Does part-time work for mothers improve their lives?

You think it's wrong for married couples to have getaways (I'm assuming for a night or a long weekend?) without the kids?

i didn't call it wrong..what i don't like listening to is justifying it because of hardships back home, the deserving mentality.

I am not sure why it is wrong for people to think that, because their lives are busy and stressed, it is important for them to get away together a few weekends a year in order to recharge. It does seem like a personality thing in that, if before kids you went away say onee weekend a month and enjoyed it, you would miss it mre than someone who didn't like to travel and just enjoyed relaxing at home on the weekends. Frankly, egd, you seem to have a whole lot of "friends" whose talk irritates you.

I don't understand your comment about "deserving mentality."

Maybe it's better to not talk about your stress level or that you are DESERVING if you are so busy because you are a wohm.

Or maybe some people think THEY deserve breaks, too, and aren't getting them.

For several years I didn't do anything that I thought would make my kids unhappy - like leaving them with a sitter in the evening so DH and I could go to dinner.
