This is really a curiosity question. I know many of you are SAHMs, and that is a job title I completely respect and applaud! (Just not for me!) But, do you find the phrase 'house wife' offensive? Or is it a phrase for a generation ago of SAHMs. My mom always called herself a 'house wife' and the joke is that I keep house just as badly as she does-we are both cluttered people. I have to say that since my parents moved and downsized, my mom realyl does keep a much cleaner home than what I grew up in. I laugh if I am called a house wife. It gives the impression that my house is spotless, which is further from the truth!
