    Glad you feel happy! I could never be a housewife. I love to work and honestly I would feel like I owed my husband because he did all the work and I did nothing to contribute financially. OP did you go to college? Just wondering

    I was a homemaker when I graduated college in 2008. Back in those days we called it “unemployed”.

    @MrsSweetT:  I could live that life. 

    I don’t envy housewifes and Stay-At-Home Mom if they’re cooking, cleaning, and dealing with childcare. Going out for lunch everyday, getting nails done, and sitting around generally relaxing all day everyday? SIGN ME UP!

    @prettyinpink11:  I’m with you. I could never stay home all day. I’m a total feminist and have to put in half the finances. I always want to prove that I can stand on my own two feet. (Plus I would go totally nuts without my job. Teaching 7th graders fufills my life in more ways than I knew imaginable!)

    I would love to stay at home, I eventually want to be a Stay-At-Home Mom but would love to just stay home now.  Who knows if I will ever get a chance to be a Stay-At-Home Mom though… I would volunteer, cook, sew, decorate, probably help take care of friend’s babies, run erands, clean, etc. just do whatever makes me happy at the time.  I hate doing the same think every day, it just gets boring but being able to switch it up when I want would be awesome.

    I was a stay at home girlfriend, but that was because for the past year I have been helping out with my grandparents. In the fall things settled down again, so I am back to working.

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  Do you have an education and do you plan to keep in touch with your career should you ever need to support yourself?

    Stay at home wife here, no children. Our situation is a little different than most, so it’s not really “necessary” for me to stay home, but it makes both of our lives much, much easier.

    ETA: Just because apparently I need to validate myself to “all of you” so I can live my life the way I choose…

    Yes. I have an education.
    Yes. I have worked before. I worked most of my adult life.
    No. I don’t sit around all day getting my nails painted or talking on the phone.

    Just because you wouldn’t/haven’t/couldn’t live my life does not mean my way of living is invalidated and you are holier and mightier than I. Get off your high horses.

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  glad you have an education and have worked! I hear too many stories of Stay-At-Home Wife who never went to school and never have worked! Sounds like you deserve a new chapter in your life. It is important to cherish your relationship and you definitely do! 🙂
