SAHM with a Masters Degree and a Hefty unpaid Student Loan

Posted by   + Show Post

What a waste of money considering many SAHM plan to SAH until their kids graduate and by then they are old and outdated in their education burdening their spouse/SO with the hefty stupid loan with a degree you dont even use.

Just my opinion

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

If you have no intentions of working why are you getting a degree?

Quoting southernbelletx:

I am currently getting my masters and staying home. No student loan debt here. We budget carefully. I had a scholarship for undergraduate work

Well, since I minored in developmental psychology I feel like my degree has really helped me with raising my kids, so you could say that I am working in my field, without pay.  My degree is in English and my 10 year old reads at an 11th grade level, possibly my degree has something to do with that.


Quoting thetrollcat:

I think its fine if you plan to at least work part time once the kids are in school, but it really is a burden to leave your spouse paying it off. They are a bit of a burden.

Quoting funny_girl3:

I have a bachelor's degree and lots of loans and I am a SAHM. It sucks when I have to make the payment every month but stuff happens.  My life did not happen in the exact order that I would have planned, but I'm happy to be able to stay home and care for my kids.  Also I don't plan to stay home until they are grown,

I don't see any reason to stay home with kids until they leave home anyway. Stay home for a couple of years then at least find a part time job. Once they are in pre-K or kindergarten get a full time job. JMO. Unless they are special needs or something that requires full time care,of course.

You didnt say you did either. You called me out on it. Therefore, I assume you have a problem with it. If you dont have a problem with it, why are you calling me out? Bored?????

I agree. When I got married, I had just paid off my BA loans. Then I went back to school for massage, and paid those off recently.

But I worked even after having kids. It was parttime, and still is. I got my second career to facilitate working while having kids
