<<I'd be shocked if you told me you did all the cooking. >>


I do the vast majority of the cooking. When it's warm out, dh will grill the entree (after I've done all the prep work).

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. "


Good for you. And GOOD luck to you.


Personally I've never felt wed to social norms like this. And my DH can be a great provider, and was in the past. Now he's a great provider and a great SAHD:) Lucky us.

I know several doctors and lawyers, and seriously, it takes them awhile to accumulate wealth... especially if they got through college on student loans.

Definitely correct. However, the professionals I'm speaking of have $5 million or more in net worth.
