A Working Spouse Vs. A Full Pledge Housewife

For the first few months of being married to my husband Tony , it was so hard for me to adjust being a full pledge housewife. I am used to working way back in the Philippines and I can't stand being at home just doing things that a good wife should do.

It was boring to be just in the house, doing the same thing over and over again. Although I have a lot of time to spend with my husband. Likewise, I want to help my husband with our finances and of course I want to have my own money. I don't really like asking my husband about money matters because It feels weird.I have the right though since I'm his wife but I am just not used
to the idea.

Then, time comes that I am allowed to work here in the US. I was so excited at first, at last I'll be able to meet people and be able to make friends with them. Wow it feels like i'm free again although I have to maintain my duty as a wife.

Work is fun at all times, the co-workers are very nice and my managers too. They made work easier for me. I had a day-off ones a week or two days a week. Then there are just times that i wanted to stay at home especially when my husband is off for a week or two or everytime he had his day off.

Being a wife and just staying in the house are fun too and good but there are just some days that you wish that you are doing something else.

Being a working spouse is very good in the sense that you will be able to help your partner with your finances and secure your future. And at the same time you have to juggle or balance everything as a wife and a working spouse.

Its up to you if how you will managed your time to be able to do your duty wisely. I love being a wife and at the same time being a working spouse.

If I can do it, I know you can do it. Just keep on believing on yourself, don't give up.
