    As a woman, and since this conversation is about women, I would always want to work. If I marry a man capable of supporting me without the need to work, I'd still work because I want to make my own money. I don't want to be financially dependent on somebody else's money, nor would I always want to ask for permission before spending somebody else's money. It doesn't feel secure or safe to me, and especially not if there is a divorce and he doesn't want to pay me alimony. Where would that leave me?

    I personally think it's more financially wise of a woman to work and save some money for her self. It's more secure. You can't depend on another person to care for you and provide. A marriage could sour, end in divorce, your spouse could suddenly die, etc. Not having financial independence is risky.

    I'd rather invest my money and make my own financial decisions, rather than allow my husband to run my life and retirement with his money.
    ITA...and if you have kids you can put them in daycare for strangers to raise, so you can make money because you don't trust the man you married.

    Why is everyone getting all riled about differing opinions? All are valid, depending on what you agree with in the discussion.
    Michelle Obama, in my opinion, is the most down to earth first lady the white house has ever had. Why? Because she wears dresses from Target. She doesn't mind getting slimed. She knows what work is like as well as raising children.
    I don't know about mrs. romney, but I do know you cannot describe how chocolate tastes unless you have tried it. She never worked outside the home, had to juggle kids and work, choose which to pay...rent or food...she just has no clue any more than a man knows what it's like to give birth.

    Paris Hilton and Chelsea Clinton also don't have MS. And I wasn't aware that either of them are married to a man who has more money than Switzerland.

    Right. Which is why she apologized.
    Having the POTUS' foot up her ass may have also had an impact.

    Frankly, I don't care. Ann Romney has MS and her husband is beyond rich. I wouldn't work either.
    Michelle Obumble is fair game. She has been an advocate of her husband's failed administration. Now, the kids are off limits. I was PISSED when people made fun of Chelsea Clinton; SS agents I know always said she was a delightful and polite young lady. And while she was not beautiful (hardly her fault) she was always neat and she was in great shape.

    I wasn't talking about Newt's wife. If you want to, start a thread about it.

    Of course. She's a frequent visitor to the POTUS and he doesn't want anyone around him looking bad.

    then I'd say you don't understand how a marriage is supposed to work. there is no "my" money or "his" money...it's all OUR money no matter who's name is on the paycheck

    I don't want to be financially dependent on somebody else's money,
    even with a job...are you not dependent on your employer's money? they could go out of business, you could get fired or laid off

    nor would I always want to ask for permission before spending somebody else's money.
    again shows a lack of understanding of how a marriage is supposed to work. we discuss major expenditures but my wife never has to ask my permission to spend money

    It doesn't feel secure or safe to me, and especially not if there is a divorce and he doesn't want to pay me alimony. Where would that leave me?
    with court ordered alimony garnished from his wages if he doesn't want to pay it.

    You can't depend on another person to care for you and provide.
    yes you can.

    A marriage could sour, end in divorce, your spouse could suddenly die, etc. Not having financial independence is risky.
    that's what alimony and life insurance is for.



    I'd rather invest my money and make my own financial decisions, rather than allow my husband to run my life and retirement with his money.
    If those are your concerns, then I'd say you chose poorly when you picked a husband

    sounds to me like you assume all men are douchebags.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    I am sure this hateful attack on Ann Romney is helping fund raising. I received this link in an email today. I am thinking about contributing myself:
