When a married man turned from dual household income into single household income; his wife calls herself either housewife or homemaker. But, when a married woman turned from dual household income into single household income; her husband doesn't calls himself either househusband or homemaker. He called himself early retiree or F.I.R.E! Modern married women; many of them are earning much higher income than their spouse. Who should be the homemaker when one of them decide to retire early?

I am 62 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and finally retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee on 1 Oct 2016.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 3nd year Uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
