  • Well, you ARE working aren't you? Do you mean it takes 2 INCOMES to raise a family?

  • I can't afford to stay home....but if I could I would and I have before.As long as you keep the kids fed and house put together I don't see anything wrong with that!

  • I think every child should have one parent home with them, though I realize this isn't always possible. Why would anyone say both parents SHOULD work? I don't see how that helps the child at all. I guess just more money for daycare.

  • 2 incomes would be nice but we make do with one. thankfully my husband earns enough for us to live comfortably.

  • We live on one income, my DH works & I stay at home with the kids... We are both very happy with this arrangement, he feels that one of us should be home with the kids and so do I. Honestly some months are harder than others, but we make it work...

  • If you need two incomes, you need two. If you can SAHM and live off one, that's great too! My husband works I SAHM, but I also work part-time. He works a lot of hours, but that's just how we do things around here. Both of us are happy and both of us have our complaints. :)
