We Reached A Compromise Edit*My DH told me I'll have to get a job and I laughed at him

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My husband finally found out what he wants to do in life. He's going to go back to school to become a teacher...which is really shitty pay. We have 1 kid and 1 on the way. I'm a SAHM because I'm not putting my kids in daycare. I have a cosmetology degree. DH said I'll have to work when he starts teaching because he'll barely make ends meet with that salary...yeah, not happening. The way I see it is he should get a career that can support his family like he always said he would. I'm not going to be the breadwinner of the house nor should he break his word when he said he'd do anything that could support his family.

And before anyone says I'm an ungrateful bitch and that he'll divorce me...too bad I wouldn''t get much CS with his shittyass teaching pay.

Edit:
Here's the teaching pay in OK, our state

Edit #2:
Me and DH reached more of a "compromise." He's looking into the military. He's good in communicating and there's plenty of jobs for that. He's already applied for a college, but with flunking out of TWO COLLEGES ALREADY (a state university and community college, I might add) he has little chance of getting in. He basically has 2 options...trade school or the military. He's looking into both.

He needs to man up. Only a complete pussy would refuse to support his family.

And should he lose his current job, then what?

Quoting Anonymous:

Because we BOTH agreed on me staying at home for our kids at the start. He's the one going back on his part, not me.




Quoting MommyBoha:

Why should your DH be the only one working?





Quoting Anonymous:

Why should I have to work at night so he can be selfish and knowingly go into a field that can't support his family?








Quoting Blessedlife79:

Can you maybe work opposite shifts so kids don't have to go to daycare? Or cut back your lifestyle?

 My Dh is on disability...for the rest of his life. He also works parttime, but cannot work more than 10 days a month at 10.00 per hour. He would love to work more.

I work full time.....He still makes more than me, but since we are married OUR money is OURS...not his n mine..OURS.   Marriage is a partnership. If times call for working...ya work.  Now get off your lazy selfish ass, find a babysitter and get a job.

That statement is bs.  Just because a woman decides to be a SAHM doesn't mean her education was wasted.

Wow how about be a women and do what you have to do for your family. I could never imagine myself not supporting my husband. Then again I like to know that I can support my family no matter what. I don't need a man and I'm proud of that. I wouldn't want to live off anyone husband or not.

 And $11an hr is enough to support you guys? He will for sure be making more than that as a teacher, no??

Why does he want to become a teacher? I've seen many older people decide to be a teacher and then they couldn't hack it. It's a tough profession and not for everyone.
