    Default Australian Wife Swap: what kind of family would you be swapped to?

    Apparently Australian Wife Swap is being produced (yes, I will be applying haha) so if you were "swapped" what kind of family would you be swapped to?

    Usually the wives seem to be sent to households that are completely opposite to their normal everyday lives...

    For me, I would be sent to a hippy, vegan, attachment parenting household that doesn't place a high emphasis on home cleanliness I think that would be....interesting?

    DH and I were talking about this the other night, I would be sent to a home with a religious and controlling husband, free ranging kids with no boundaries, detached parenting, racism encouraged and no care for keeping a tidy house.

    He would grab the kids and run away from the woman that replaces me!

    I'd say I would be sent to a staunch religious household that was quite proper and strict where the husband is the head of the hierarchy.
    No drinking, no swearing, no blasphemy.
    BOR-ING.

    Probably a REALLY alternative household, where the kids have no boundaries. And the whole family (say 5-6 kids) and the dog and cat, all sleep in the same bed. They dont cook their food and eat everything raw including meat (yes, that was from one of the episodes hahaha). They would homeschool (I am a teacher). They would also probably walk around naked and be over the top religious.

    Probably your house Lemonhead

    Most likely a heavily meat eating house where they probably hunt as well. And go to church. And where the man rules the house.

    I'm glad you asked this important question. I have pondered it in the past.

    I'd be swapped with some very chilled out slob who eats heaps of convenience/processed food and doesn't do housework and makes her husband do everything.

    OR someone who has very strict routines and structure and gets out of bed at 5am to do yoga.

    I think I am not extreme enough for wife swap.

    Lemonhead you SO should apply!!
