1. Home cooked healthy meals.
My wife is an excellent cook and I look forward to coming home for my dinner after a long day at work. Also it works out cheaper and healthier than eating out all the time or ordering in. Microwave ready meals are pure poision in my view. Also a packed lunch can be cheaper and healthier than a work canteens menu.
2. No childcare costs and no child neglect
"The working mother
has to take her child to a nanny.
The nanny has to take her child
to a babysitter.
has to take her child to daycare.
On the count of three, I want everybody
to take care of their own damn kids!
Whose baby is this? It ain't mine!"
With so many families having two work in parents children nowadays are practically raised by various strangers, nannies, babysitters, daycare workers and even school teachers. It's not so bad if it's grandparents or a family member but having absent parents must have serious effects on a child mental development, especially In young kids. It must be near impossible to know what is going on in a child's life or how that child is doing if you are never there. Certainly I believe a stay at home mother has a better chance of installing the important virtues of discipline and manners better on a child than parents who are always working.
(She seems to enjoy doing laundry)
I'm very lucky that my wife does all the laundry and refuses to let me after a minor mishap with some of her clothes when I tried to help. A wife your laundry saves on dry cleaning bills and gives you time to concentrate on other things, ie gardening.
4. Sewing and knitting
My wife is such a hero when it comes to sewing on buttons or sewing up trousers.
Kids can be disruptive to a sex life but the real benefit of a wife who is stay at mother to your kids is that she is less tired when it comes to sex. Often my wife will greet me at the door in a baby doll nighty and with a beer when she's horny.
6. More appreciation of all you do
I've noticed a lot of my neighbours, work colleagues wives and female work collegues are not very appreciative of all their husband's do for them and their families. I don't know if this is just most women regardless if they work or not but I can say my wife acknowledges all I do and appreciates me. From working an extra day to extra overtime to bring in extra money for gardening, yard work, DIY, home maintaince, car maintaince, catching spiders etc and the rest. All in all she wants me to be the man in the relationship and for me to feel like a man and vice versa. To all women out there if you have a good man let him know you appreciate him.
Anyway those are just some of my views on the awesome benefits. Obviously some of you may disagree or have a few points I missed. Everybody doesn't have to live as she and I choose to, for instance many families simply don't have the same choice, others have a stay at home dad and there are many single parent families out there who may do just as well.
