Tai tai (太太) is a Chinese colloquial term for a wealthy married woman who does not work. (Source: Wikipedia.)
I don’t know if it is surprising to you but I have seen so many such cases over the years. There are childless couples who decide to stay childless because they want to concentrate on their careers and have double income. DINK. Double income no kids.
The ones I am blogging about now are those who decide to stay childless too but with only one person bringing home the bacon. What does the other person do? Anything but being gainfully employed.
I have a good friend, several years younger than me, who is a doctor. His other half decided to stop working many years ago and when I remarked that it wasn’t a wise decision, instead of agreeing, he said, “I make enough money to support both of us.”..
