A woman who quit her corporate career has shared her “rules” for becoming a stay-at-home bride, including staying in top shape, learning to cook and never dating someone for their potential. Emily de Rean, 37, didn’t always aspire to be a stay-at-home bride, but she decided to leave her corporate job as a financial analyst after her father passed away from cancer and she realized life was too short for her. be unhappy ‘.
After finding love with her fiancé, Michael, 40, a business owner, he supported her decision to quit working to pursue her other passions, including writing a book, cooking and social media. She now hopes to become an author and can spend her time writing a book and socializing with friends, rather than being structured or ‘constrained’ by a job.
Emily has shared her advice for young women if they aspire to become ‘stay-at-home brides’ and ‘create the life of their dreams’, including dating someone a few years older and someone open-minded. Emily, from Dallas, Texas, USA, said: “I used to work as a financial analyst and started realizing that I didn’t want to be stuck in a corporate job my whole life.
“My dad passed away and it made me wonder if this was really what I wanted to do during my short time on earth. I met Michael and he encouraged me to stop working and become a stay-at-home girlfriend so I could have time to do something more productive.
“Now I spend my hours doing what I want and I have time to take care of my body, cook good meals and spend quality time with friends. I want to help other young women realize their wants and needs and date accordingly.
“You don’t have to be just a stay-at-home mom, you can aspire to be a childless young woman without working. All you need to do is find a partner who can help you achieve that lifestyle and has the same vision.” than you.”
At age 20, Emily went to college to study finance and worked her way up as a financial analyst, but after six years in the industry, she grew tired of lack of free time and commuting. She wasn’t enjoying it anymore,” she said.
“My dad was dying of cancer and he told me if you’re not happy you should do something else.”
Following her father’s advice, Emily quit her job and began working as a nanny. That was lovely,” she said.
“But when I met my fiancé, Michael, he told me I didn’t have to work if I didn’t want to. He told me that I could go with him on business trips and that I could do whatever I wanted with the rest of my time.”
Emily spends her time cooking, writing and posting on social media to give advice to other young women who want to find the ‘man of their dreams’ to meet their needs. I love to cook and men love home cooked food, that’s a plus,” she said.
“I think it’s a great tool to have.”
Emily is an advocate of not dating for its potential, so women don’t waste their time with men ‘going nowhere’ and relationships with ‘no quality of life’. “There’s nothing wrong with a man who wants to be a teacher, but if your goal is to be a stay-at-home girlfriend, he can never provide that,” Emily said.
“You have to be picky and only date men who meet your requirements. They must be financially viable for your needs.
“You don’t know how a man is going to end up, even if he has potential. He must date the finished product.”
Emily also explains some of her dating red flags if you want a stay-at-home lifestyle. If on a first date she doesn’t offer to pick you up or get you a car, that’s not a good sign,” she said.
“He should buy you dinner, not coffee, and if he asks to split the bill, that’s a red flag.” Emily is also wary of a man raised by a woman who had to work many jobs.
“That woman is a champion, but for the man she will make his subconscious have those expectations,” he said. “If a man has been raised by a stay-at-home mother, then he has already been conditioned to want that.
“I think the most important thing is to make sure that your vision aligns with his. “Being a stay-at-home bride isn’t for everyone, but if it’s what you want and need, you shouldn’t be ashamed of it.”
