HI friends. What do you think about both husband and wife working after marriage. Do you think if both of them work the personal life cannot be successful. I am not working after the marriage because my husband feel that if both of us work then we cant our enjoy our life. If both of us work only profit is we will get money. What do feel friends. I just need some opinion dear friends...Hope you will help me out

If both husband and wife work then their life may become mechanical and the will have enough time to share their feelings with each other. Earning money is not that important in life, holding happy relations are important. i dont say my theory is correct but i can it may be.

Thank you dear friends for all your comments and suggestions. Even I feel the same it all depends on each individual. But when both of them work then life is so mechanical. And also the timings should match. when all these things doesnt come up together then it will be a problem. Before marriage even I was thinkin that I should work and should be equally important in life. But after marriage i felt that warmth from husband when I am at home waiting for him, cooking for him, cleaning and etc..so anyways you have to enjoy all the stages of life.thats what I can say..

I think if it makes you happy to work then you should. But if you want to stay home then you should. Maybe you could find a happy medium and work part-time during the hours that he is working. I worked full time all during my marriage until 3 years ago when our 4th child was born. It is harder now financially for us because it is only his income, but we make ends meet. I say to do what makes you happy but don't jeopardize your marriage over it. If it helps, I worked full time for 16 years and it never hurt our marriage. We will be celebrating 19 years this year. My husband is happy that I am home with the children now but we are suffering from the decrease in income. Once the kids are older I will likely go back to work at least part time in order to bring in some extra income. Have a great day and happy myLotting!!

It depends on the wife, if she wanna work for good she can its allright but will always consider what work she is going on with. :

Just because you are married doesn't mean that you can't work. You can still enjoy your life while you both work. I honestly think that is a sad excuse. I haven't worked for 2.5 years and my fiance said that I will never go back to work unless I could handle a full 8 hour day and be comfortable doing it. I have a back injury hence why I don't work.
