She's up a post today on the differences between being a solo mum on the DPB and being a Remuera housewife:
We are not so different.Click through for the rest.
You don’t work. Neither do I.
We both wanted children to keep our man happy. We expected it to mean forever. That the word is bond.
You live in Remuera in your big mansion, I live up the hill overlooking you in Orakei. We share the same view.
You drive a Mercedes and it guzzles gas, I drive a Mazda-bator and it leaks oil.
We drive the same road you and I. The same side. The same direction. Under the same rules.
You are happily a beneficiary of your husband and his labour. I am reluctantly a beneficiary of the State, the taxpayer and theirs.
It's an interesting read, but the comments are the most startling part. I hope Tara writes again, and I hope it finally opens Farrar's eyes to the need to do something about his comments section.
