" I don't get why women stay at home. I mean if the kids are in school or grown. I have guys in my shop who have no kids at home and their wives never went to work. That would piss me off. I think they should so that the workload would be more evenly distributed."
MY response was, well, maybe they still cook and clean and pay the bills and do all the gardening. Maybe they don't have time to work. Maybe working would be a vacation. AND, I got a full time job. So...now my hubby is missing me and what I did when I had more energy. :)
But I think he still doesn't value sahm or me for that matter. :(

But there should be room in any family to take a look based on the needs of the family to decide who plays what role and when. To say-only men do this or only women do this based on something other than the needs of the family is not a good thing. My husband and I have changed roles numerous times in our marriage based on a variety of factors-
I understand the $$$ piece-if it's not a financial advantage, it makes no sense.
Just seems funny that those who talk about the kids being #1 and raising the kids, and the kids being the priority are quick to discount the possibility of a DAD being the stay-at-home parent for those kids. It appears the gender specific role, is more important than 1 parent actually being at home with the kids.
