Would you be a SAHM, if....

You married a man who you didn't have any children with? I'm just not sure I'm comfortable with this idea.

Editing for clarity - obviously there would be children in the home. In my case I have children and he does not.

If that is what we decided is best for our family then sure.

How would I be a Stay At Home MOTHER if I had no children?

Like you're a step mom staying home? I don't see the problem with that if everyone agrees. BM's opinion wouldn't really matter IMO, if the kids are in dad's custody she doesn't really get a say.

If I still had children...just not with him.


Yes.
Why not?

You could have children from a previous marriage.

Quoting TableforSeven:

I have no kids with my fiancé. I was a stay at home mom for a while. He accepted us both as family. That is what worked for our family at the time.

Why are you uncomfortable with it?

The fact it causes discomfort makes me question some things.

Do you trust he loves you and your children?  Or are you afraid he's going to bail and leave you all stranded?
Do you feel guilty because then he's supporting children that aren't "his?"  Does he feel like the children are not his family, or is that just you?  What about child support?
