Proverb: Đàn Ông Xây Nhà, Đàn Bà Xây Tổ Ấm

English equivalent: Men build a house, women make it a home

My father often says that he and us children are the luckiest people in the world because we have my mother. “If your mother is a bad woman, me and you guys will make three unfortunate lives. Because I can only make money and bring our family a good material life, but that is not the most important thing. It is your mother who nurtures happiness for the whole family. We might be a bit short on money, but family happiness is impossible to live without. Your mother is the most important person in our family,” he says.  Perhaps this is similar to an old saying: “Men build a house, women make it a home.”

At any stage of social development, mothers and wives are always the organizers and caretakers for family members. They form the strong foundation that encourages their husbands and children to overcome difficulties and pressures in life. They give peace of mind and mental support after a hard day of working and studying. Women in the family are not only mothers or wives but also the center of relationships. The wisdom of a woman will determine the happiness, peace and joy of the family.

The happiness of a family is not created by one person, but by sharing between all members. Every family member needs to love, support, and sympathize with each other. They need to make up for others’ losses in order to guarantee family happiness. A family is only complete when there is a man, the husband, who is the pillar responsible for building a home, and a woman, the wife who lights the fire and keeps it lit for that home. The house is the nest, and it is only warm when all members in it feel happy. That home is the happy family. That is the root, the sustainable foundation for development.

As the great French writer Victor Hugo once wrote, “A house is built from stone, wood, tiles, pillars, and rafters. A family is built from love. It will last a thousand years.”
