I didn't get a $160,000 education just to sit on my butt at home... I would definitely rather be a career woman.

Hi I have not seen you here for a long time.
To be honest at this particular time I would rather be neither a carreer woman nor a housewife.
I would like to be just a traveller .I suffer so much because of this carreer.
I really    love China,半个 中国 人

I would prefer a career woman , the reason is simple , I am a career man , I found out late that to have a career is to have independance and security , a woman needs a certain independance and she ...


I hope that if i would find a right man like you...

but I know to be  a house wife that your husband must have strong financial backups to allow you to be a happy housewife..
***always to be yourself***

Personally I would take either or both as a mate. I don't have a problem with a woman with a career or who wants to stay home.

a housewife~~~

now it's a half-half...

Once i was impressed by a TV show in which the hostess said being a housewife was also a career and not easy to carry on. Housewife means more than staying at home, doing washing and cleaning. It is a job for a wife to manage a family in an all-round way, if not finanically.

I want to be a perfect housewife one day, if my husband has no problem with that.

Only got one vote with two points, oh unfair!

1. I'd like to stretch the housewife-thingy a bit farther.  How about an educated wife who teaches her kids at home full time? I meant home schooling, the kids stay at home and don't go to school.

2. Recently, there is one extraordinary phenomenon taking place quietly and sweeping through the North American continent, which is called as "The super women are coming home!". More and more career women are dropping out of the corporation rat race or quitting their high profile professional positions, coming home and staying at home and taking care of their kids. They usually stay at home for about five years on average, some of them re-enter the workforce, and some start their own business later on.

The survey result has shown that most of those women did not regret their choices and enjoyed the quality time they have spent with their kids and families, although they have given up their careers.

As a guy, I salute those women!
