In any society, the rules as well as the social norms are compartmentalized in such a ways as to ensure smooth functioning of family, neighborhood, community and the society at large. We all are largely conditioned to fall into the roles that are laid down by the society and fall into the expectations very easily because we grow up seeing others around us following the traditions. Thus the social norms are the boundaries or parameters that ensures continuation of family as an institution.
Irrespective of class, creed or social status, the roles of men and women is family are well defined.

Most men start working around the age of 25 and continue to work until the age of sixty or sometimes until they drop down dead. Their attention is solely on their career and management of finances besides may be some interest in sports or watching TV etc. Not many people keep abreast of what is happening in the medical field and how it can affect them. Perhaps expecting such knowledge from men may not be a good idea.
