I personally think that if they're doing well financially it's not that big of a deal for the woman to continue "Staying at home" because even though the kids are raised or in school doesn't mean they still don't need help from time to time. Plus it doesn't mean the wife is going to eat bon bons all day and watch "One Life to Live". I hope to continue being a housewife so I can help out my children when needed and so I can indulge in some hobbies that I'm currently putting off for my children. I also would love to serve the community and be a big part of that. I don't like that people think it's "lazy" of me to do that.
I wish my mom could be a housewife now. She's even said that whenever one of us kids is going through a tough time or just had a baby or something that she wishes she didn't have to work so she could be the one helping us. As it is she's too busy with work to influence our lives in that way.
