Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by fadenike(f): 2:13pm On Feb 23, 2007
Child rearing should be given full attention, right? Thus some believes it is only wife responsibility. Some men restrict their wives from working no matter the qualifications or vision she may have prior marriage in other to take adequate care of the children. Is it the best way in marriage? Can you sell your certificate to your husband?

Sure why not, I woudn't mind doing that. It would have to be because I choose to not cause my husband insist on me being a housewife.

um am not sure of that. Men of these days are not so reliable, so I have to make a living but as for my kids (when they arrive) nothing is going to. Come before them.

1) Before you sell yourself into slavery marriage, make sure your man is not the domineering type.
2) I believe that children need the attention of both the father and the mother, in equal measure.

A full time house wife i think is a sign up for life degeneration (physically, emotionally and intellectually).
1. To start with being a full time house wife doesnt guarantee that a child would be perfect.
2. It leaves a lot of room for idleness which results in a woman being a gossip, a nosey-parker, quarreller etc
3. There is nothing challenging except chores and even more house chores BUT TO WHAT END.
I think a woman should get busy no matter how small. Not necessarily corporate work. It could be home grown business. But pls BEING A FULL TIME HOUSE WIFE IS DAMAGING TO ANY WOMAN'S LIFE. GET BUSY.

@fadenike

Well in that case then there is need for wisdom to be applied because a husband is the head and in authority. All men are not the same. (So what applies for wife A will not apply for wife B). Some you can discuss the issue about how being a Full House Wife will make you unhappy. But in doing this do not attack him but make him see reason. It is a gradual process but with prayers it works.

However unmarried ladies should watch out for these signs in their boyfriends before marriage.

Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by *Shentz*(f): 1:23am On Mar 04, 2007
This job would be sooo damn boring
Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by babyosisi(f): 2:57am On Mar 04, 2007
A woman must have a means of earning a living even if part time.
Besides the fact that she needs some adult conversation and interaction with others other than her husband,life is unpredictable,there is divorce,ill health or even death.

Full time housewife will not look good on a resume/CV.
Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by sisimose(f): 4:53pm On Mar 04, 2007
my husband is loving and we have talked about what we will do when we have kids, and we decided i stay home, he earns more than enough, if he didnt earn as much we won't do it.I mean i would go back to work soon after birth. But thank God we can afford to so i look forward to being a mummy , a stay at home one. Kudos to women who go to work with babies, but we have to be realistic, finance plays a big role, so before the man starts being totally adamant you stay home, you got to make sure you don't end up counting the pennies.  Yes i intend to be a full time house wife as soon as the babies come smiley. full time house wife and mother is a fantastic role, so is the mother who goes out to work and is able to have a balanced home

good for you,it would not work for me.
I don't want to receive pocket money from my man.
I love him but I love to make my own money too
love the independence it gives.

Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by goodness4: 9:12pm On Apr 26, 2008
No, i can't be a full time house wife because is bourring really, also as u said its all, an idoll mind is an evill workshop beside, there are lots disadvantages to its. What of if my husband hands are week in due cost as we all kn in these life, no condition is permanent. We can never predict tomorrow, some thing might happened along the line, should incase anything happened we'll all surffer at the same time: this are my reasons never to be a permanent house wife, not good 4 my health at all.
Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by goodness4: 9:18pm On Apr 26, 2008
Not at all will i sell my hard time learnining certifficate to my dear loving husband. I can always crate chance and ways of taking care of my child, not untill i stop working.
Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by tRoOE(f): 11:04pm On Apr 26, 2008
That's what he wants, but like i said No No No
After wasting thousands of dollars for sch, i will now sit at home doing nothing while my certificate hang on the wall.

I will be a stay home wife but still have my own businesses to take care of, I can't imagine my sef doing nothing just cleaning and cooking shocked shocked
Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by Cadet(f): 3:48am On Apr 27, 2008

Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by ~Lady~(f): 8:20pm On Apr 29, 2008
Sure, I don't mind. If he insists, then so be it. I can find something else to do. I can volunteer, i can plan birthday parties for my kids and their friends. I can organise a housewife organisation, we can do things for the society.

People think being a housewife means you being at home 24/7 or being a doormat. It doesn't. It just means that you take care of the home.

Go and read of the Virtuous woman in Proverbs 31. She was a housewife and not an accountant or lawyer or whatever.
Re: Can You Be A Full Time House Wife? by Nwaka77: 4:26am On Apr 30, 2008
, And if he looses his job then what? All of us go move under bridge go stay or move into an already crowded shelter. I refuse! I don't mind working part-time because I hate to depend too much on anybody. Human beings can disappoint you anytime. undecided
