    Great story to tell others when they ask how you became a couple

    "Oh, we met on this online student forum on a thread about whether women should work full time or not"

    She has to work. End of.

    Part time is a iffy but preferably full time.
    If she's part time like motorbiker said U expect a clean house and food prepared as that's only fair

    I will never understand anyone who doesn't want to work. I've been out of work for 6 weeks and have another 5 weeks before I can start my new job, I am going mad with boredom and it's incredibly lonely. Why on earth would anyone choose this lifestyle?

    I've been out of education and employment for 6 months... Life is good, stress-free and chilled.

    Spend my time thinking about life, playing games and stuff :smug:

    I will make a room for my wife right next to the kitchen. Saves her time making breakfast, lunch dinner and also washing clothes.

    I've always thought that a husband and wife both working full time would be exhausting - who is going to look after the house? When they come home from work and have the prospect of cooking, cleaning, washing etc, I'd just find that depressing.

    It makes more sense for me to have one person going to work and the other staying at home to look after the house.

    Cooking, washing etc will be negligible since both would probs eat out often.

    and with both working = more disposable income, so eat out in good places.

    Unless kids ofc.

    Some people actually enjoy looking after the house I love the idea of making everything lovely for a husband to come home to and make him happy. :daydreaming: Plus it's not like you'd never see anyone else as you've still got to do the food shopping and you can still meet up with friends occasionally. :yep: And if you have children, you get to see other mums at the school gate or nursery or wherever.

    Yeah but it's time-consuming what with the drying and ironing and folding neatly away.

    Not hard at all. We all do this on a daily basis.

    Not really time consuming if you organise your time correctly.

    And that has to be the wife staying at home while the husband works his ass off of course. You know, because.
