  • Some guys were very ungrateful of their women when it was the norm, and they would end up cheating on them. But since they are housewives they couldn't easily find a job so they felt stuck, in a relationship where the guy cheated on her and was ungrateful of her. Which is somethings I would never be for my future wife.

    • this may be true to a certain extent but society also came down hard on bad husbandry

  • No thing.
    If both parties have full work duties I do not think this is the best way for that relationship to continue. I believe for the benefit of the home (not any house), one of them should more time to care of the home specially the children and their problems.

    • in this time women have more power?

    • If they have a job they're not SoL when the guy leaves with his flavor of the month

  • Nothing is wrong with it. Its just not for every woman and its not every man's preference for a partner. I am glad I live in a place and era where we have choices.

  • Nothing is bad actually... It's your choice... Don't let the society device what you should do just because it says being a house wife is bad...

  • My mom is a housewife and ny dad doesn't care, there is nothing wrong with it.

    But if my parents weren't in love and happily married then my mom would have a problem because she would have to work for money and that would be a problem

  • Nothing. Not sure why you put free rent, and the rest because being unless you're referring to a stepford wife it's simply not true.

  • Nothing wrong. My mom is a houswife and at certain moment she decided (at the time -30 years ago-) what was better for the family.

    Things were different and she considered that was better to stay at home. She (with dad) have two daugthers (professionals) with two degrees and two masters and a son in college.

    We live in a society were we can choose so that's the main thing. We can do whatever we want. Just to be careful because there will be men that will think that they own a women.
