Writer: I am 'the anti-wife'
A busy writer and editor says she is “shamefully neglectful” of her “wifely duties".
Writer Kate Thompson recently penned a piece for The Daily Mail, accompanied by the title: “Meet Britain’s worst wife.”
In the post, Thompson calls herself the “anti-wife.” Explaining that she is “shamefully neglectful” of her “wifely duties,” Thompson says she simply can’t play the role of subservient partner.

Her husband, Ben, claims he doesn’t mind their set up.
“I'm in awe of the way he looks after me, our sons and our home. He makes my life easier. And he says he enjoys it.”
