Olsen adds blame on the government for why the narrator’s husband left by telling us that this happened before the Work Progress Administration, as to say it is the government’s fault for acting too late. When the narrator finally finds a job, she could not get one with hours well enough to be with her child. The narrator loved the way her baby reacted to the lights, colors, and music and was understandably crushed that she had to leave her baby with a neighbor so she could work (Olsen, Paragraph 8). Olsen uses this to blame the government for not coming up with a plan to help single mothers... ... middle of paper ... ...he ironing board,” that is, she hopes Emily learns her self-worth and does not allow herself to care more about getting wrinkles out of clothes than caring for her children. Olsen used Emily as an example of how the government cares more about business than people, thus why I believe she sustained an attack on a heartless, bureaucratic government in “I Stand Here Ironing.” She writes about how the government left the narrator to fend for herself and her child when her husband left her to escape the poverty they were in.
These days people seem to think that marriage is the only way to be committed to someone. That people who gets married will be happier than those who don’t. It seems like they are saying that the normal thing to do if you want to have a family is to get married, and that people who have a family without marriage or those who had a divorce are wrong and/or bad parents. Whether or not someone wants to get married or divorced should be completely up to them, as no one knows their situation better than they do. There are a lot of reasons why people get married, having kids should not be a reason for people to get married.
When people think of forced marriage they think of arranged marriage and they are not the same at all. Forced marriage involves abuse, and fraud. Arranged marriage is where the bride and groom are selected by their families and they don 't have any issues and it 's usually a religious form of marriage.

With arranged marriages, you hurt your children more than help them. By marrying them at a young age, they don't get much education. Arranged Marriages are cruel because people deserve the choice of who they marry and a chance of love. Traditional arranged marriages were arranged by the parents. They arranged the child's future spouse with little or no input from the child being taken as having final authority ("Arranged marriage").
LBGT couples raising children is mostly not considered acceptable by the public because of the misunderstanding that they are not prepared to bring up children in with proper social values. The public is not certain if children will receive proper education about society and behavior to fit in as responsible members. Same sex marriages can be performed in a secular civil ceremony or in religious setting. They should be allowed to publicly celebrate their commitment in the same way as heterosexual couples. The first laws in modern times enabling same-sex marriage were enacted during the first decade of the 21st century.38 states ban same sex marriage, same by constitutional amendment, and same by law and the majority by both.
Zimmerman (Zimmerman 64-73)believes that “Lydia's interest in marriage has displaced any other perspective [she] might have, including a moral one”. Often marriages were arranged between parents to make sure their daughters or sons would find suitable husbands and wives in both regards to money and social standing. Marriages were also common to form political unions between houses, or to finalize a business contract.

She says “If a marriage ceremony is a religious thing it is possibly wrong, but it is only a sordid contract based on material convenience in house holding, rating and taxing, and the inheritance of land and money by children making it necessary that the male parent should be known." (Ibid p. 208) Sue realises the consequence of fighting against the social taboos as she gets back to Phillotson to set the things right in the traditional manner. But she only does that because of religious and social forces. Fate is also to blame of making this decision because her children die at the same time. After all being a mother she stops and decides to go back to the same social norms to which she used to criticise.
