I think that women also have their right to keep working, even after marriage. Most of my married friends also have proof, that they can take good care of their family & work as well. Some women quit their jobs after they have kids because of high daycare prices but that is still considered a job staying home with them. And all the chores that comes with maintaining a clean house.

You are so right, and men should help us out from the housework too

I have always admired women who are married with kids, and still hold a full time job! I just don't know how they manage. As for those women who quit their jobs to look after their kids, hey, I salute them for doing that! I think it's a big sacrifice on their part, and I admire them for what they do. And whoever says it's easy being a stay-at-home mother? The household chores, and the looking after the kids and their husband, it can be much more tiring than just being a working woman with no kids! Cheers ladies!

If the couple has kids and can afford the daycare expenses I say go for it. Currently we cant afford the day care expenses. 1 paycheck would go twards daycare and we would still be stuck with 1 paycheck every week. That is why I stay home right now. Because of how high priced daycare is today. Once my husband can get his own car again (his engine blew on his) I will be able to get a job opposite his and be able to work and help with the bills, and not have to worry about daycare becdause one of us will always be home.

Staying home looking after the kids can pay off too. My kids have good grades in school because I have the time to tutor and help them in their lessons. it's really rewarding when I see their high grades and I have 3 boys.... think of the raucous they make when their at home. But I keep it a point that they finish all their schoolwork and let the have their time to play.

i think there's no problem for a married woman to continue working, especially if she earn more than her husband. however, most women will choose to stop working once the baby comes....to experience motherhood :D but that's also if they could afford to do it!

I think it is a very personal decision to be made within the marriage. I love staying home with my daughter, but sometimes I do wish for at least a part-time job so I can bring home some $$ and spend some time with adults. But daycare is too expensive, and my husband is military so I never know when he will be around. So for now, this is my job :-)

Maybe when you're daughter is big enough or in school you can have a part time job. All my kids are in school and I have lots of free time. I'm looking for part time job also to make my time more productive and the extra money will also help.

The good thing is that many women can choose whether or not to stay home or go back to work. I've done both. I've gone back to work and was miserable (at first), then I did the stay at home with the kids (and after a while I felt like I was going crazy). Now I work part time and it seems to be the solution. I get to hang out with adults during the day and I also get to be there after school when the kids need me.

Yup that is the best way I think. We get to keep some time for ourselves and get to be by our family too. We also need to interact with other people to help us grow and be productive also.

Now days, it is very difficult for some familes not have two incomes coming in. Everything is too dang expensive. My sister and her husband both work full time and they have a 4 year old. He is in day care full time and it costs about $500 a month. So they pay a lot for daycare but they still have a lot extra coming in. If my sister didn't work, they wouldn't be able to afford their houses and car payments and all of the other necessities to live. Yes they would save on the daycare cost but they wouldn't have anything extra coming in. But I think that if a family can afford to have the mother stay at home then I think that is great too. There are many perks to being a stay at home mom just as there are many perks to having your kids in daycare.
