Well, you see managing a home is equally a task and so I dont think you should force her to do anything. If she is highly qualified, I am sure she will end up finding something good for herself in the near future. But do appreciate her efforts of running a home as well and then encourage her to pursue her professional dreams.
First off, please never say she's wasting her time at house. Most/any woman would take an offense at that. How about you cherish the time and efforts she puts in to make a home, and let her know you would appreciate her making personal/professional progress as well <3
It's heartening to know you want her to do something apart from household chores. Wish more men thought on similar lines. Tell her that she can use her own money to buy whatever she wants without having to depend on you. Also tell her that double income would translate into a better lifestyle for both of you, help you realise your dreams faster. All the best :)

I was working for more than seven years before getting married and moving countries. I had to quit my job in the process and have no earnings of my own. It's true that partners contribute to the marriage in ways other than money, but having been independent for so long, I'm unable to spend my husband's money as my own, even on essentials. Do I need to get over it, and if yes, how?
Although I am up for chivalry and love being pampered, I don't like it when my husband makes a face whenever we are together and I pay for something instead of him. We both are earning well. Why make a fuss about it at all?
Why do men shy away from relationship discussions?
Can't help feeling jealous
Why do men think that helping the wife is shameful or makes them henpecked?
What have I learnt about myself through my spouse!
Your favourite protagonist from a Classic book or movie and why?
