  • Ofcourse I would love to have a little of both. My husband use to work as a sales manager for a large retailer before the layoffs. We lived a comfortable lifestyle but he was married to his job. He worked on salary and would often leave the home at 6am and would not return until about 7pm...It was CRAZY!! Now that my husband works an 8 hour shift, we have the time to do what ever we want, on a budget ofcourse. But i love it.

  • My husband works a 7-5 job Monday -Friday that pays him more than enough to provide for our family. So really we don't have to choose. I would work before he worked a job where he was never home. I love being home but I would not want him to miss family time so I can be home.
