Let's say you're dating someone. They reveal to you early on that their life long goal is to become a homemaker, a stay at home mom (or dad) who takes care of the children, cook/clean, do laundry, run errands, etc. Note that they're actually going into the relationship with this kind of mindset. What would your general reaction be? Is this a red flag early in the relationship? What do you think of homemaking? Do you think it's legit?
Here's a biased yahoo article towards homemaking to sort of put it into perspective: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/much-homem...
Personally, I don't want a housewife. I want an intellectual, working woman who can still care for her family. I'm very career-oriented; I have big goals. I want a woman who wants that same intensity. Also, I think two incomes are definitely better than one when it comes to providing for the family.
Now let's say you have found the love of your life. How would you react if your spouse told you that they would be happier as a homemaker? Ladies and guys, answer. I wanna hear your thoughts.
