Why have kids when you work at a job ?

I understand life happens but shouldn't you strive for a career ? I don't understand how people have kids while they work at menial jobs, raise their kids in poverty with a husband ( that's if they're lucky) and never go back to school to get a degree . I think that is setting a bad example for the kids. You are pretty much teaching them to settle for mediocrity. Some people have no self respect IMO. I am foreign born and came to this country, I put my head in the books and married an ambitious ,hard working man with a career- it's a shame that some women who were born here don't have enough sense to do better. It seems like the only hard work some women do is sliding down from one wayward penis to the other.

  • Holy shit. I've never heard anyone say such a horrible thing. You should be ashamed of yourself. Happiness is more important than money to some people and I'm proud to say that I am one of those people. I may not be the smartest person, or have the most money, but I'm damn happy with my life and so are my dh an dd.

  • So tell us what YOU do for a living.... you mentioned that you hit the books, but make no mention of YOUR career, just your husband's. So basically, you married well, probably to get a green card.
