Deciding whether you should be a working woman or a housewife is not an easy task. There are so many benefits and disadvantages to both. Being a working woman allows you to be more in charge of your future and lets you have a hand in shaping the world, but then you're forced to put your personal life on the back burner to further yourself in your professional career. Being a housewife, you know you're provided for and you get to spend more time with your kids. On the other hand, relying on someone else to bring home the bacon is nerve-racking and unsettling. Plus, you won't have the ability to do what you want. So, what's a woman like yourself to do when dealing with this dilemma? Take our quiz, of course! Based on how you answer the following questions, we'll determine whether you should be a housewife or a working woman. Ready to see which path is best for you? Take the quiz now!
