I'm missing days at work because our children's caregiver has been sick. I'm able to go in around my husband's schedule and make up missed time, but he doesn't want me to because he wants to spend the time together; it makes him mad that I'm even contemplating it. However, I doubt we can make it on just his paycheck, and I'm not sure when our caregiver will be able to return to work, and it's cheaper for me to stay home than to find and pay another caregiver. We don't struggle much with two paychecks, but we would with just his, very much. I don't want my marriage to suffer because of this, though.
So would you stay home to appease your husband, and consequently your marriage, and try to make ends meet? Or would you go to work anyway to be confident you can make ends meet?
