I have two kids now and my career has taken an up swing. I work a sales job and got a huge pay out because my commission was 50%. I closed a 500,000 dollar deal. I can now pay off our house and student loan debt. After all of that she says she now wants to stay at home with the kids but women faught so long to be in the workforce. I don't want her to be a lazy bum. If a man were to do this he would be seen as lazy, so I told her no and the reason why and now she is mad. What are your thoughts?

- no, she is lazy, she should have to work to and the pressure is not fair to put on your shouldersVote B

Being a stay home mother is not an easy job. I don't know how you guys work and divide the jobs when it comes to taking care of the house. But my dad wouldn't have to take care of me and my brother as much because my mom is a stay home mom. How old are your kids? If they're still very young, why wouldn't you want your wife to take care of them? I mean isn't the best to have your partner to raise and take care of the kids rather than have a nanny or a daycare to do the job? Do you have maids to sweep and mop or clean the dust, cook, do the laundry, iron your clothes, and all of that? If you do, I would understand why you want her to work cause she might need something to keep her sane. But if not and she's the one who does all of that, I wouldn't call her a lazy bum.2

Damn straight she's lazy. This is the 21st century and if women have equal rights they should have equal responsibilities as well.0
