-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.

Someone who knows women dont belong in the kitchen. Theyy are very loving and dont mind making sure the wife comes home to a clean house and happy kids. This is one of my favorite words. Every person should have a househusband. When the house husband and the wife are alone in the house, the husband will cook with only an apron on. ;)

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...

(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.
