Spread the love

Four years ago my sister got married. She married quite happily: her husband has an apartment, a car, and a good job. Just the kind of man that most girls and women dream of – he is both loving and good-looking, and has money. And everything in their family was fine until a year ago when her sister lost her job and stayed at home as a “housewife”. And if at first she really looked for a job, now she just decided that her husband had to support her and she could afford to stay home.

Four years ago my sister got married. She married quite happily: her husband has an apartment, a car, and a good job. Just the kind of man that most girls and women dream of – he is both loving and good-looking, and has money. And everything in their family was fine until a year ago when her sister lost her job and stayed at home as a “housewife”. And if at first she really looked for a job, now she just decided that her husband had to support her and she could afford to stay home.

And it wouldn’t be any of my business, but I can clearly see that things are heating up in their family. My husband doesn’t like the fact that he is working hard to provide for his family, while his wife is spending money left and right without much thought as to where it came from or who earned it. My timid attempts to talk sense into my sister, to hint that this is not the way to do things, were firmly rebuffed. She said that I was minding my own business and that she was doing everything right. I do not really want her marriage to break up because of her laziness and selfishness. And our mother is very worried and also understands that her sister is doing the wrong thing and that all this will not end well.

Personally, I believe that a husband should not and does not have to support a young and healthy wife, and even if there are no children yet. In these technological times, with microwaves, dishwashers, washing machines, vacuum cleaners and multivargers, women do not have much time or energy to keep the house comfortable. Without work, a woman gradually degenerates and turns into a “mummy in a robe and big wool”.

How do I explain to my sister that her husband should not support a grown-up aunt, and that her behavior will be a pain for her and for us, the people who sincerely love her?
