Are most SAHM's wealthy?

I ask because a co-worker and I were talking about sahm's and he said 'the only people I know who stay home with their kids have husbands who make a lot of $$$.' That's really not true for the sahm's I know. Most of them are actually below middle income because they choose to stay home rather than make $$.

  • Some Stay at home because they can afford to and some because they can't afford to pay daycare. So it depends I suppose.

  • There is only a small percentage of people who fall into the "wealthy" catagory, so even if ALL wealthy moms stayed home I think there would still be more SAHMs who were not wealthy.

  • We are not wealthy - we choose to live below our means. We are not on any sort of PA. We have dish, internet, cell phones and don't dress in rags, but we are very frugal.
