I am 31 and married for 6 years. I completed my 7th year work anniversary today. I have been doing same work over these years and was feeling really bad about it. This year our company is finally really growing well and there is chances I can have a career growth within 2 years. Here comes the problem, every working women faces. Should I just leave my job aside and think about extending our family ( as I plan not to work after having babies) or should I look forward for the career growth I have been waiting all these years?

It should be solely your own choice! Do what you feel is important for you!

@shaynas When I was small both my parents were working and i had to be left with neighbours or aunt's places when they went to work. I missed those bonds children have with their parents. I wish to have the bond with my child that I missed.

Be careful, that is the best advice I can give to you. As we get older, it becomes harder to find employment.

I know. None wants to employee a mother or lady about 30.

@ragikutty Yes I 100% agree with you!. I had to care for my mother and father and my handicap brother , I made huge plans with my life. How after my duties with them is done I will get a job. I was so wrong. At 41, we are rejected. I had to beg , cry and humiliate myself to get an interview this Monday. Is that bad.

If your husband earns that much in which he cares for you and child then it's better to leave because Childrens of working women faces a lot of diffculties. They did not get better care.

I know that because both my parents were working when I was small. That's why I decided I will quit job when we have baby. But with hubby's salary alone, managing everything wouldnt be that easy either.

both are equally important. but as its been 6 years i think family should be given first choice. i hope there are many choices even if you take a break. as you completed 7 years in your work i think a little break dont harm. as you are 31 i think you should think of family first.

Maybe you should consider having a baby. The older you get the harder it is to have a baby.
