TO THE MOM WHO NEEDS TO GET A JOB BUT DOESN'T WANT TOO....
I replied to your post. Basically this is what I said..
As an able bodied individual, as a WIFE, and a MOTHER there is no way I could just sit around and watch my husband break his back to provide for his family. As long as I am physically able to help provide for my household, I will do so.
You said that you've done the math and your family can SURVIVE off of $10 an hour. The whole point of life (IN MY OPINION ONLY) is not to just survive, but THRIVE, to flourish. The jobs available are not what you may want, but it's what your family NEEDS right now. Not everyone is happy with their job, or career choice. But as ADULTS we make those sacrifices. We get up each morning when we don't want too, we put up with our bosses nonsense, because sometimes we have to in order to put food on our tables, and clothes on our backs. So put your personal feelings aside. Put your family first and do the right thing. You and your husband, that thing that you have called a MARRIAGE, it's almost like teamwork. You guys have to work together to reach a common goal. Your husband, your teammate, is asking for you help. Give it to him.
