It's B.S. We have a two year old and another on the way. Husband makes a good living and supports whatever decision I make. I'm anxious to get back to work, once we're done reproducing and the little ones are all off to school, but if I didn't, it doesn't mean that I couldn't just as readily fill my time with cooking, cleaning, laundry, ironing, running errands, grocery and household necessity shopping, listening to everyone's complaints, working out, and still finding time for romance. I do that all now, plus kids, kids are work, but I think a housewife with no kids is devalued, because with every other thing in our culture, people are HATERS!! Women get jealous that some other women out there absolutely refuse to settle for crumbs and instead,find a man that's behind them!! Also, men get upset, because deep down, they know women like us wouldn't give them the time!!
