"some basic info"
The Oxford Dictionary of Current English defines housewife as "a woman whose main occupation is caring for her family and running the household." In today's modern society, there are fewer domestic engineers than there were one or two generations ago. Even so, more individuals (men can do this too,) are eschewing the 9-5 job and returning to this noble profession. Now, how one organizes and delegates the list of household duties is subject to each couple's understanding, their income level, the working spouse's job demands, and the respective talents of each spouse. Most wives in the 1950's had one job: to be a homemaker. This meant wives must not only clean the house but also truly make a home. Being a homemaker in the 1950's meant caring for both your family and your house, as well as presenting yourself as picture-perfect throughout the day. The roles of a housewife, more commonly called a homemaker, have orientated primarily around domestic tasks. A housewife concerns herself with various home-keeping work like raising the children, preparing meals and cleaning the house . However, the traditional roles reserved for a housewife have changed since the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Gender roles are changing, with more husbands contributing to housework and the raising of children. A housewife is the traditional female complement to the male breadwinner in a married couple. Housewives are women, although househusbands are becoming more common. These are men who don't work for a paycheck outside of the home, but instead focus their energies on caring for the home and its occupants. Exact housewifely duties vary depending on the individual desires and circumstances of the couple; however, there are some commonly accepted duties among housewives. Housewives play a huge role in their families . However, not everyone fits into the traditional housewife role.
