This chapter considers gender and parental roles as aspects of the migration culture and of the overall gender culture within which livelihoods are framed. It explores, in turn, opinions about whether it is more appropriate for fathers to migrate that mothers; views on migration by both parents simultaneously, without their children; and levels of support for migration by parents and children together. It also considers migration culture in the sense of how migration should be done, examining the stories of the UK interviewees and how they joined their husbands in the UK. It investigates the migration objectives of these particular interviewees and asks: were they predominantly economic or emotional?

Keywords:   gender, parental roles, migration culture, gender culture, livelihoods, fathers, mothers, UK interviewees, economic objectives, emotional objectives
