Think about it.
A nanny can take your kid to school, go to the grocery store, get your laundry, keep your calendar, cook, clean and be at home when a repair guy comes.
Aren’t those many of the benefits of a wife? Seriously, one of the reasons to get married is to make your life simpler and more enjoyable, right? A nanny can accomplish both – without some of the headaches of a wife.
With a nanny, you don’t have to argue over money, kids, decorating the house, landscaping the yard or planning the vacation. And you don’t have a mother-in-law!
Sure, a nanny, presumably, wouldn’t offer physical intimacy and sex. That’s a drawback. But percentage-wise, how much time in a marriage is really spent having sex? It’s miniscule.
Most of the time a wife is like a roommate. You hang out together. You discuss your day.
With a nanny, you can do the same. Plus a relationship with a nanny, unlike a wife, is clearly defined. There’s no need to argue. In a marriage, resentment constantly arises over differing expectations.
Nannies aren’t cheap, I’m sure. I’ve never priced one. But wives – they’re expensive. Both my wives were relentless shoppers. They’d bring home candles, dishes, napkins, placemats, all kinds of knickknacks we didn’t need. And clothes! Don’t get me started.
You may say I’m disillusioned about marriage. You may say I’m being sexist and denigrating the role of a wife.
No, I’m being realistic. There are upsides to being married, but there are downsides. I’d say the two are about equal – even in a good marriage.
But with a nanny, I see many positives and few negatives.
Think long and hard about why you want a wife. What are you really looking for from her? I’ll bet a nanny could fill most of those needs at a cheaper price and with fewer headaches.
