‘People Hate Me Because I’m A ‘Trad Wife’ Who Stays At Home To Care Her Husband’

  Published on 

Madison Dastrup is a modern woman with a liking for the unconventional. The self-described trad wife is part of an increasingly visible group of women embracing the title of homemaker. While many see it as a homage to the 1950s, the premise is quite simple: keeping the house and everything in it in order.

Instead of filling college applications, Madison Dastrup opted to be a homemaker.

Madison got engaged at 18 and was married at 19. At age 21, she and her husband moved into their first home together. In the same year, the couple welcomed their first daughter Ellie Louise. Instead of filling college applications or perhaps apply for jobs, Madison opted for her husband to be the main breadwinner.

Madison prefers her husband as the main breadwinner.

Now, Madison considers herself a homemaker, spending her days cooking, mending, sewing, cleaning, being a mom, and taking care of the family fiancés. In one of Madison’s clips on Instagram and TikTok, she claimed she had always known she would be a homemaker. But then, she’s often faced with criticism from feminists who claim she’s going against women’s equality.

“Cooking for (my husband) is my way of showing how much I appreciate all he does for our family, and by cooking his favorite food, it shows him I’m thinking of him. He will be able to come home and relax with a nice hot homemade meal. Being able to stay home and do little things to serve those around me brings me so much joy.” Madison had said.

The homemaker regularly shares snaps of her tidy home, and in a video on her YouTube channel, Madison said: “It took my husband telling me that I need to step up, so don’t let it get to that point for you. But after he and I talked, I realized that I needed to step up my game, and ever since then, I haven’t looked back, and I’ve strived to be the wife and mom I’ve always wanted to be.”

Madison is more than delighted to have taken a step back from the feminist movement.

Madison is more than delighted to have taken a step back from the feminist movement. She uses the hashtag #Antifeminist in most of her posts, claiming modern-day feminism is a joke and hypocritical. Madison believes that feminism today, however, goes against what feminists back in the day stood for. “Not all of us want to be CEOs or doctors, and that doesn’t mean we’re wasting our potential.” She stated.
