He seems to be under the impression that life will be easy cause they will all be in the teen years or close to it.

<I think it's weird and my dad was a SAHD in my older years (junior high +) . I just couldn't be married to a man that wanted to SAH. He's got to be the providor. >


how very open minded of you .

Mel,


This is identical to our situation.. I'm so not good at doing stuff at home, except cooking.

It's natural for men to work and be the providors. Why do women always want to take on the man role and constantly prove how EQUAL they are...which they aren't, and never will be and men will never look at them in that aspect. So get over it and deal with it.

Not quite so, my dear. I know four couples with SAHDs or close to it, and in two cases, the families are quite wealthy. Family #1, the wife is a physician and the Dad works part time from home -- he is an attorney with one client, works about ten hours a month. Family #2, there is some inherited wealth and the mother is a professor of geology and the Dad is a SAHD. The other families, the woman is a pharmacist and the Dad was a SAH until the younger child went to kindergarten this year. He's just back to work after an eight year hiatus. Family #4, the Dad was fifty when the kid was born and he retired last year and is now the SAH to the twelve year old while Mom works. They used to be dual career.

Well I hope all works out for you in your nice 1800's view point of the world.
