    Default Young Stay at home wives with no kids here?

    Hi Gals! I was wondering if there are any other young wives (or not married, maybe getting married or just living together, whatever) that make their home their job instead of working outside the home with no kids?
    I'd like to get to know some of you. :-)

    We have no children and I am 51, I have only worked off and on through our 33 marriage. I used to get flack for staying home w/no kids but my dsis and my friends benefited from me being home! I always figured if we could afford my not working then I would stay home and let someone else who wanted/needed to work have the job I would be filling!

    I consider myself young, hehe, at 35, one child that'll be outta the house in a year, so I feel like a house wife. Stay at home just doesn't sit right when the kid drives, has a job and is rarely home. And my 'job' is taking care of the house, no outside income. Do I count?

    I work sporadically, and I've been a homemaker more years of the marriage than not. DH and I are both 27, together for 8 years, no kidlets.

    What I wanted to know from you all is how do you handle all the flack you get from being a housewife instead of working outside the home?

    I don't believe in rudeness or sarcastic comebacks, I used to but realized as I got older it's not necessary. I guess I don't let it bother me and I also don't complain if we are tight for money except to my close friends. All of us either work very part time right now or not at all so we all except each others ways of doing things. I do work very part time in a preschool, 9-12 hours a week, if I wanted I could start back computer consulting with dh. The only reason I took this job is because it is easy, fun and the women I work with are wonderful especially my teacher. When it stops being fun or I have to get a "real" job as my dh says I will!

    I also volunteer at my church and in the past have done hospital volunteering and have always worked with teenage girls. I would like to start working with meals on wheels!

    Even though I have 5 kids I still get the "Why don't you get a job?". I just tell them that it was a family choice, my dh, my kids, and myself all want me at home, so that's wher I am. I've told my dh that I'll get a job once the kids are older or after they leave home and he says no to both, he wants me at home.
