think about it.
Saying “I am a housewife!” or “I am a househusband!” might be a title of pride for some people. and yeah, I love staying at home and cooking and cleaning while my husband goes to work for me. but I prefer the term “Housespouse.” Not only do I believe it sounds better, but doesnt the husband ,or the wife, do the SAME THINGS if they stay at home while the other works?
Whether its the husband or the wife at home, there’s still cleaning to be done, things to be fixed, dinners to be prepared, calls to be made, and if there’s kids, well, kids to take care of! It doesn’t really matter who is doing it because it’s still being done. That’s why I prefer saying housespouse. Because there’s no difference between a housewife or a househusband. So really all you’re doing is pointing out the gender of the spouse that’s doing all the work at home!
