    "housewife" often leads people to believe that you have children

    its just the way our society has been

    and yes, some people think "housewife" without children is selfish or incomplete

    i think most housewives have kids but i think they're just throwing their life away and when they're 40 they'll realize that they would've wanted a career after all and then it might be too late.

    I think because she has kids she seems to YOU more valuable or important because she has others that depend on her.

    Everyone thinks that way ,but it is not true.
