Unfortunately I don't think it would be a smart setup from a financial standpoint if he didn't work from home too. But if he worked from home as well, I don't think I'd have any problems with that. There are plenty of good career paths in today's modern society that allow you to work from home. My boyfriend has been able to work from home 100% during this pandemic. I wouldn't mind it if he did more chores around the house at the same time lol. Currently I'm doing most of the cleaning since I'm used to being a self-starter, whereas he won't really do it (as often) unless I tell him to haha. So if he did most of the cooking/cleaning too, hell yeah :D3
Why should he have two different responsibilities? Working from home and being a house-husband? Why is it only acceptable to be a house husband if he has income coming in as well?
51% of millennials said they'd be fine with staying at home. Its women who have a problem, they see it as feminine. Even for yourself you can only fathom having a house husband if he also works.
That's the reason women aren't at higher positions, they take time off work, few years out of work they can no longer catch up. That's one of the reasons of wage gap.
If women are housewives kids grow up leave, then why is it when men are househusbands when kids leave suddenly they should find a job?
Of course if he's house husband he should also get an allowance.3
My fiancée already noted that in her opinion she prefers for me to stay at home - I'm very good at keeping the home, cleaning and cooking - but I'd prefer to find a job when the whole emergency subsides.71
What Girls & Guys Said
I think I earn enough that I can afford one but he would have to be very very very good at it10
Nah I prefer being the one that stays home0
YES if she is HOT.56
I know you are primarily asking women if they would want one, but I thought I would say this as a guy, I honestly kind of prefer the idea of being a house husband over pursuing a career, I do not know how to cook (no one taught me,) but I could learn, and I tend to like cleaning stuff.40
Yeah😊 especially if he's hot as hell and makes me eggs. I'll go to work, win some bread, come home and have my homemaker give me a massage and a hard fuck, then drink some scotch and play pool with the girls while he cleans up the kitchen and tucks in our kids. I could get used to that fo show32
I sorta work from home I buy and sell cheap cars and work at a comp repair shop that I take my work home from... The house remains almost tidy there's a clean laundry pile in my room. Other than that everything is vacuumed and put away. Maybe a dish in the sink... I'm not sure I could make as much as I do if I had kids here but I want kids here.10
There are times when I am the stay-at-home husband and I love it. I was joking with my wife today... She was asking how did I know that you should go to Dollar General between 10 AM and Noon on Mondays; I said "It's because I am your wife!" because, when I am home, I do all the domestic chores and shopping while she works in one of our bedrooms at home.10
Hell no. I got sick for 2 days and the house looks like fucking fallout now lol.31
Not really. I would prefer for both of us to work. If he would stay at home and I would come back from work, he'd probably be bored from the house and would want to go out while I'd be spent from work.10
No, this idea displeases me. I'm looking for a partner, not for a maid-husband or personal assistant. If I were to earn a bunch of money (enough for both of us) I'd be super annoyed to know that while I work he just... stays at home. I would end up resenting him.5
Haha, yes and no. It has nothing to do with income or finding it "feminine", though, that's all silly. It really is just because I'm an introvert and charge by being alone, so as much as I'd probably want my husband around seeing as I'd get married to him, too much would be tiiiiiring. If my job required me to travel, though, then it'd be great, and even better, as there would be someone to take care of the kids (Hypothetically).0
Not for me... I’m not really into either of us staying home full time unless it was in our financial best interests. Unless there are children involved neither should quit work. If there are kids involved and he wanted to take some time off to be with them that’s great - but not long term (years).1
I work from home some of the time and don't have to work as many hours as my girlfriend does so in some ways I'm like a stay at home husband. I'm home a lot more than she is anyway. I do most of the laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning and a lot of the cooking too. My girlfriend says she loves it. My guess is that she'd be fine with me not working at all if I keep doing those things are we're able to manage it financially, but at this point I'm planning to keep working.0
That would be perfect for my situation. Its not for everyone and can break a relationsip if not done respectually
He can help out, and pursue his passion since kids kids are more independant now.10
Hmmm this is a hard one since i wanna be a housewife😭😂. U wouldnr mind if i was smart enough to graduate college and get a good job and i respect a women who can do that shit yes a fucking queen but im just too damn stupid😔42
No Just no.
I think it healthy for BOTH parties to have lives outside the home. He not going to drive me crazy when i get home from work. fussing about random unimportant stuff. no thanks42
My husband & I are mostly home nowadays because of COVID-19. He's spoiling me & our pets and taking very good care of the household. <3 I'm in heaven! :)30
Nope, I want him to pursue his dreams and be what he wants to be. I can't see him just staying at the house and having no life. Both of us need to be breadwinners so that we will be a good example when we have children. But if he stays at home, he must know how to do household chores because he lives on it.10
I've had that before, I'm disabled so I'm always home. Guy was a IT geek so most work from home. So it was nice. We did our own thing in dif rooms of house then took breaks to chat together, and whenever. :)10
Staying at home not making money is the same for me as starving and having needs and wants never being met. I can't ever agree to this.22

It is so ironic that men wouldn't like to create the same positive homelife models they grew up with. Being a man who manages home and child care and organizes the many activties a family with children participate in is a noble thing to do. It can also be creative and enjoyable. You're creating peace for your family. Taking care of their health, etc.. Planning great parties for the bosses, clients or friends and families.. Scheduling haircuts, planning meals... painting the inside and outside of the home, mowing the lawn... Making life wonderful for your spouse, children, self and friends. What a great job. NOW... there are people who do not take this as a holistic all inclusive job. They sit on their asses, slap together a meal, dust a piece of furniture. Nothing noble about these princesses. But I've known parents who have welcoming homes, no matter who was or wasn't at home. That's the goal.
