I think you are pathetic if you are a SAHM

And refuse to find work IF your husband/boyfriend/fiancé/partner could no longer Afford to provide for the family on just his income



ETA: This includes having to get on PA, rather than getting a Job to supplement the income

Some people may prefer it to be that way. For instance in the Philippines it's the norm for the woman to be working outside the home and the husband stays at home with the kids.

Quoting Anonymous:

How bout a guy who refuses to stay at home to watch the kids while the woman brings home the bacon?

I guess I could have been more specific on that sorry. As long as someone is providing that's all that matters. Who stays at home isn't what matters. Now if said man stayed home but was worthless then yeah he should be the one working.

Quoting Perle1:


Quoting crazymom21: How does that even work? No problems here because I married a real man who unless he was unable to always provides. If something happened to him then of course I'd do what needed to be done.

My best friend is married to a very real man who stays at home with the kids.

I agree, IF you're able to. I am disabled. In my current state, there is no job that would hire me.

 Umm....yeah, someone needs to bring home a paycheck.  It would be pathetic to sit at home if there weren't any funds available by which to support whomever may be in the household.

And why is that? Because we are the sole provider at home while our husbands make the money? Do you think we sit around eating bon bons and shopping? Do you think we have nothing of value to contribute to the marriage?

You could have left it at the subject and I'd agree with you. The title with the post? Obviously.
