I hope you're not misinterpreting what I said. I'm not saying that it's necessarily a woman's responsibility to cook and clean. If the woman has a full-time career, (2) does not apply. I'm referring to women who do not have a career and want to get married specifically so they don't have to work but don't actually want to do the things that being a houswife involves. If one partner is working full-time and the other part-time or not at all, the latter is the one who needs to be doing the cooking and cleaning IMO, not just going out and spending the former's money. I think this would apply equally to house husbands and same-sex couples. Do you disagree?
