Woman lives as a 1950s housewife because she believes her place is at home

Woman lives as a 1950s housewife because she believes her place is at home

Alexia Delarosa resonated with the old school system where a woman 'cooked and cleaned for their husbands'.

A woman has adopted a 1950s housewife mentality because she believes her place is at home.

Alexia Delarosa, 29, from San Diego, has chosen to become a stay-at-home mother because she felt neglected as a child when her mother worked and had friends.

She said she decided to become a 'tradwife' - a term used for modern women who shirk today's freedoms for females - after she watched old movies.

"I remember watching films where the women would stay home to cook and clean for their husbands, and I thought it was a romantic and sweet life. It really resonated with me," she said.

Her social media is full of meek videos of her baking for her children and husband.

"I have always wanted a more traditional model for my family. I loved the idea of a 50's style family life, where the wife stays home to look after her husband and kids, and the husband goes out to work full time."

She went on to point the finger at her own mother for having a life outside of the home, adding: "My mom worked and she also enjoyed time outside of our family home with friends."

So, instead of having her own friends, interests, or employment, she chooses to fully support her husband by remaining at home.

Delarosa documents her life on social media, with a feed that shows her fully dolled up while baking for her family and caring for them.

The 29-year-old revealed she makes their meals from scratch and will home school their two boys Archer and Arlo in order to fully control the environment that they grow up in.

"People like to comment to tell me that being a full-time mom and wife isn't a real job," she said.

"Some people even tell me that I am turning the clock back 50 years.

"However, I don't let it bother me because I know that the job I am doing is invaluable and it would be so expensive if we were to pay someone else to fulfill this role while I went out to work."

She went on to reveal that her children being out of her care 'scares her'.

"For example, Archer had been at a party and playing with some kids, and by the time we were driving home, he was saying 'you're stupid' and we never say words like this at home," she said.

"It can happen so quickly it's scary, so I want to be there to guide them and make sure they're getting brought up the way we'd like them to.

"We can remain in control until they're older and can judge characters for themselves."

She added her husband, Matthew, is fully on board with her decision to stay at home so that he doesn't have to worry or think about it after a day at work.

Each to their own, we guess.
