What kind of woman is this?

a woman that marries a guy that has no job, stay home all day, is a stay at home dad, but kids are in school now. He just finds stuff to do all day. He does errands and housework, but he also goes to the gym and rides his bike and plays video games.

She works from home, doesnt apparently care what he's doing. Loves him dearly.

I know she's an insecure lady, had issues with her weight and self image. Recently lost her son, so he's her rock and is a good DH to her, but he doesnt really do anything until the kids are home.

His work and education experience are so obsolete now and he has no real ambitions workwise. I don't see it. Some would call him a loser, I think they are a nice couple.

I personally think he got lucky to find someone based on what he brings to the table. Granted he is quite cute, but there's more than looks, but yes, I'll admit hes nice to look at, a kind soul, and loving to his family and responsible, but he otherwise lacks any drive or desire to work or go to school.

Just wondered what yall think

He seems no different than a SAHM.  And no, that's not a bash against SAHMs. 

Edit: I forgot to answer your question technically.  She's like a husband married to a SAHM.

Are they struggling financially?  If not then who cares.  He gives her what she needs which is love, support and it sounds like he takes care of the home.

If I could have a career bringing in the money my husband is making, I wouldn't mind at ALL if he stayed home.

He's a great daddy and there's something special about stay at home dads that do a good job with the children and household

How is this different than a stay at home mom?

I would think he's a bum.  Men should work to support their families.

Well ya know, she probably does not give a single shit about that opinion of yours.
If that's what she believes she deserves then be it!

yeah your right. Her job covers them fine. If he works its just for something to do, really. He worked last Xmas and never paid attn to the paycheck, it was just nice to get out be a part of the workforce again if only for a couple months. The rest of what you said is pretty spot on :)

Quoting PoplarGrove:

I see him as no different then a sahm. Women have been doing this for years. As long as they can financially afford it and both husband and wife agree with it, then whatever. Whatever works for them.

if they are both happy with the arrangement then who cares? the exact same situation happens daily here with the gender roles reversed and no one has a problem with it.
