Wusband is a totally new word for me. The meaning I well know, but have used descriptions such as house husband, homme au foyer or simply lazy soul in the past. This new word however, is much better as it describes me perfectly, and in only one word and two syllables.
So what makes me a wusband? Well firstly, I have a very intelligent, educated, hard working and at times stressed wife who works an uncountable number of hours each week. Secondly, I am good at ironing, cooking, shopping and knowing which button to push on the washing machine. I am also a bit of a dreamer with projects that are a sometimes rather abstract and prone to long term procrastination, so setting machines running and then going off to have a good think really suits me.
I do have my responsibilities, and take these very seriously. When I remember to do them that is. But my wife seems happy with my application and near completion of my tasks. Our arrangement allows us time to be together on the weekends without any domestic chores, and although it may be strange for some, we are very happy with our socially inverted roles.
With the changes in our society over the last twenty or thirty years, it would be interesting to know how many true wusbands there are out there. I am sure there are more than we think.
