Some are very comfortable with traditional roles and seem happy enough with well adjusted children. Look for example at the Amish who would never think of changing to new ideas. This is a fast paced world and no one knows yet what the outcome will be of the hooked up, plugged in, and fast food world. Meanwhile roles seem to be changing as women wear the pants and go out and work and men stay home and watch the kids.

Because they aren't programmed into people by some central committee of omnipotent social engineers Because the collective behavior of people in society changes and evolves by itself, often without regard for the often fatuous musings of various people who think it would better some other way around

I don't entirely agree with Daniel; in my opinion, the woman is the baby's main caregiver through its infancy, but the man has to help. The man goes to work, but so does the woman. Traditional conjugal roles still exist because they still work. TV and media promote these roles a lot, but that's only because it can have great potential for a family; hence it's still something to aspire towards. The traditional roles work, and the modern ones are just starting to take shape and look less reliable (don't have a thousand years of history to back them up, etc.)

How old are you? Here's the deal.... The main reason is probably because most people like getting a little conjugal every now and then. You probably should ask your parents, they would be the best ones to explain this to you.
