What events or circumstances might cause you to go from SAH to WAH or WOH, or any other change in work status?


Have a great weekend, everyone!

I am a full time student (I work part time as well, currently working on my masters). If I won millions of dollars I would quit my job, but not school.

Net. Yeah there's a shortage in my field, a bad one. And there's all kinds of options. If I worked part time and took the benefits package, I would net about $2300-2500 a month. But I don't need the benefits at this time. So I'm lucky in that area.

I bring home $3500 a month and have health insurance for my kids. Are you saying part timers are neglecting their families just by being part timers. If so, ridiculous.

It was modern and trendy when it was prevalent in the 1950s. Historically, not so much. And I'm not so sure that any trend that produced the results of the 60's is worth emulating.

So what, if it's 1950 or whatever you're trying to imply?

I am a WOHM. I have always been one and I only took a leave of absence when my son was first experiencing heart problems and when he had surgery. He's healthy now and I have since gone back to work. Only other times I didn't work was when I was on maternity leave.


I just love my job. Its something that I dreamed about since I was 5 and its something I worked towards since high school really. I love my children unconditionally, but I just couldnt stop working.

I might decide to work if we lived near mother-in-law, so she could babysit. I would also work if my husband lost his job.

This is exactly what happened to a friend of mine. She is a lawyer who has owned a diversity consulting company for years. Her DH is also a lawyer and they've had a really great life, three polite, smart
