My husband says I should not work but look after the home all the time. I told him my ideas to work from home, but he denied that too. Its frustrating. He says I should ask his permission to have new friends and to go out.Now that I am sitting at home with dullness, lack of enthusiasm and energy which I had before.

I lead a very independent life before marriage and this seems too hard for me to digest.

Friends please suggest me what can be done.

I started selling Jewelry with Paparazzi Accessories - I am happier because I have something that is my own and it is nice to get out of the house. I was a stay at home mom for 5 1/2 years, and got used to the home life of being in comfy sweats all the time, etc... but now I look forward to getting dressed to see how I can accessorize that day to be my own walking advertisement. You earn 45% commission, and because all the items are only $5 it sells fast! I profited $185 in one weekend at 2 parties, not bad for 5 hours of "work." You don't have to do the parties to be successful, you can create a website or facebook store using a VendorSocial app to sell from home. You just add the jewelry you have on hand to the store and market it. Can give you links to my upline for direct support, which includes the #1 consultant in the company.

I think it may be time to stand up for yourself and do what you need to do. Sounds like he does not want you to have any independence at all. The only one who can change your life is you.

Start a direct sales company and work from home online. I sell thirtyone gifts and have 4 kids so my business is entirely online or if I'm out someone will want to know where I got my bag just make sure he knows that him and the house are 1st priority. 31 is baseed on proverbs 31 virtuous woman. Good luck.
