbers...

My interview with Judith Wittwer for the swiss TagesAnzeiger quickly became one of the most read articles in the national daily newspaper.
For those who haven't read the interview yet, here is a small excerpt and a link to the newspaper's website.
Today more than ever, young couples dream of family happiness. But you are writing a book about the failure of the nuclear family. How does that fit together?
Starting a family of your own is actually high on the wish list for boys. We are experiencing a re-familiarization. The more insecure the world in which we live and work, the greater the longing for a stable place of retreat. But the family idyll is only supposed. It leaves behind failed marriages, abandoned mothers, insecure fathers and sad children.
Why does belief in the family remain intact despite high divorce rates?
Because young people are being led to believe that the nuclear family is the desirable ideal of a private lifestyle. A good job, a functioning family life...
