I think that both are fine, but it just depends on what you really want. I don't think there's anything wrong with being a homemaker or with being a career woman, but everyone is different and some prefer one over the other. I would personally love to be a housewife and just take care of the house and my husband all day, but that is just a personal preference. If you really love your career and it makes you happy, then I don't think you should have to give it up if you don't want to. I think that if you already have a career that you like, then I definitely would not give it up right away, but if you do decide to be a homemaker, just make sure that it's truly what you want first so that you don't end up giving up your career and regretting it later! Anyway, good luck with your decision! :)

I have been both and both are very fullfilling. You have to decide what is right for you. I would say right now work on your career and then in time find someone you might want to settle down with and go from there. There is really no rush just take your time and set your own goals. You are the one that has to live with your choices so you need to make them for what is right for you. Also there is no reason why you can not have both! Make sure you sit down and you decide what you want in life and then set your goals and everything else will fall into place. Best of luck to you!!
