Was talking to DH the other day and a comment he made (I don't remember exactly what it was) gave me the impression that he never expects me to go back to school or work...sometimes I'll be talking about what I want to do with my life once I'm no longer needed at home (when we first started talking about me staying home we agreed that I would be SAHM until the youngest is in the 3rd grade) but everytime I bring it up...he kind of shoots me down....
I don't know exactly how to explain it...like I'll say..."maybe I'll try to find a job doing x,y and z" and his response will be "Do you know how many years of school you have to go through to do that?" or I'll just be thinking out loud and say something about how it would be fun to work at _____" and he'll say "with the money you'll make doing that, you might as well stay home"
Is it starting to sound like he's against me working at all period??? I mean I know I still have several years to even worry about it but...I mean I know he's a little old fashioned but we DID agree that eventually I would be going back to work....
So..do you ever plan on going back to work? and if so....when?

I don't plan on going back to work. But I don't see working as the only way to have success, feel that I'm contributing to society and feel fulfilled. It's not an "all I will ever be" thing for me.
