mingogo4 : If I made more than enough money to support both of us, enjoyed my job, and that money was enough to do whatever it was we wanted to do in life than I would be okay with my husband stay home provided that he take care of all of the cleaning, cooking (like almost all of our foods, growing veggies), etc. so that in the evenings and weekends we could both be completely “off”. Obviously still split some chores if needed. But no, I wouldn’t be okay with him just not working and gaming all day or something. But I’m aware that depending on the house size and lifestyle, just cleaning and cooking doesn’t necessarily fill 40 hours. So if it’s not something that would take much time for you two, then I don’t think you’re selfish for wanting him to work. Even a part time or freelance situation could work for me and combine the rest with cleaning or cooking. Of course, in my experience men aren’t the greatest at cooking and cleaning (overall) so if he was going to not work he sure as hell better be keeping up with it.
