“I left my partner until he let me be a housewife – I have high expectations”
Leah Moilanen, 22, has split from partner Alan Ureel, 23, after realizing she wanted to be taken care of – and has now shared why she wanted to be a homemaker
One woman has shared how she left her boyfriend until he agreed to pay all the bills so she could be a housewife.
Leah Moilanen, 22, has split from partner Alan Ureel, 23, after realizing she wanted to be taken care of.
After a few months’ hiatus, Alan, a home builder, has “reached her standards” and the couple are now married.
Leah has always had strict requirements about her dates — like having her chair pulled out for her, wine poured for her, and her other half always footing the bill.
She says she would never pay for a meal, never pour her own wine and be careful to avoid anyone underdressed.

Leah, from Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA said: “Alan and I first met when we were young and then I realized I wanted to be taken care of.
“He’s stepped up – now he arranges and takes me on dates at least twice a week. He always pays and pulls out my chair for me.
“I love to cook and we go for coffee together. I love being a housewife and I want others to know that it’s okay to pursue that lifestyle.
“It’s like being a housewife without the kids.”
Leah said she realized she didn’t want to spend her life working after college and taking a job as a waitress at a restaurant.
“I wanted to have time for myself and someone to take care of me,” Leah said. “Alan wasn’t able to take care of me at the time so we split up.
“But a few months later we got back together and he promised to take care of me.”
Alan started a home renovation business to support Leah and give her the lifestyle she wanted.
“Now I walk the dogs and spend a lot of time cooking,” she says.
“We can travel and Alan is flexible with his work so we can go out for coffee during the day. I like it when he takes the initiative and books a restaurant for a meal or chooses what we do.”
Now happily married, Leah loves all the chivalrous deeds her husband does for her.
“He’s always making doors for me or pouring me wine or pulling out my chair,” she said. “He does it without asking. He’s a real gentleman.”
Leah is now sharing her tips and red flags for women who want to have a lifestyle like hers.
“I don’t think there should be any shame in wanting to be a homemaker or homemaker,” she said.
“It’s your life, so you choose how you want to live it. I’m married now, but I wouldn’t date anyone who doesn’t pay the bill or pour the wine.
“It’s a red flag if they don’t tip the waitress or slip. I hate it when they reschedule appointments or comment on prices at the last minute.
“I’m not ashamed to be a housewife.”
