    Elaborate, you mean to say washing laundry, cooking and claening up?

    This sounds like a nightmare!

    I do all those things and I’m not a house-husband.

    I suggest you hire your wife, and give her a good annual salary;)

    more_2: No, this guy. http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/mo-wanna-bes#post-363248 I think that just went over everyone’s heads, because I cannot believe nobody had any comment…

    yitayningwut: What does dachtzich mean?

    OneOfMany – It means methinks. It’s something to which an apt response might be, “takeh?” or, “yitayningwut?”

    It’s assur for me to clean, cook or do laundry?

    Oh well… just another sign of the disgusting, horrible excuse for a human being that I have become.

    Wolf, wolf …. Of course none of those things are assur for a husband to do. They can even be chessed. But the situation described is one of reversing roles. These roles have proved themselves in turning out good yidden and are sometimes required by halacha.

    #871306

    If it talks about a -husband in hard situations, for instance, then the wife should be helping him out and support him until he’s getting out from his situation, and then would be able to start going out, do what he have to do.

    That’s the right thing to do in the perspective of the T’orah

    Is there anything wrong of the husband is a stay-at-home-dad / homemaker while the wife is the working breadwinner?

    Your husband decided he prefers being a stay-at-home-dad to working outside?

    avhaben – I was offered a comparable salary working only 10 months a year. When we thought I wasn’t gonna be having kids anymore, until the time our youngest goes to school, we switched places. He did say it is harder to stay home, but much more enjoyable (and he doesn’t have to wear a tie).

    If all of a couple’s belongings belong to the husband in halacha because he is the breadwinner, does that mean that if the wife is the breadwinner it all belongs to her?

    writersoul: No. (The reason of the halacha is not because he is the breadwinner.) Her paycheck still belongs to him.

    Technically true. But she’s also free to say “I’ll pay for my own upkeep and keep my earnings.” If she’s the sole earner in the family, it then makes perfect sense (from a strictly financial standpoint) to do so.

    . . . and he doesn’t have to wear a tie.

    If he doesn’t want to wear a tie, make aliyah. I haven’t worn a tie in over 5 years.

    I don’t know, I remember reading in a halacha article that it belongs to the man because he is the traditional breadwinner.If there is a source to the contrary, by all means please post it. I’m curious.

    writer – The reason it is all his is because the husband is legally responsible to support his wife. See Rambam.

    Wolf – are you sure that is her choice to make?

    Maybe only the husband can be waived of his obligation to support her if she can support herself. (Gittin Daf Yud) But that she can demand that independence? Where’s your source?

    #871320

    But if she’s supporting HIM, why does he have monetary control?

    #871321

    Because the legal obligation to support her rests with him, regardless of whatever alternative arrangements or reality exists.

    So then he should.
