What husband would you rather have?

Option 1: A man who puts in lots of hrs at work. Hardly any weekends and when he's home he's still working. That supplies a upper middle class living. Bigger new house, blinged out vehicles, a couple big trips a year, boats, 4 wheelers, nice clothes, salon extras, spending cash. But, other than trips, you don't see him often. With the kids most of the time staying busy.

Option2: A man who works a 40hr week job. Supplies you with an average home, second hand shopping and outlet grocery stores, limited travel due to expense. But, he is home by 4 every day, and has all weekends off. etc.

Which one would you pick and why? Just curious

  • The husband who is home. Things don't mean much to me. I married my best friend, so I want to spend time with him.

  • Number 1... He will be able to afford to retire early and we'll have time together then, but in the mean time my kids will get the best options for everything in life.

  • why does it always have to be one or the other?! haha. I think that if you want to be loved and cared about pick number 2, but if you like the lifestyle where you are by yourself all the time but get everything you want.. then number 1....

    Because I didn't wait until age 32 to get married and age 33 to start having children, to do it all solo!!! I could have done Option #1 on my OWN!! :o) Besides...no one on their death bed ever wished they spent more time at the office!!

  • I will go with option 2 and that is what I have! Granted nice things are a plus but you know what, family is more important and spending time together
