Your choice of a good wife: Someone who can can cook, can clean OR career woman?

If you ask your Haitian father for advice on how to get a good woman, a good candidate for a wife, he will probably counsel you to get a woman who can cook and clean but is that all you need these days?

I am not even going to point the fingers at young Haitian-American women born, raised, and bred in the United States; they are not accustomed to the typical "wifey" things from good old Haiti.

Before you say yes to a typical Haitian man, let me just say that my mom still cleans my father's undergarments by hand after living 30 years in the United States. That makes her an "A+" good wife.

I know that over the years the requirements for what constitutes a good wife for Haitian man has changed but it seems to me that some Haitians are not really looking for a wife, they are looking for a maid.

No offense to my Haitian brothers out there but it is the truth.

What do you think about that?
