The HIMYM finale

This post contains spoilers for the How I met your mother sitcom finale.

I don't know where to begin! I don't watch much TV and when I do, it's with my husband. This show had been part of our lives for the past nine years! It's about the quest for family and true love for the main character Ted.

I hate that Barney and Robin got divorced, that the mother died and that Ted goes back to Robin! It goes against everything the show stood for, plus it was majorly depressing for a sitcom...

Moving and downsizing

We are moving again! We are also moving into a much smaller rental in a new town. We'll need to get rid of a lot of stuff! We don't need all that stuff anyway.

I am anxious to buy a home of our own, but with all those moves into new towns it is hard to know where we'll end up settling down...We will be renting for at least another four years.

Do women "have" to work?

Suzanne Venker tells it as it is again:

Really, it's possible to live on one income if you live a bit like in the past: smaller home, one car, less vacations, etc.

Housewives almost non existent in commercials...

Because of feminism, advertisers are thinking twice before depicting suburban housewives in their ads:

Focusing on marriage

Before I got married, I was growing up with my parents and siblings. I was going to school and held a few part time jobs, such as cashier, receptionist and teaching piano.

My husband has always made enough for us to live on and I always felt the need to focus all my time and energy to our home and marriage.

Our mothers only worked a few years in the beginning of their marriages. Nowadays, women are often times valued only by the money they bring in, which is a result of feminism. It's a shame really!
