So I am 18 but I would love to be able to go back to the 50s and be a housewife. I was wondering about other people's opinions on this. Personally there are a few reasons it's something I'd love:
The exact roles are clear. I'd look after the house, the kids and do everything at home whereas my husband would work in the day but in the evening he could relax.
There'd be no need for arguments since the head of the family, the husband, would be making the decisions. He could of course ask my opinion but ultimately it would be up to him.
I think families worked much better like that, and I know for a fact it worked for my rather traditional parents and also grandparents. So what do you think?

If that works for you, then other's opinions shouldn't matter. In fact, it was this exact lifestyle that has worked out for the best for the longest of time. It wasn't until people started to try changing things up, that people started getting divorced. However, realistically speaking it would be within your best convenience prior to becoming a housewife to know that your future husband is capable (financially) of taking on that role and having a housewife. If he's struggling financially, then it wouldn't be a good idea to be a housewife.2
