    Kenya Court declares being a housewife a full-time payable job

    Teresia Matheka, a Kenyan High Court judge, is said to have ruled being a housewife a full-time profession that should be compensated.

    A judge presiding over a divorce property dispute stated that courts should not rule that housewives do not contribute anything to the family’s financial prosperity.

    The plaintiff is a divorced woman who wanted their family home sold and the proceeds split equally between her and her ex-husband.

    Housewives should not claim they don’t work because they provide services in the home that would otherwise be outsourced and compensated for, according to the Judge. She went on to say that relying just on visible income and the idea that one must give money to the marriage in order to find value is unjust.

     

    Matheka said;

    “It is easy for the souse working away from home and sending money to lay claim to the whole property purchased and developed with that money by the spouse staying at home and taking care of the children and the family. That spouse will be heard to say that the other one was not employed so they contributed nothing.

    “Raising children is a full-time job that families pay a person to do. Cooking and cleaning as well. Hence, for a woman in employment who has to balance childbearing and rearing this contribution must be considered.”

    When ruling over divorce cases, the judge also advised her colleagues to consider the 9 months of pregnancy. She believes that carrying a pregnancy is the same as working, noting that several couples have recently resorted to hiring surrogate moms to bear their children.

    Matheka ordered that the property should be sold and the proceeds shared equally, or that one of the spouses should buy out the other by paying half the value of the property that the other party is entitled to.
