My friend and I were talking and her fiance wants her to be a sahm after they are married and have children and then she told me she just has bigger dreams than to sit at home and take care of kids all day.
I just kept my mouth shut. I'm a sahm and prefer it that way. My husband and I both like that I stay home with the kids and I probably always will. I don't think it's a little dream to want to be home to raise a family. My husband makes enough money to keep us comfortable and we can save and pay our bills.
Should I readdress this or just leave it alone? Honestly, it kind of rubbed me the wrong way, she made it sound like I was living a pathetic life. At least it did to me. Maybe I'm too negative? lol What do you all think?

I take her statement to mean that she is talking about herself and how she wants to live her life. I don't think she meant for it to sound like an insult to you and you choosing to be home. I think she and her fiance are not on the same page, his 'dream' is for her to be a SAHM and her 'dream' is to do other things (not be a SAHM) and I think she is just expressing to you her feelings on his statement. I do hope that your friend will talk to her fiance and that she will do what she feels works best for her, and her family.
