Author - Michael
Is a Wife Worth? is a book that will give homemakers and
their spouses a surprising new perspective on what it
means- in dollars and cents- to be “just a housewife.”
It is required reading for every woman who is a wife,
has been a wife, or has ever thought of becoming a wife.
According to Michael H. Minton, the modern American housewife
should earn a substantial salary each year in her capacity
as a cook, teacher, nurse, waitress, dishwasher, cleaning
woman, secretary, and hostess.
In a chart he developed, Minton shows that the replacement
costs of hiring people at the lowest going rate to perform
the tasks that housewives do on a regular basis add up
to an impressive sum. As a result of Minton’s efforts,
the courts in more than thirty-one states have recognized
the economic contribution of wives to their marriages.
Although the information in this book has been brought
forward as a result of Michael H. Minton’s work
as a family law attorney What Is a Wife Worth? is aimed
at strengthening marriage by clarifying the importance
of the homemaker’s role
