I believe there’s a lot of limitations if you were to be a housewife. If you want kids, you gotta spend below your means and also not expect a holiday every year. Eating out would also be a luxury and not the norm. (Ofc unless the husband really rich at lmao)
But that said, as a child, I really liked my mom as a housewife as I got a very good upbringing. Life is all about opportunity costs. You give one you take one. You cannot take everything.
