what other post?

and no not really why should I? If a man doesn't want his wife to stay home then he should let her know that.

The SAHM how many hours a week does your DH work post. Some seem to think that husbands of sahm's are working themselves ragged just because their wives stay home.

My staying home is a source of pride for my husband. He likes that he provides for his entire family. He came from a broken home and had to work very hard to get to where he is. We made the choice together for me to stay home with our children. If he didn't want me to be home, or we couldn't afford it, then I would be working.

Well, my DH works anywhere from 60-70 hours a week. Even if I wasn't a SAHM, he'd still have the same hours. So, it really wouldn't matter. *shrugs*

Dont know which post youre talking about, but yeah i do feel sorry for some of them

In what ive heard and seen with my own eyes in how some take advantage and feel so entitled, you have to feel bad
Most of the time these men think their wives will stay home until the kids go to school and next thing they know its 13 yrs later and shes still home and not contributing to the financial part of the relationship.

Its actually sad in many cases
Thats why many men leave too

This sounds very similar to our situation.

Yeah, my dh wants me to be home and he enjoys what he does.

It is probably from the single ladies...

Redneck hippie mama to four rowdy farm kids. My husband has tagged along my awesome journey for 14 years this month and we enjoy the simple and natural life. Ask about my rockin' blog giveaway...check it out!!

Mine only works a normal 40 hour work week. It's not a physically demanding job at all either. He primarily sits at a desk.
