The Real Housewives Of UK

Tradwives still going strong in England, here are a couple of recent stories:

A CAREER woman with a degree in Japanese has revealed she's quit work to become a 1950s-style housewife - who has her partner's dinner on the table when he gets home from work.

Part of a growing movement of ‘tradwives’ - short for traditional wives - Jayne Hall is very happy letting engineer Allan be the breadwinner, while she stays home doing the cooking and cleaning.

This one isn't technically a housewife, since she works part-time, but her dedication to cleaning is remarkable:

Speaking exclusively to Fabulous, the married mum-of-three said: "I spend a good seven hours-a-day cleaning and tidying.

"My favourite trick on a weekend is to get up early when the kids are asleep, about 6am. That way, I can get a good three hours in before the kids are even awake.

"I've got a carpet cleaner, so once-a-month I'll give the carpet a clean. I sound obsessive talking about it, but it is so rewarding.

"I know it sounds like the most boring thing in the world and there are some bits I don't like, like ironing.

"But I like pretty much all of it, just spraying things, smelling things. When the kids smell nice in the morning, I know I have done my job."

And the younger generation of British women is quite promising, too:

WHEN mum Rebecca Conway heard about the TradWife movement - where wives do everything and their husbands are the main breadwinners - she was all for it. 

The 25-year-old, from Manchester, believes that women should be feminine and obedient for their husbands, take on all the household chores like cooking, cleaning and tidying up, and freely admits her man has never made the bed, emptied the dishwasher or done a load of laundry in the six years they've been together. 

(Her husband is quite a bit older, btw, and has his own business.)

Getting married at an early age appears to be back in fashion, too:

 WHEN Madison Dastrup finished high school she didn’t start filling out college application forms or applying for jobs.

Instead she donned her pinny and grabbed her rolling pin as she embraced the TradWife movement, where wives do everything and their husbands are the main breadwinners.

 Her happily ever after came to life when she got engaged at 18, and was married at 19.

By 21 Madison and her husband had moved into their first home together, welcoming their first daughter Ellie Louise that same year.

Madison now considers herself a homemaker, spending her days cooking, cleaning, sewing, mending, as well as taking care of the family finances and being a mum while her husband goes out to work.

They just escaped the EU and the traditional values are making a comeback. A coincidence???


  1. I wonder if this is going to continue within a decade or two. Right now more women on YouTube and TikTok are starting to talk about men's rights, renouncing feminism, and traditional living; it might affect later Gen Z (2010 and later, not 1998-2009) and maybe Gen alpha.

  2. Boomers were/are heavily into feminism, so it makes sense that with their generation fading away things start changing. But in the case of the UK, it has something to do with state propaganda as well. EU is heavily politically invested into promoting feminism, I just can't imagine any popular newspaper over here publishing positive articles about girls who prefer marriage to a college degree, like to clean and cook and want to obey their husbands.

    Even the fundie churches stopped teaching it some time ago. They now say it's OK for the wife to work for a mortgage, as having a semi-detached is godly while living in a small apartment is a sure sign you must be a sinner.
