I am a SAHM and my husband brings in the full amount of our living with his paycheck. I have heard many different viewpoints on who has the harder job. His is much more physical, whereas I am taking care of our children. Here's how I see it. During the day, sure, my job may be more emotionally difficult. His is more physically difficult and he doesn't get the emotional satisfaction out of it. I tend to be the one who spends time wondering when baby's going to have that next "hospital? no hospital?" moment. Hubby worries about making sure that the family won't ever end up on the street and always has food to eat. It's my belief that trying to decide who has the more difficult job is pointless, and dangerous as well. We each have different responsibilities and ways of thinking, so we just accept that we both have difficult jobs and that the best way to handle it is to help each other as much as possible. Thoughts? Sorry so long.
