Find a housewife
By Christian Gollayan. May 24, pm Updated July 26, pm. Every weekday evening, Ash Krikorian, 35, comes home from work to a spotless apartment and an Armenian dish prepared by his year-old wife, Gaya. It really works for us. In March, a multipart study at the University of Michigan and the University of Texas at Austin found that young people today are more likely to believe a man should be the head of the household than previous generations were. Since they both come from traditional patriarchal Armenian families, most people in their lives have been supportive of this arrangement.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Dr. Dre - Housewife (Feat.

Meet the millennial women proud to be housewives
By Lauren Libbert for the Daily Mail. When he turns his key in the lock of his London home at the end of a long day, Daniel Tredget knows he will be greeted by an immaculate house, a hot meal and — more often than not — the delicious, soul-warming smell of a freshly baked cake.
While Daniel, who works as an accountant, has spent his day immersed in spreadsheets and client meetings, his wife, Emily, will have spent hers sieving flour, chopping vegetables and ironing his shirts. It's a domestic set-up straight out of the Fifties, which bears little resemblance to the frantic, juggling lifestyles of most families today. Yet Daniel and Emily aren't a staid, middle-aged couple set in their ways. At just 30 and 28 respectively, they're the most modern of Britons: millennials.
Cathy and her husband, Kuma, are pictured above with their one-year-old, Omari. Born between the early Eighties and late Nineties, millennials are from a generation that celebrates its liberal values, priding itself on equality in all things — especially between the genders.
But lately, there has been a sense of rebellion among the ranks. Increasing numbers of high-flying millennial women are turning their backs on the workplace to be stay-at-home mothers. Recent studies have found that young adults are more likely than their parents to support traditional gender roles, with a study published in the Psychology of Women Quarterly finding that 32 per cent of millennials believe men are best suited to being breadwinners and women homemakers.
This figure is up an incredible 27 per cent from the Nineties. The figures tie in with those showing the popularity of marriage is rising after 40 years' decline and that millennials are more socially conservative than previous generations.
The movement is also fuelled by glossy websites and blogs that promote staying at home to women — one such site offers a support group to millennial housewives, while the hashtag wifelife has around half-a-million mentions on Instagram. So, why are young women ditching hard-won — and often lucrative — jobs in favour of homemaking?
It's certainly not because of a dearth of career options. Emily has five A-grade A-levels, a degree in material sciences from Oxford and had a high-flying job as a strategic consultant at drinks company Innocent before giving birth to her son, Oliver, who is now two. Emily returned to work two days a week when Oliver was a year old, but she was quickly disillusioned.
Cathy explains that her decision to be a stay-at-home mum was fuelled by a desire to recreate her own idyllic childhood. This fear of no longer excelling is what clinical psychologist Christine Langhoff believes is prompting some high-flying millennial mothers — unused to failure after years of shining educationally — to quit the world of work.
Emily, whose own mother stayed at home, found that trying to juggle her job and motherhood left her feeling inadequate on all fronts. Emily Tredget has a degree in material sciences from Oxford and had a high-flying job as a strategic consultant at a drinks company before giving birth to her son. Now she's a stay-at-home mum. It was in my first month back at work, a new job, and I remember thinking that no one would believe I could be relied on to be there.
Managing solely on her husband's income means the couple must be more frugal — swapping exotic holidays for caravanning and designer baby clothes for second hand — but Emily believes the benefits far outweigh any downsides. While they may be reaping the benefits when it comes to their family life, this new breed of millennial housewife can find themselves criticised for wasting their education — or, worse, they become objects of pity.
When I didn't have that, I felt as though I'd lost my identity. Indeed, as women have children later — the average age of a first-time mother in the UK is now I don't believe in it at all. I think we're trying to fix a way of living, of life and relationships, that wasn't broken. Cathy explains that her decision to be a stay-at-home mum was fuelled by a desire to recreate her own idyllic childhood, in which she and her five siblings were raised by their mother while her doctor father went out to work.
Kuma, who earns substantially more than his wife did, supported her decision, and Cathy believes their new arrangement has boosted their relationship on every level.
We feel very close and we spend more time together,' says Cathy. She's not the only woman to find that leaving the boardroom — and adopting more traditionally 'womanly' tasks — can lead to greater satisfaction in the bedroom. She's pictured above with her husband Jason, and their children, Brooke, 22 months, and week-old Alfie. A study found that when men did 'feminine' chores around the house — such as washing, cooking or vacuuming — couples had sex 1.
The women also reported greater sexual satisfaction if their husband performed more masculine tasks. However, being a stay-at-home mother is not without its downsides — not least the loss of financial independence that high-flying women take for granted. For women used to commanding a decent salary, having to ask their husband for 'pocket money' can feel demeaning. While my husband always tells me it's our money, I don't always feel that way, as I'm not putting anything in the pot.
It's a situation with which year-old Katie Meade, mum to Brooke, 22 months, and week-old Alfie, can sympathise. Moreover, Katie believes that supporting the family financially has boosted her husband's ego. Katie believes that having her husband support the family financially has boosted his ego.
Katie said that she found the idea of 'having it all' to be a complete myth in the real world. Indeed, some experts claim that the shift back towards traditional gender roles — man as breadwinner, woman as homemaker — helps men feel. And just as Theresa May and her husband Philip claimed in an interview earlier this year that there were 'boy jobs and girl jobs', in Katie's home there are 'pink jobs and blue jobs'.
I look after the children, do the laundry, organise our finances. Jason does the 'blue jobs': he takes out the bins, does DIY, hangs pictures on the wall, mows the lawn,' says Katie. If Jason vacuums, he won't do the edges of the room. He doesn't see what I see and I can't help pointing it out.
I am a perfectionist. Things have to be my way. So why do utterly modern young women like Katie hold such old-fashioned views on marriage and family life? For many millennial women, the key lies in their own childhoods. Having watched their working mothers attempt the juggling act of 'having it all' — and seen them dropping a few balls in the process — they're reluctant even to try to combine motherhood with a demanding career. Such arrangements are par for the course for the working mother — an expensive merry-go-round of childcare and stress that young women such as Katie, Cathy and Emily are in no hurry to leap on.
Katie says: 'I found the idea that "you can have it all" to be a complete myth. Argos AO.

Why millennial women want to be housewives
A sweeping survey of the changing image and perception of the housewife in America from colonial times to the present, this groundbreaking book provides an essential historical backdrop to Betty Glenna Matthews. Housewives constitute a large section of the population, yet they have received very little attention, let alone respect. Glenna Matthews, who herself spent many years as "just a housewife" before becoming a scholar of American history, sets out to redress this imbalance. While the male world of work has always received the most respect, Matthews maintains that widespread reverence for the home prevailed in the nineteenth century.

The 1950s Housewife
Being a stay-at-home mum is nothing new. Born in west London, , my early childhood was conventional. Traditional if you will, with my mother staying at home, while my dad worked double shifts as a postman in order to keep food on the table. Joyce was an ex-nurse, married to Eddie, with three gigantic sons and I mean, gigantic - my dad is 6"7 , whom she fed three square meals, and dusted around during the day.
What I dreamed of was being an old-fashion homemaker. Even as an adult I still have an idealistic view of a woman whose primary job is to take care of their family. What happens to those programs in school? Not everyone would agree, but I call it the most important job a woman can have.
All I Want to be is a Housewife
From the title of this post, it is safe to assume that you might already know what I want to talk about this week. But, nonetheless, I do feel like some level of judgement happens for a lot of reasons by people we know or are related to. This choice in being a housewife seems almost unheard of for women right now.
Thank you for visiting Millennial Housewife! Welcome to a place of support, inspiration, and badass housewives. There is an exciting movement of millennial women who are choosing to stay home with their kids and run the household and maybe a side-hustle. They are called the Millennial Housewife. My name is Tesse, and I too am struggling with money while being a Millennial Housewife. I too am an aspiring mompreneur looking to build a life of my dreams.
Signs You’re Dating A Man Who Wants A Housewife
This was the age of respectability and conformity. Very few women worked after getting married; they stayed at home to raise the children and keep house. The man was considered the head of the household in all things; mortgages, legal documents, bank accounts. Only the family allowance was paid directly to the mother. Should a woman find herself in a loveless or violent marriage, she was trapped; she had no money of her own and no career. It was still unusual for women to go to university, especially working class women. Most left school and went straight into work until they married.
I am currently a twenty-year-old engineering student who has had the fortune of discovering the insanities of feminism at a young age. Considering that I have already acquired a very good job, once I graduate I intend on marrying a Christian woman. To state it plainly, I want a Christian woman who wants to be a housewife, but it seems my views are in the minority, even amongst many Christians.
How To Be A Good Housewife In The Modern Era
Когда она приблизилась к последнему контрольно-пропускному пункту, коренастый часовой с двумя сторожевыми псами на поводке и автоматом посмотрел на номерной знак ее машины и кивком разрешил следовать. Она проехала по Кэнин-роуд еще сотню метров и въехала на стоянку С, предназначенную для сотрудников. Невероятно, - подумала она, - двадцать шесть тысяч служащих, двадцатимиллиардный бюджет - и они не могут обойтись без меня в уик-энд.

Она посмотрела на него, потом на кольцо. Глаза ее увлажнились. - О, Дэвид… у меня нет слов. - Скажи. Она отвернулась.
