    House Husband?

    Any on WHT?

    If you are not one, would you mind being the one who stays at home and do the house work while your wife goes out and earn the dough? Why/why not?

    Cheers.

    Lol, let me clarify this: House husband as in what a traditional house wife would be, just that it is a husband

    A friend of mine has been a house husband for many years. Both him and his wife are engineers, she had a better job with better benefits (and $$$) when they had their first child. They both felt strongly that the children (they later had two more) should be raised by a full time parent. Since it made more economic sense for him to quit his job, he became "Mr Mom".

    UmmZz, nice question ... But a NO from my side. There is nothing wrong in doing so and I can be a good house husband too but ...*cough* it's not an easy task. Working in an office is comparatively easy but taking care of whole house and children is a tough job indeed. However, I would love to run errands for my lady InCharge.
