    I definitely want a gf/wife who works full time.

    From my experience, it's not healthy for one person to be the sole provider. It introduces a horrible power dynamic in relationships where the woman becomes dependent on the man, and in turn the woman will become controlling to try and regain some sense of power. Also women who seek out a stay-at-home role tend to lack self-sufficiency and expect to be "looked after". You need exposure to an environment with real responsibilities and pressure to evolve and mature, and staying at home just doesn't offer that.

    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.
    This is adorable.
