On a debate team, one has to be prepared to debate *either* side of a specified subject area.

So, what points from the "other side" do think have merit. Are there any points that you haven't seen that you think would be hard to counter?

Hmmm...but you still think that you are setting yourself up for divorce if you are working and saving in case of it, right?

Do you believe a sahm should have a separate savings account in case of emergency (and yes, I think divorce would be an emergency if she is not working and has not worked in many years and doesn't think she could fully support her family on her income)?

"I" was speaking of daycare, not the difference between a wohp and a sahp.

"If your hiding cash to protect yourself, you want a divorce and need to get out ASAP!"

IME women have their own separate money to protect themselves and they have common sense that things don't always work out, people change. I don't think they do it because they need to get out.

I'm a WOH mom and don't have a separate savings account. If I was a SAH mom, I wouldn't have a separate savings account. Why would I need one?

Yes, the women have had to go back to work.
