pple would always quote the people out of context to support their own opinions. Bia @ Lady, the virtous woman u quoted makes linen and sells it. She supplies the merchants with sashes (Prov 31:24). This suggest she works either as a business woman. She is not idle (planning children parties). She supplements her husband's income. So whether she is a business woman who works from her house or a corporate woman, the basic thing is she works

@stalker:
You are so right!
@OP:
I was a housewife who helped my husband run our business from home. I homeschooled our children and they attained high scores on the standardized knowledge and skills test. It's a BIG but rewarding job! As a matter of fact, I find it easier to be employed from 8-5. It's a privilege to be able to instill your values into your child, instead of sending them off to an "unknown planter"--who may contradict and not reinforce your family and/or godly values. smiley

Sometimes i can't imagine how some ladies cope being financially dependent on some1.
Damn,i surely will be bored and unhappy,no matter how much u give me.I'll feel USELESS.


REM.no one knows tomorrow.Work with thine own hands no matter how little u earn.U must not depend on ur hubby 100% 4 everything.U should be able to contribute to somethings without asking him for money to do so.
(btw wont you give your parents money?Will u wait 4 him to give u b4 u can give them?)

i wont even encourage that. in as much as the man is the provider of the fam, the wife should be supportive! The one sided financial burden wud be out and even the kids will learn 2b productive as they grow up. Can't marry a woman that aint versatile! for the house hold chores we share it 2gada, like 1 wash d dishes she dries 'em up.
Full time house wives are mostly naggin type and that seriously irritates!

I think every situation is different. It was good for me because we depended on each other. I handled the finances and he didn't begrudge or distrust me in spending the money. I never felt useless because we ran a profitable business that wouldn't have been so with each other. On the contrary, I felt empowered because I was helping my our family produce more money than we would have made working for some other business owner. Who spends his leisure playing golf and takes his family on nice vacations, while he has those other folks make the money for him. wink

Being a full time house- wife is something every woman should do. There is nothing as fulfilling as concentrating on your family and kids especially when there is a baby in the house.
However the major issue is - for what duration?
As long as the woman can cope, then she can get back on her feet and get occupied. I personally need to have some money of my own that I do not have to account for and that I can give out without feeling bad about it. Besides job gives you sense of fulfilment and contact with the outside work.
My work colleagues always found it funny when I told them that work was for me time out from the kids and more like a break from work. grin
