A househusband is a male person living with his partner and performing all the housework and duties that have traditionally been associated with a housewife. He values his family above anything else and is as amazing a person as any male working partner. Also called a homemaker.
-Isn't your significant other a househusband, Jenny?

-Oh, yes. And he's absolutely amazing! So supportive, and you should see him with the kids! And the food he cooks! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

(n.) King of the castle. Ruler of the roost... until his wife comes home from work. This is one of the lowest titles a man can have, often said to be lower than unemployed. This is the masculine form of the word housewife.
-Do you think Lucas will ever have a job?

-No, but I think he would be a good househusband anyway.

A term that shouldn't even exist due to thousands of years of sociobiological and anthropological evidence in gender role. However, this word is a testament to the awful power of political correctness, which forces gender relativeness in all words. (Since housewife is a gender specific term applying to females, there should also be a polar term describing males, thus househusband)
Examples of other terms invented by political correctness: policewoman, firewoman, servicewoman...
