This chapter presents three normative combination models for the division of professional and family labour in the future: the strong combination model, the complete combination model and the moderate combination model. To a certain extent, these models reflect the main normative views in society (variants of democracy) and the practical link with actual development. Starting from the normative perspective of a strong democracy and from actual development during the past few decades, this chapter argues that the complete combination model is the most suitable long-term policy model for all democratic welfare states. It is briefly compared with the other normative models: the combination model, the TLM model, the flexicurity model, the dual earner/dual carer model and the universal caregiver model.
