  • I would say true. There have been a few arguments me and DH have gotten into where he acted like being a SAHM was easy. My Healthy Families caseworker came over, and I was telling her about it, she just looked at him, laughed, and said "believe me, you'd want to go back to your job a day after doing what your wife does".

  • I know my hubby was more uncomfortable with me working than me staying at home. Never been disrespected, though.

  • I think it could be true, but not in my case. And I doubt anyone on here will admit it if they thought their husbands were disrespectful.

  • It depends on the husband. In my case, it's false; my husband expects me to be superwoman regardless of whether I work or not, and he actually expects more of me as a working mother because he thinks I should be doing everything I would do if I stayed home in addition to working full-time.

  • True in the sense that I personally think a working mom would be more likely able to leave an abusive husband than one without that independence.

  • False, every case is different. My husband has always respected me, from the time i was a SAHM to now(Working mom).
