It's just hard to think about, because of everything with my ex.

    My daughter's boyfriend's mom is a SAH mom. She is constantly making bitchy little comments about the fact that I work, and travel for work. I just chalk it up to her being a bitch and leave it at that.
    Well then that seals it. You're going to marry this guy because she sounds like the quintessential mother in law.

Not only to I understand the market, I am the one who runs the house matters.

    (I'm gonna toss a wink in here at Catz, because I know both she and I feel passionate about this subject. While we're both living opposite sides of the working mom fence, I'm sure she & I both feel the same way about choice. So before anything gets too heated, I want to be clear that while women may make different choices, that doesn't mean we don't respect each other).
    Oh, I totally agree with you on this one. It pisses me off when people imply that there is one right decision for women. We each have to decide individually what the best decision is for us. Maybe that explains the ambivalence, because choosing means taking responsibility for your own decisions.

    Well, my daughter is a little young (16) to get married anytime soon. God, this women is a heinous bitch...and that's coming from me, so you can imagine how bad it is.

    Crucial point. But in many cases the economy does force them to.

    My wife has a career, a P.H.D., two very handsome sons and a husband who always puts the lid down.

    She seems pretty happy to me.

    Seriously the truth, if you're pulling 35k+ a year, you can live well in most of the states.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Those things don't cause unhappiness. Frankly, some of the unhappiest people I know are wealthy.

    There is a correlation between wealth and happiness.
    Wealthy folks tend to be happier from what I've read.

    I think it has less to do with the actual money and more to do with self actualization.

    Yeah... they have more money and time to invest in personal growth. That is the main appeal to having more money for me, not really the material side of things... and it would be nice to have expendible cash for helping people.
