A tradwife who ‘submits’ to her husband has hit back at trolls accusing her of being ‘immature’ for staying at home to ‘heal her body for pregnancy.’
Aria Lewis, who grew in the Christian state of North Carolina, had a ‘very promising, very busy career’ as a wedding photographer but decided to quit to become a homemaker after tying the knot.
The 22-year-old, who was homeschooled as a child, now regularly posts content to TikTok where she boasts more than 17,000 followers.
She now claims that the couple embracing their ‘God-given roles’ was the best decision in their marriage.
Aria previously revealed that being a ‘traditional wife’ involves submitting to your husband, having lots of children and teaching them at home.
But she has insisted that it is ‘not a trend’ and instead ‘is something women have been since the beginning of time.’
‘In the last hundred years with the feminist movement what used to be normal is now worthless and ridiculed.’
She said: ‘Sometimes, working is the best decision for your family, and sometimes staying home is the best decision’
‘You and your husband have to make that decision yourselves.
‘But for goodness sakes, I cannot tell you the number of people who think I’m immature for staying home and running my side hustles homesteading, tending to my home and healing my body for pregnancy.’
Aria, who believes she was ‘born in the wrong century,’ tied the knot with husband Andrew when she was 18 and he was 24 – which is when they shared their first kiss.
The couple now run a homestead and don’t own a TV as she attempts to ‘keep biblical femininity alive.’
Aria explains what it means to ‘submit to your husband’
- Let him take the lead
- Don’t criticize or nag him
- Value his input and yield to his desires
- Listen to his thoughts and speak well of him to others
- Pray for a submissive heart
But she said that it does not mean:
- Bowing down to your husband
- Being a lesser person
- Having no opinions
- Committing to sin
- Accepting abuse
- Being anti-women
- Working only in the home
Revealing her ‘biggest secret’ about being a homemaker, she said: ‘I don’t love cleaning. I don’t even like cleaning, actually… I’m honestly really bad at it, and it’s something I’ve always struggled with.
‘Well then if life as a homemaker is mostly cleaning and cooking, WHY am I doing it?
‘I’ve been told I should work part time and use that money to hire someone to help me clean. I even grew up with a weekly housekeeper.
‘Well… the answer is – I LOVE being a homemaker. I LOVE that *I’m* the one who gets to serve my husband (and future family) this way.
‘I love having a clean house, and I love that God is slowly working on me, growing me as I seek to discipline myself in cleaning my house.
‘I love that my role as a woman is the role of a homemaker.
‘Not every woman is called to this, but I am. I am called to nurture and care for my home in my role, and that is a beautiful thing.’
She now tries to encourage others to become homemakers too but has been flooded with hate from other social media users over the way of life.
‘As a homemaker, I’m accused more often than you think of being a freeloader or a lazy person because I depend on my husband’s income.
‘If you’re a homemaker have you faced this too? I’m sure you know it’s not true. I find that I’m busier now than I was when I worked full-time!
‘Oh and – hate comments don’t bother me in the least,’ she shared.
