If I have a bad work day and start to think about becoming a SAHM, I always go back to this book. One bad day doesn't equal a lifetime of regret. Working is good for my marriage, my kids, and my well being. My daycare costs are almost as much as my salary . . . but this won't last forever. Why would I sacrifice decades of employment over a few years of daycare costs? Would my degree and awards mock me later on if I gave up my career? The author visits this in this book.
Working is AWESOME for your marriage! Why didn't someone tell me that it would be better? My husband views me as an equal and helps out tons at home because I have a career just like he does. My husband makes enough money that I do not have to work--but I choose to work. It makes me that much better (and happier) of a person.
Every mother should read this book!
I can't help but agree with her. Nearly every issue she presents about staying at home speaks to me. It's amazing to me, partially because my husband is absolutely amazing, and any examples where the husband is a dick is not really applicable. I can't imagine him ever using the power of being the breadwinner over me, but I know I would use it over myself. I could see myself not feeling like I have the right to discuss his spending habits or question the big purchases he would want to make. About discussing our daily lives, I'd worry so much about being boring to him.
She reduces such a religious, emotionally ambivalent issue to a simple risk analysis and I love her for it. Most of the non-divorce examples can simply be reasoned away by a good life insurance and disability insurance plan. But, including the divorce issue, any man who would want to put his family (wife and children) in that kind of risky position is not a real man at all, traditional or otherwise.
I'm thankful to have found and to have read this book.
