An old friend told me the other day that he was in a dilemma,something to do with "relocation" something to do with him being a "house husband" something to do with him being away from his old parents and something to do with his wife earning so much more than he is,(after the relocation)
His wife was promoted to a very high position (she accepted it already) to Shanghai, house provided and the salary package is very attractive, she was to be there for a long time, contract 5 years. My friend actually wanted to stay back in Penang but his wife insisted that they should all relocate to Shanghai and she wanted the children to be there too, to enroll into international school there or to some kind of exposed to "the outside world"
Now my friend's dilemma started when his wife told him that when they "fully relocated" my friend's role will be "officially" amended to "house husband" 男主内。。。to take of the family, to send the boys to school and all the house hold stuff and the best part is he will be given allowance by his wife every month.
He asked me what would I do if I were to be in his position ? My friend is currently running his "cleaning service" business which he can easily sell off to his partner....
I said to him, I really didn't know but relocating to Shanghai sounds kind of cool to me though but being a house husband, I really don't know as far as this is concerned.......
Now I remember another old friend who gave up his hair saloon business,(was kind of small housing estate style) when his wife was doing so well in the MLM business, asking him to "close shop" to be a house husband instead, the last time I had coffee with him,he looked happy............I really don't know.
What do you think ha?
Can men really be a house husband and managing it well or better than the ladies?
P/S : Brothers can do it too, I reckon
