MYTH OF THE NON-WORKING WOMAN

MYTH OF THE NON-WORKING WOMAN

It’s not too surprising that software engineers are the most sought-after grooms on a popular Indian matrimonial site. But women who are software engineers don’t enjoy the same appeal. They come in second to “non-working” women, according to a study by the site, Jeevansathi. com.

“Grooms these days are looking towards a more settled and peaceful family-oriented life, which is why their preferences lie towards non-working women,” Rohit Manghnani, business head at Jeevansathi.com, told The Hindu.

But is there really such a thing as a non-working woman? It all depends on how you define work—and how many maids you’re able to employ. That peaceful family-oriented life could disintegrate as soon as the software engineer says to his new wife: “It must be nice, staying at home and not doing any work.”
