The main reason a lot of people get a wife is so they have someone to wash their underpants. They may wear underpants but a lot of men that cannot afford a maid, cleaner, cook, nanny and Sugar Baby or not so different to how the uncivilized Germanic barbarians used to be. Their barbarian wives lived horrid, base and domestic lives. If you have a wife then at least get her a cleaner to clean the house twice a week or something. And wash clothes. Or an au pair. Then they won't end up crying to Oprah or Ellen about how unfulfilled and underappreciated they feel.

A housewife has the most versatile, most interesting job. Unfortunately, most housewives don't appreciate their freedom and their jobs and instead complain and moan too much.

I don't think they should be paid...I don't think it is an job or occupation.They are doing the hous ...

Of course it is a job, an occupation but a woman has the choice to become a housewife or simply a wife who contributes half to the household finance and pays half of the salary o a domestic servant.

As a man who has done more housework than my wife and my previous partners I do not feel this occupation should be remunerated. It is a civilised person's job. If you live alone then you do your housework alone, and if you are married then you split the  chores between the two of you.

Hey you!

Do you really need to pretend that a young, attractive-looking woman in a sexy dress is fit to be a housewife in the kitchen?

The woman in your photography should have a university degree and help her husband earn income for their common household.

If she spurns job offers then she deserves no better but to be confined to the couple's household. She married him precisely because she expected him to support her. She gets enough from him for her little effort.

Before you lash out saying women get oppressed by their husbands who do not allow them to make extra money, think whether these women really get oppressed or whether they perhaps oppress their husbands. Chinese women really are relatively emancipated and free. A husband can hardly force his wife to not fulfil her realistic and legitimate dreams.
