  • Well, I'm a Christian wife, and I'll tell you straight up, I'd much rather read a good book or play on cafemom. I understand wanting a maid. You husband should help with some chores. You take care of the kids and have little adult conversation during the day. He can help. Our husbands are called to love us... and one way of showing us love is changing diapers and helping with the dishes!

  • No religion is going to make you love cleaning - if it could I would convert in a heartbeat! LOL There is nothing wrong with wanting to hire a maid, if we had the extra money I know I would love to have one.

  • When I was a SAHM I definitely wanted a maid sometimes. Now that I work 40 hours a week I want one even more. I don't think most women LOVE to clean... If you were raised with cleaning as a part of your daily activities then it is rather easy. (I have friends with OCD moms who are habitually tidy.) Otherwise, you, like most of us, have to work on it. Your MIL might be one of those women that doesn't mean that because you are a different person doesn't mean you aren't a good christian wife.

  • It's hard to keep everything clean. It's crazy when you just finish cleaning and your child goes behind you and takes it all apart. I think not loving to clean is human.
