Question for homemaker


In response to Terrance Wolferman’s Dec. 15 letter regarding one of the families he interviewed: My question is, if the husband in this family was laid off, why was his wife, the homemaker, not out looking for a job instead of expecting an automatic handout from the government?

A lot of us women would love to stay home and raise our children, but it doesn’t work this way, not if you are self-reliant and responsible.

I’m not asking this to be heartless, just curious.
