I Don't Want to Be a Housewife Upper Intermediate PREMIUM

Two friends are meeting at a coffee shop to talk about their troubles. In today's case, the reason one of them is upset is that their fiance wants them to stay at home and become a housewife after they get married. This is quite a common occurrence, more so in some Asian countries, where the man likes to look after the wife and be the single source of income.

How would you feel about becoming a kept-man or woman? Do you have money problems with your partner or your boss? Would you like the chance to not have to work? Perhaps you wouldn't like to be financially dependant on someone else?

In this Mandarin Chinese lesson, learn how to discuss relationship problems, especially some arguments you might have with your partner about your future and shared responsibilities.
