If they have the money and they want to I guess... Why not? She is giving someone else a pay check who may really need the money

I'm going to say no. That would not be a NEED. Hell dh and I work and don't NEED that. We get all the deep cleaning and organizing in. :P Some WANT it however.

I'm currently ttc, we have someone come in and clean during my 2ww so I don't touch the chemicals in cleaning supplies. We also bought a 400 dollar automatic cat potty that self cleans so I don't touch cat litter. Does that make me lazy? Or cautious and smart?

If they want to, sure! :) My child is almost 18, and there is only three of us in our home, but my husband offers to hire a housekeeper for me on a weekly basis. 

My next door neighbor is also a SAHM. She has a housekeeper, a cook, and a gardener. She also has a mother's helper three days a week. It's the lifestyle they choose to lead. :)

i wouldn't, but i don't care if someone else does it.  at the very least they're creating job opportunity!

If they want to, sure. Creates a job for someone that needs/wants one.

If they have the money and they want to. I have one and my kids are 12, 13 and 15. Nobody knows my reasons and I pay for it out of the money we work for.

If we could afford it, I definitely would. I would also hire someone to do the lawn.
