Ummm Get a job.

This is not what you think.  It is not about someone on PA or anything like that.

 

I am friends with a couple.  The husband is working two jobs and the wife is not working at all.  Their kids are 11 and 14.  Her husband has asked her to get a job but she refuses.  She said her job is to be a mother....(just to be a mother...not to keep house...that should be a family thing since the family lives there). 

 

She is constantly complaining about not having the money to do the things she wants to do and that her DH needs to get a better job.  He is constantly complaining that she spends too much money and needs to get a job so that he can spend more time at home  OR..  she needs to keep house, cook dinner, and take care of that kind of stuff.

 

I am not getting involved...but everytime I hear her complain I just want to tell her to go get a damn job.  Instead I just tell her that I don't want to get involved.

I knew someone like that years ago. Lost touch and often wondered if her marriage lasted.

I don't understand why any woman would want to be home if the kids are in school, I go stir crazy on my days off. I also do my share of the household chores, even though everyone helps out, but I work full time. On my days home, I do more. That's just the way it should be.

If we were that hard up and we didnt have the money I would get a job....Her kids need her still yes,but they are not babies anymore and she could get a job opposite shift of her husband or while the kids are in school.When my twins are in school I plan on going back to work.
