  • Tell him this is something you want/need to do for yourself. That is will be fulfilling to you personally. I hope he sees that it is much better for him to have a happy, self fulfilled, wife.

  • Maybe his idea of you not working means out of the house?
    I say this b/c I have an extremely successful WAH business ...This means I set my own days hours times....if its family time or specifically Hubby time....It can all be put to the side...
    I can do this anywhere, there is no inventory, all's I need is my phone or laptop..
    I bring in a FT income and I only put in roughly 20 hours a week.

  • If your husband is preventing you from working, you are being abused. Please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 800-799-SAFE (7233)

  • Just do it. Tell him u understand his feelings but ur doing this for u. Find a job that doesn't interfere with family life.
