IF you didn't have a job and somehow your husband didn't either, would you be willing to go out and get a job and let him stay at home with the kids? Would he be willing to stay home? Don't say "I couldn't make as much as he could" - we are pretending you could.

I totally trust my DH with our kids. He is a great father. He has his dumbass moments but all in all he is terrific. Plus he cleans the house so I would come home to a clean house :)

If my husband lost his job and wasn't able to find another one or wasn't able to find one that provided enough financial means for me to stay home with our kids, then I would get a job in a heartbeat.  

He would be willing to stay at home if that's what was best for our family...he may not like it but he would do it!!

 Yep. With the education I'm finishing, I'm going to be making more money than hubby easily.

Yes I would go and get a job. Not sure he would want to be a stay at home dad though.

YES!! Yes I would, and I would be happy to do it!   Unfortunately I will never be able to make the kind of money he does so that will never happen.
