This is one of my favorite posts by my good friend Wired Momma. What the h is wrong with being a typical wife? According to her, nada. I think she nails it when she talks about how it’s easy to be a wife when we choose to leave our careers on our own terms. For those of us lucky enough to have a choice of whether or not we want to work, when we can exit when we please, it’s rather easy to embrace a typical wifely role. We have the freedom to be a wife/ mom on our own terms.
But then, it’s easy to forget that some of us out there don’t have this choice or struggle with the choice.
And, it’s also easy to forget sometimes that for us to be happy being a wife means that someone else has had to give up something.
The husband. The husband who makes it all possible for the “happy housewife” to exist.
But why would the media ever want to cover that angle?
