Poll

Question: If you're a SAHM - which option explains your situation?

Options:

I'm a married SAHM, husband works, we do NOT get food stamps

I'm a married SAHM, husband works, we DO get food stamps

I'm a single/divorced SAHM, receive child support and DO NOT get food stamps

I'm a single/divorced SAHM, receive child support and DO get food stamps

I'm a single/divorced SAHM, no child support and DO NOT get food stamps

I'm a single/divorced SAHM, no child support and DO get food stamps

I'll throw in an "other" and hope you elaborate

do you get food stamps.

(Okay, so this is a spin off of my other poll asking employment/relationship status of those who get food stamps.  I was surprised that, as of right now, 102/227 votes for people who get food stamps were SAHM).

Now I'm wondering of the people here (who choose to vote, of course), who are SAHM, how many of your families receive food stamps?

(this isn't meant to be an argument or debate post.....just more of a 'unscientific stats - poll' to learn a little more about the situations of those here)

ETA -- This is so interesting to me!  My first poll which was focused on people who receive food stamps....the first votes were all SAHM who get food stamps.  In the first 15 minutes there were at least 20 votes from SAHM who receive food stamps.  

Now, with this poll - focused on SAHM, in the same amount of time, there are only 5 who are SAHM who receive food stamps.  Where are they all now?  I wonder if they just stay away from "SAHM" posts, but feel more drawn to "Foodstamp" posts?  Interesting.

No fs here. Dh has a good job and I have saving from my old job, so thank goodness, we haven't needed them.

This, but my savings comes from a family business.

Well, I know right off the bat that this poll should eventually see 102 votes for "I'm a SAHM, husband works and we DO receive foodstamps" (if everyone who voted on my previous poll finds their way here).  

It will be interesting to see what the results are after a few hours.
