I think it would be nice if housewives could understand us, just love us, and just be with us.

Is it wrong to want that on a short-term basis while in between housewife's?

Here is an example of a housewife who could be a candidate for honest wife dot com. I think we should be able to confide in the sincerity of a housewife; to at least, practice better forms of contraception, especially if she is not in it for a world record. What do you think?

A mother of twins got pregnant after she slept with both her husband and a lover, separately, in a short time span. The doctor who conducted the DNA tests that determined the rare paternity said it is only the seventh such case in the world.

Can we really trust a housewife with extra marital flings, if she doesn't get her girl friends involved?

Again, you make no sense, on so many different levels.

But I'm not going to lie, I had plenty of time for myself too. I made a couple friends, spent more time with my retired parents and in-laws, and became involved in things I never would have if I was working full time. I feel like I traded office politics and money for less family stress and for me it was worth it. Maybe if I'd had a "career" rather than a "job" that I didn't particularly like I would have done things differently.

I dont' see the arguement here or the need to debate either. But then, I never understood the idea that "working" was required to be a complete person anyway. To me it's always been about the money, and if you can get by and be happy without it what's the problem?
Working is required to complete some of us. Personally, I'm just glad to have been born in a time when we have a choice. It is because they've taken the work out of housework and we now control our fertility that we have one. I would not have wanted to work as hard as my grandmother did. Back in her day, staying home was a full time job and a half. My grandfather was the one who had it easy.

I think career vs. job makes a difference. I had a job while raising my step sons. I quit to go to school. I had a career while raising my girls and felt no desire to quit.

There shouldn't be a need to debate but there is no shortage of people who try to claim that staying home is for the kids (implying the kids of working parents arne't getting something), a higher calling or a better form of motherhood. It is none of the above. It's irrelevent.

Finances aside, it just doesn't matter whether or not we work. It's really an irrelevent choice except for how it impacts your bottom line. My family has a higher quality of life if I work so I work. What I don't want is that looked down upon. I can show that my family is better off because I work. I know that what I do matters.

My wife chose to stay at home this past year...we didn't need her income and she thought she would enjoy it. Hated it. Got bored. Now looking to go back into the work force.

It's tough duty...and not for all. I respect those who love it!

I worked early in the marriage even when the kids were small. I LOVED working. I was injured and could no longer do my job. It's been a long time since I have worked steady out of the home and I miss it so much!

Some of us have a point an a valid argument. Only trolls don't have either.
