Housewives vs. Non-housewives: a dozen rapid fires round

Updated on August 28, 2012

Statutory warning: It is not advisable to go through the content of this hub by any too emotional and sensitive house wife. It is a mere attempt to write a fun hub here. No intention to hurt anybody, on a very very serious note it is stated for kind consideration of all. It may be injurious to emotional health if one reads without humorous switch keeping in super active mode PLEASE.

[Waiting in terrible anxious status to see if this hub is flagged as one carrying inappropriate stuff by my fellow hubbers and really checking the hilarious side us, how much we can laugh at ourselves]

A cold war situation is always noticed among the two breed of one super sensitive breed and that is wives. This human variety takes the role play very seriously after the ceremonial incident (pun intended) of marriage. They after the occasion of marriage thinks that ownership right of another human is their almost status update (!) right and some tends to treat it as birth right also (very common). The suddenly turned responsible characteristics make the free spirit go sour after the honeymoon period is over. Then comes out the hyper sensitive ego to first attack the very first case in hand, the so called miserable by then husbands who is the sole responsible person of the change in update status. Generally, the wives breed very innocently (?) considers that always the male member is to be blamed for the life of so many responsibilities which grow every other day despite the many modern home and personal life serving gears.


So let us go through a quick list of the many attributes and the styles of the outburst suppressed always to show that they simply don’t care, but yes they do care a lot and for many a times.

1. Very cold vibes when they meet in public as if there is an undercurrent but unspoken of.

2. They try to show that they understand the misery of the both situation well, but can you smell something is burning????

3. The housewives try to improve their cooking to prove many things and then the budget goes up as of course they will need to send one small bowl of serving to the side door Non-Housewife (oh well she feels pity as the other don get time to cook delicious so much in fashion recipes for her family).

4. The housewives tend to stylise and glamourise the neighbourhood parties/get-togethers with much relaxing attitude to prove the other one as if the hectic schedules are mere unnecessary curse.

5. You better shy away from t he scene if there is group in the vicinity who tend to mix well in the neighbourhood of the housewives and compared to them the other wins the minority card. They will make the other minority brigade feel almost like an alien talking about all the more negligible but so important household knick-knacks.

6. Then the daily soap syndrome. The busy bee (though all tend to have part time helping hand with modern household equipments) housewives tend to talk about the TV daily shows like most urgent need and trend in the market and if they find an working odd one out and who is short of time for such an important element of life then it’s a bonus mark above the expectation.

7. Then if they have children then both the league has another topic to fire upon. And God bless those children who have to bear the brunt of unnecessary competition to prove the superiority.

8. The modern trend of keeping fit and slim is another topic where the two opponents again try to battle but often tend to agree very unwanted way that marriage with numerous burdens takes a toll on their once so hourglass figure!

9. Then universal problem of maids is another rare topic where they very rarely agree and they can talk about it longer without getting too irritating.

10. The ultra modern and costly mobile phones in the branded purses of the non-housewives are not at all a thing to exhibit if they do not want to remember a famous phrase which goes like, ‘hell hath furry’. Sometimes the vibrations are enough to make one leave a place.

11. It is advisable to the non-housewives brigade not to talk about work/official things in front of the other group if one does not want to feel some icy vibes around.

12. It may be injurious to emotional irritating hormone to present a very professional attitude in front of the housewives fraternity as they may act like the other one simply do not exist for them. Professional attitude may be referred to as money power, official outdoor trip without family and corporate culture for that matter.


Well it’s better to conclude as this can be an extensive list of characteristics.

Very importantly being a non-housewife I really do salute the effort and energy the housewives put in their home and family 23 x 7. My next hub will be dedicated to them and it will be not a fun hub for sure. It’s a big promise( trying hard actually not to offend anybody out here).

Disclaimer Clause: It is not intended to compare the status anyway here. It’s just a hub to have some fun which I really had while writing it. No intention anyway to hurt the ego and sentiment of my fellow married league. Let me declare honestly, I am a wife first then a mother and (oh so sorry!) a non-house wife. Though it pure incidental whatever is described here, not a personal experience. And very honestly I have many super active, super talented and super glamorous housewife friends to be proud of who can anytime give a real run for the non-housewife category. My request to all my housewife friends please to consider it as fun read only.

(Oh am I feeling so guilty after writing it…and the answer is well yes and should I post it, there my risk taking aptitude got better of me)

      Hey dear you are always true for sure,

      I promised in my earlier hub that i will write one totally for homemakers only, hence this one. There are many other types of the homemakers with a slight twist with bigger then life professional success stories as well. But as promised i intended to keep my thoughts under scanner and complete circle of my promised area only strictly.

      Thank you for your kind visit and comment here.

      luv always

      Very interesting point of view. Yes, amusing. Don't forget there is another side to this too. The woman who is a stay at home but at the same time runs her own Internet business. I believe they are in a league of their own. Anyway this was an interesting read.

      THANK you all for your precious comment. This is my first attempt to write something for pure fun element. Otherwise I am always more attracted about everything that catches my attention in a very serious style of mindset. Then all must have understood my anxiety about how this hub will be accepted ( or flagged off) here among all so brilliant hubbers. To be honest I even did not had the courage to log in and check the status ( whether it is still on) . Some attempt to write a fun hub really took a toll on me....ha ha ha.

      And my gratitude knows no bound for my dear friends here,

      Mary ( tillsontitan ) , for your honest comment here. Its a real inspiration dear Friend, I will try to polish and re-polish in my next effort (will I have that much courage again ?) to write something like this one.


      IntegrityYes ...oh I am much thankful again for your visit and comment and yes,,,votes. It means most specially for this hub.


      BlossomSB , thank you. for your most precious comment here. Its like I am discovering myself anew with my first ever effort to put up a fun hub and as you are saying 'its fun'...oh it indeed means a lot to me.


      Oh dear Jan,

      you are really kind . You do not know how much I am inspired by your words specially in this hub.



      Dear Sueswan,

      yes I do agree completely with you. Its a lighter way to put up the idea here. My next hub surely will be on house wives. Its real tough job without much pay.

      Many thanks for your votes as well.

      I voted this up because I recognize your use of sarcasm throughout. Your disclaimer at the beginning of the hub covers any offense anyone might feel...real or imagined. With a little polish this could be hilarious.l
