- Wedding: December 2004
It would be great to have enough $ to be able to pursue life goals freely, but obviously it would be sad if someone had none.
Personally, I have nothing against housewives, but I don’t think I could ever become one, even when I have kids. I really like not having to depend on anyone else for money and like contributing to the household financially. I also enjoy having the opportunity to put my masters degree to use at my job. My mom was a Stay-At-Home Mom, so I have tremendous respect for those who choose to stay at home…it is a lot of work to run a household and raise children, and it’s a 24 hour a day job, not 9-5.
I am a “housewife” (not wife, or not even officially Fiance yet) but I’ve been for several years (since we met)
The housekeeping/cooking comes easy, I could do it with my eyes closed, but it’s a lot of spare time which is rather boring.
Planning my wedding has been great, because it’s given me something to do. Also if things stay this way I’d have to find something to do.
I’d love to work, but it’s been hard to find a position and with FI’s job hours we may never see each other.
Not a chance. I hate cooking I hate cleaning I hate ironing, why would I want to stay at home to do all that and not get paid? I need to get out of the house and enjoy interations with those who are not in my family. This would mean I need a job. I need self fulfillment and staying at home cleaning isn’t going to give me that.
I live in 2011 and to me that means women have come a long way in becoming equals as people which means like men you go out and earn your keep, finacially.
I could never be a housewife. I’d go crazy after about a week or two. I need to be around people and keep busy. Plus, I wouldn’t want my husband’s income to support both of us while I get to relax, do things that I want to do, etc. My opinion, but I don’t think it is fair. But I have no problem with those who do it, it just isn’t for me!
I’m not a housewife, but to be honest some of these comments are annoying me.
What about the people who hate their job but can’t find one they truely love because of the job market/economy?! Are those people ‘sad’ and ‘waste’ful because they have the opportunity to do whatever the hell they want to at home? I’m pretty sure they think their lives are pretty ‘sad’ and ‘waste’ful sitting at a job they hate.
I hate how judgy mcjudgerson everyone is being over this.
