    If they are running a business, "real world" or internet, good for them.

    If they are just laying around, shopping, playing tennis, etc., while their husbands work, they are parasites good for just sex.  They better have good pre-nups.  They are going to be kicked to the curb when their hubbies trade them in for newer models after they get 30,000 miles on their asses.

    as long as they work, i'm for it. if they don't work and are "housewives" as we used to call it, then that's ok too. some men like that and if she has a significant other who is ok with that, so am i.
    if they "work" by collecting a check from the government and are not married to their live-in just so they can collect, then i've got an issue with this.
    single women of all races even without kids, are collecting a check and it angers me. some single men do the same. if you can work, do so. if not apply for disability.
    as afr as working in the home, i like it. i do that on my computer and make a few bucks for spending money. i also claim it and pay my taxes, though i disagree with the way they are imposed, it's the law. work, pay taxes, and live as you choose. it's all good as long as you aren't hurting someone else.

    I totally agree with dabeaner. If a woman is going to be living with you, married or not, she needs to outwardly show her long lasting worth. Sex is awesome, but if you're going to be staying at home, you need to be making me dinner and doing laundry. And I am not trying to be sexist in any aspect, for if we both had jobs, then we would both have to cook, clean, and do other household chores.

    However, if the man is bringing home the bacon, the woman needs to be cooking it for breakfast. Enough said

    If both parties agree then why shouldn't she work in the home. It's none of our business. Some men like to come home to a clean house, dinner ready, laundry done but she should also be entitled to go out for lunch with friends, play tennis etc if she wants to -after all she's not a maid.
    Having said that, some women are lazy and they not only don't go out to work but their house is a mess, they never bother with the garden or keeping on top of  matters and this would understandably be frustrating for a guy.

    Working in the home without children sounds like heaven. Working in the home WITH children?  Who could get anything done?  If you have children, never work at home.  Work in the real world where your work counts.  If you're childless?  Heck!  Stay home!
