i didnt think it was, and when applying for something there were both options, i put homemaker

but I got turned down as i was 'unemployed'

we have good household income, DP works full time - so is this right??

would it have made a difference if you were married?

guaranteed income is what a lender is looking for if you wnt to borrow in your own name normally your husbands income is used instead but also obviously his debts and outgoings

I would have thought that if they give you the option to choose "homemaker" rather than " unemployed it would be unfair to decline on just that. It shows you are doing something productive as a lifestyle choice rather than can't find/don't want work

it was just a credit card, and my DPs earnings were included as a live in partner
