I am a mother of 2 and both my husband and I work and we barely make it. But I see parents who need help or they want help but yet only one parent is working. Why dont both parents go out and find a job? I am sorry for asking but I need to. I see all these post where families are getting aid or help from family members when both parents should be out providing for the family. If you are out there trying your hardest and it still isnt panning out then that is one thing. But for a mother mostly to be able to stay home and ask for help but yet not doing anything then I believe it is wrong to adegree. I stayed home with our oldest almost the first year of life not because I wanted to but for her health issues. No one helped us out we had to get loans out to help our selves. On tope of the medical cost. I am not trying to sound mean or bashing but I am just wondering why if you need the money or help why not go get a job?Answer Question
It is true that sometimes, due to a lack of education, the benefit of the partner's possible income is completely negated by the additional costs - more gas, second car, day care....
To me, it's black and white - you run the numbers, you make the choices.
I find it hard to believe that ANY woman would refuse to contribute monetarily to her family.
