    What I Want For Myself...

    ...isn't necessarily what is best for everyone, but when I am married I kind of want to stay at home or have a small job (teacher's aide, part time). I have very traditional values on marriage, but I realize it isn't for everyone. Still, I want nothing more than to be a housewife...

    Are You Kidding Me

    you all actually want to be pushed around by your husbands? you can do anything you want to but you just let him tell you what to do thats crazy. I would never want anyone to tell me what to do exspecially not a stupid guy. I will never get married for that reason.

    Most of the closest examples of what a woman
