Considering that Barry's dad is a very successful Trainer (Battle Tower Brain) I imagine that it's normal for males in the Pokemon world to continue battling, perhaps to raise money for their family, whom they never really get to see. Also, some mothers in games have also been trainers previously. Considering the world's general view on maternity, it would make sense that in the Pokemon World, women stay at home to care for the child until he/she can become a trainer too. Your father was probably never quite as successful (except in 3rd gen) and as such, you are probably aiming to surpass his legacy. At least, that's how I look at it.
