I am 27 yrs old, I have three kids , an 11 yr old girl, 6 yr old boy and a 1 yr old boy, I have always dreamed of going to college,but now I'm debating wether I should or not. My husband says I dont need it, because he provides everything we need. Being a full time mom keeps me busy, but I still hunger for more. Is college really worth going to, after you've become a mom, or do you just forget about it ?Answer Question

Yes, especially in this economy. If times get hard and your husband can no longer provide for your family, what are your options? Employers will hire someone with an education faster than someone that doesn't. It's never to late to go to school. My parents both went to school after 3 kids. I learned so much just from my parents going and was ahead in my classes.

"You are pretty much set if dh says so"
Chances of divorce are 1 out of every 2 marriages. Those aren't good odds. Besides that, hubby might get sick or injured or pass away. What then? Besides the financial reasons, women need to realize that the kids do grow up. What will you do when they leave the nest? Mothers can have a life of their own and fulfil their own goals and dreams. Being a mother doesn't mean your entire life revolves around kids and house work.

Yes it is definitely worth it, I will have my Bachelor's of Science Degree in 3 weeks and then I am going to start on my Master's! I have had my job for 6 months and I still have jobs calling me because they have seen my resume and education online!
