I'd like to get your opinion on something (I hope this is the right forum). I am at a crossroads in my career path. I graduated with a Psychology degree back in 2003, but since then I had been working in a different field. Recently, I've been trying to decide whether or not I should go back to school for my master's degree in the field I originally studied. Since I will basically be starting over, it's going to be at least 3-4 years until I am done with school. The problem is that in 3-4 years, my husband and I want to start having children, pretty much around the time I anticipate being done with school. I know that I want to stay home with my children when they are young, which would keep me out of work for a while. Would it be even worth it to get my master's degree and going through all that work already knowing that my career will be 2nd to my family?
Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
