With the economy being so crappy, I'm just wondering if there are very many SAHM's anymore.

The answer you get would depend on whether the person you're asking considers school to be childcare.

The only two ways I know of working and not being paid are volunteering and unpaid internship

So they would be a SAHM and a volunteer or a SAHM and an intern.

Actually they are. You seem to be debating my fact that "If the definition of a SAHP is to be unemployed and have minor children that anyone who falls in that category is a SAHP regardless of the reason they are AH.

But facts are not judgments on their own.

Or a student. For the sake of argument I'm going to say no, they are not a SAHM. They are a SOHM.

I'll be back later. Taking the kids out to play.

1. Do you not think that people can have more than one label (if they do not conflict)?

2. How man hours out of the home is required to met the criteria of the difference between a SAHM and a SOHM?

Your decision would be based on income?

If I earned what DH earns in my old profession and we both worked the hours that require that income, we probably wouldn't have children. There wouldn't be enough time.

I'll answer your questions first and then I'll try to get through all the responses so far.
