HUSBAND GOT PROMOTED, TELLS WIFE TO QUIT JOB AND BECOME HOUSEWIFE

My husband and I both work fulltime. He recently got a promotion and he now makes twice what I do. Since he got the promotion, he has been pressuring me to quit my job and be a fulltime housewife.

The reason that my husband is into this idea is because that would make me responsible for all the cooking and cleaning.

Right now we split chores evenly since we both work similar hours, and I like that arrangement. My husband is not a fan, he hates having to do chores around the house.

I admit that I would love to not have to work, but the tradeoff being offered is not appealing to me. I suggested that my husband should use some of the extra income to hire a maid service, and then neither of us would have to do the chores.

He accused me of “just wanting to coast off of his money without doing anything” and has been annoyed all morning that I suggested it.

  • So he says you are “coasting off his money” but isn’t he wanting to “coast off your labor”. And whatever you do, don’t quit your job. Ever.
  • “Since he got the promotion, he has been pressuring me to quit my job and be a fulltime housewife.”
    First red flag, that’s a big nope, good buddy.
    “Right now we split chores evenly since we both work similar hours, and I like that arrangement. My husband is not a fan, he hates having to do chores around the house.”
    Why do men think women LOVE cleaning? We do it anyway because we’re adults and not disgusting animals.
    “I admit that I would love to not have to work, but the tradeoff being offered is not appealing to me.”
    You are smart. You would lose the freedom that comes from having your own income, connections at work, and the ability to continue to grow your career, which will likely become stalled if you quit.
