Abstract: This paper explores the long debated issue work–life balance for women in terms of own visà- vis social and conjugal perspective in Bangladesh context. This paper approaches with an out of the box facet where unresolved questions like- should women be paid off for the household chores alongside their professional wages? If so, what should be the extent of the payment and how to decide that? Response were taken from both sex and cross checked. The psychological orientation of male and female towards job selection coupled with the social standpoint on this issue were studied. The target population of the research was a blend of male and female living in urban settings having the most representative role in economy and seeming to be evolved in psyche. The two major research strategies used were- (1) A quantitative analysis of the data collected and (2) qualitative analysis. Primary data collection source was a group composed with 50 working men and 50 working women where some of the participants from both section were married. Secondary data were collected from websites, books, archives etc. The dissertation finally wraps up suggesting the equilibrium state of work-life balance for women with the optimum level of monthly income and time spent at home and workplace that may bring an effective resolution to the conflict.
