My mother is a stay-at-home wife and mother. When I was growing up, she read to me every day in two languages, packed my lunch every morning in my blue Transformers lunchbox, and helped me with my homework in the afternoon. Her genuine care and attention instilled in me the confidence I needed to succeed. She is the best mom and wife one could ever ask for, and I am looking for the same to create my family. I hope that's OK, Patti. . .
I was surprised to meet Tori Spelling, she is a lovely lady, and seems to be doing well as a mother, wife, and businesswoman. This is great and would work for me!
First, we need to define the difference between career woman, and business woman. A career woman is a doctor or an accountant, one that studies and then gets a job 9-5 every day. A businesswoman, on the other hand, can be a variety of things, but as an example say she is a designer with her own label and a few shops. I am not looking for a career woman that is climbing the corporate ladder. It definitely makes being a mother and wife far more difficult, but more importantly, we would be of completely different mentalities. If she is in the office all the time, this cannot be good for the development of young children.
Second, is the issue of freedom. If the husband is a semi-retired millionaire, that lifestyle does not exactly match up with a career person. How are unplanned days and spontaneous getaways to far away places supposed to work if "permission" is needed from some "boss"? When I find my match I want us to both have the freedom to enjoy our lives together, and share unique experiences. Isn't that the point!?!
