Independent how? As in getting a job? I am a SAHM but am very independent and make extra money on the side making and selling TuTu's and flower headbands and we have 2 cars so I don't have to depend on him to get around. The money I make is my shopping money or just extra. But we are a partnership and work together, he contributes to the family by working and I contribute by taking care of the kids, house, paying bills, kids appointments and so on.

No, he would never tell me that, and besides my hubby and I are happy with the way things are, as long as the house is clean and he is not hungry he is as happy as a clam, he don't tell me that either I just know, my man is pretty laid back about everything he can come home to a pig sty and not say a word about it, I'm not saying my home is a pig sty.

He has said this a few times, and then I remind him that he is not as independent as he likes to think he is. After all, I am the one who washes, dries, folds and puts away his clothes. I also cook and clean up after him. I pay the bills, physically. Then he realizes that is not a matter of independence or dependence, but more as we are a team.
