I know of a woman who likes to describe herself as a "devoted homemaker". She is young, has no children, and her husband is the only source of income in her home. Her house is always a complete mess (until her spouse comes home from work and washes dishes and laundry). She spends the majority of her time on her couch watching television and gossiping on-line and on the phone with her fellow "devoted homemakers". Her "free time" is usually filled with nail and hair appoinments, and other outlets for her love of spending her husband's hard-earned money. In my opinion, these are not the actions of a "homemaker". This is the lifestyle of a "housewife".
By definition, a homemaker is just that: a person who makes there house a home. Yet, in our society this term seems to be picked up by any woman who is married and unemployed. What are your thoughts on this subject?
