So your spouse doesn’t want to homestead, now what? I have a confession today…my husband has zero interest in or desire to homestead. Now don’t get me wrong, he’ll help me with anything I ask him to do, even the stuff he really REALLY doesn’t want to do; but he has no passion for it. I know many of us are in that same boat and it isn’t easy to talk about. So what do you do when your spouse doesn’t want to homestead?
For us, for now, I keep doing my small-scale backyard homesteading. I will keep working on my “vintage skills” and find mentors on anything and everything I can’t do in my current space. I will wait, and yes, I will pray for a change of heart. My husband has already agreed to moving to acreage but it is hard to start that process when both of you aren’t on board for the work involved in a hobby farm. Right?
