||Highly educated women have crossed the mainstream by choosing housewife as a preferred career over a professional career. This step was taken as a solution to the problems of the household, a solution to the weakness of the childcare center and a preparation of children’s ability to meet the demands of a challenging world. This difficult decision was made as a struggle and investment of time to develop human capital as a national development asset. This conceptual paper uses library review techniques to understand and identify the challenges faced by highly educated housewives in developing well-being in life. Suggestions for developing the well-being of housewives are also discussed.
