My dh is 41 and i am 22. I was in college when we met but i became pregnant and he convinced me to be a SAHM because he can afford for me not to work.....which he can. He thinks its better for our son to have his mother. My mom sees this as him trying to control me. He does want to know where i am at and who i am with when i go out but dont most husbands?

So, what are you doing to prepare yourself to get into the workfforce once your son is in school?

What would you do if he gets in an accident, and you suddenly find yourself the sole supporter? What can you do?

I've watched a lot of movies like that. Usually the girl breaks up with the guy and goes back to college to finish pursuing her dream.

At face value it sound innocent enough. However, it can be much more extreme than you make it sound. If I make plans without my husband, I tell him what's going on out of respect, but he doesn't demand the information. Did you want to be a SAHM? Or did he give you no choice? These are important details.

He's only comtrolling you if you allow him to push you into something that you don't want to do.

I would need more details. So he likes to know where you are or who you are with, but does he tell you where you can go or who you can see? Do you feel like he is trying to control you? Have you finished your education?

A lot of sahms don't get back into the work force after kids start going to school.
