Traditional gender roles

I like our traditional roles in our household. My husband provides while I do the rest. This is not widely accepted where I live, where feminism is rampant. Men have become weaker and women, bossier...

You don't have to have kids in order to stay home, there is plenty to do!

A lot of career women just don't understand homemakers though. They think we are confined to the house or worse, lazy and uneducated...

I am college educated but I choose home and marriage over work!

New link

You'll notice that I added a new link:

http://womenagainstfeminism.tumblr.com/

This link has sparked a lot of twitter posts and news articles!

I myself am not a fan of feminism, well at least the most extreme kind. I don't think we need feminism anymore.

I'm back

Hi everyone,

We are back from our lovely vacation. We went to a place we used to call home.

I've been thinking lately how wonderful the idea of homeschooling is. I myself was not homeschooled but I spent several months finishing HS with a long distance program before heading to college.

Not every parent is suited for this of course, my own mother told me she wouldn't have had the patience for it, but I just see how good it might be for kids to learn with their parents every day.

What do you think?

Vacation

We'll be going on vacation next week so there will be no posts from me for a while. I hope you're having a great summer!

A place of our own

So our apartment is quite cozy and has the right amount of space for us, but since paying rent is a bit like throwing away money, I long for a place of our own...

Practically speaking, a ranch would make sense as I have knee problems, but I would very much like a two-level Victorian house as well! I found a design I like and I dream of building it someday.

Housing

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate it! We have a way to go before we could afford a house...

My dream is to own a ranch style house with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a nice kitchen and yard.

Buying vs. building

In the spirit of my previous post, I'd like to address home buying vs. building a house. It is my dream to buy a piece of land and build a custom house; however it seems very laborious...

If you had a choice, which one would you choose and why?

Renting vs. owning

Is it cheaper to rent or to buy where you live? I lived in two different houses before I got married and since then, lived in four different apartments, so we've never been homeowners because it is too expensive, plus we moved towns each time. This apartment though is the nicest one so far!

I of course long for a house we could settle down in. Hopefully soon!

The history of married women in the workforce

In the 19th century, very little women worked compared to now!
