新好男人:家庭主夫也流行

发布时间:2015-11-30 16:21:35

现如今,性别角色已被颠覆了。我们所处的社会并不受性别主宰,或者至少正朝着这一目标迈进吧。


Today, roles have been reversed. We are not a gender-driven society, or at least moving towards one that is not defined by gender. It’s okay if you are not interested in a corporate life anymore and are much happier when you stay at home, taking care of the household chores. There’s no shame in being a househusband. It’s actually quite awesome. Here’s why:

现如今,性别角色已被颠覆了。我们所处的社会并不受性别主宰,或者至少正朝着这一目标迈进吧。如果你厌倦了上班族生活,宁愿呆在家里料理家务,做个家庭煮夫也没啥问题。其实,宅在家里料理家务还很不赖呢!原因如下:

No Monday blues

告别忧郁星期一

No more rushing to work, struggling to finish a presentation, getting loaded with more work. No more cribbing on Sundays about the impending Monday. No more whining about how you hate your job.

再也不用急匆匆赶着上班、苦巴巴地做报告或不堪负重忙工作。再也不用翘首期盼周末继而又为新的一周发愁。再也不必发牢骚说自己有多讨厌工作。

No horrible boss

告别可怕上司

No more dealing with rude bosses, or unreasonable colleagues. No more dreading facing him or her. No more pressure to finish business reports or reach business targets. No more dealing with office politics.

再也不会遇上邪恶的老板或不讲理的同事。再也不害怕面对他/她。免除了赶写公司报告或完成业务指标的压力。远离办公室的勾心斗角。

Drinking hot afternoon over a fancy lunch

可享受美味午餐和暖暖下午茶

Once in a while you can pop over to a nice Italian or Spanish restaurant and have a nice lunch with some beer. You can treat yourself once a week. And an afternoon beer is that much more delicious than an evening one.

偶尔你还能去不错的意大利或西班牙餐馆打打牙祭喝点啤酒。每周你都可以犒劳一下自己,下午来瓶啤酒绝对比晚上更爽哦。

More relaxing

更轻松自在

As a househusband you get to be more relaxed. Your only worry possibly will be the maid not coming on time, or curbs on the water supply. You get to leave all the stress related to an office job. No more driving to work on increasingly busy roads. No more getting your BP high because of idiotic, rash drivers. You will breathe easy and be much calmer.

家庭厨男自然轻松自在啦。你唯一的纠结无非是保姆没准时打扫或水管出了问题。你不会遇到上班族那些烦心事。你也不必夹在日益拥挤的路上开车去上班,不必因为某些傻瓜司机高按喇叭。你可以轻松呼吸、镇静安宁。

Bonding with kids

跟孩子更密切

If you’ve just had a kid, you couldn’t have asked for more. You get to spend all the lovely time with your son or daughter. You get to play with them, feed them, bathe them, dress them up, read them stories. There can’t be a more rewarding job. You will be able to see them grow.

如果你碰巧有小孩,那再幸福不过了。你可以一直喜滋滋地陪着儿子或女儿。你和他们游戏,给他们做饭、洗澡、穿衣、讲故事。世上再也没有比这更美的差事啦。你可以见证孩子的成长呢。

Work from the luxury of your home

可居家办公

You can pick up odd jobs to increase your income. You can take up things like resume writing or essay writing for MBA students etc. If you’re an IT person, you can do some freelance work in your domain. There are tons of things you can do. You can blog, even. Working from home is great.

你可以做些兼职来增加收入。比如给工商管理学学生代写简历或论文。如果你是IT达人,你还可以在家做个自由职业者。可做的事情真是太多啦,你甚至还能开博客呢。居家办公真的很不错。

Happier married life

婚姻生活更幸福

If the house is spotless and your kids are fed and happy, your wife will be the happiest. If she doesn’t have to come home and do all the housework on top of it, she will fall in love with you every day. She will appreciate what you do and your married life will be much stronger and happier.

如果家里一尘不染,小孩吃穿不愁、开心快乐,你老婆肯定大为欢喜。如果她不必一回家就做家务,肯定会更爱你吧。她会很感激你所做的一切,你俩的婚姻自然也会更牢固美满。

Patience and empathy

学会耐心和感性

Being a househusband makes you respect women more. You realise how much work they do day in, day out. Taking care of the house and kids will teach you things about yourself, things you thought you never had. Patience and empathy, for example, for others.

做个家庭煮夫能让你更尊重女性。你会发现她们原来每天得干那么多活儿。料理家务、照顾小孩也让你发现自己,发现以往不曾注意到的事情。比如说对别人会感同身受、更有耐心。

You get to cook what you want

想吃啥就自己做

That’s right. Get all the recipe books and whip up some gorgeous meals. You can cook what you like and impress your wife or girlfriend. Follow shows like Master Chef Australia for added help and inspiration.

一点也没错。你可以搜罗各大菜谱,然后自己做大餐。你可以做自己爱吃的美食,让你老婆或女友大吃一惊。“澳大利亚大厨”这种节目秀也能激发灵感哟!

Improved health

身体更健康

Once you get around to doing housework and playing with your children and doing a grocery, or garbage run, you will become fitter and healthier. Much healthier than sitting on an office chair for eight hours straight.

做家务、陪孩子玩、买菜或倒垃圾能让你更健康。这远比一天八小时直挺挺地坐在办公室椅子上强多啦。
