Would You Want to be a Housewife?

Would You Want to Be a Stay-at-Home Significant Other?

My mom stayed home to take care of my siblings and me, and I've always been thankful for that. Since my dad was away working all the time, it was nice to always have my mom around. I'm just fortunate that we could afford to have that as an option.

She had her hands full taking care of us, so she definitely is one of my role models. However, I'm not really sure if I'll be satisfied with just staying home and taking care of my partner and my future kids. I'll definitely miss working, and there is so much I want to do with my career and so many goals I want to fulfill that being a stay-at-home significant other might make me feel that I'm missing out. To top it all off, I'm not sure if I'll even make a good housewife because I really dislike cleaning!

If you had the option — would you want to stay at home make taking care of your other half and children a full-time job?
