what would make me want to stay at home? I don't really like the answers you gave us, sorry. But I take this question serious for a minute and think about it...
Well it's one of those what if questions... I mean does my man earn enough so we can support our family if we have children? And of course there is the point that I like what I'm doing, it's part of me.
But money and all this stuff aside... I guess if I had a child who needs special care, you know? Had a handicap or something. There are nursing services and stuff like that but I think I really would like to do it myself.
I know a family that is in this kind of situation. They both work and take care of the child together, but their schedule is really hard and it's especially hard for the husband to handle the child and his job, so I think I would stay at home if I would be in this kind of situation. But this kind of things always depends...

Yeah, wow, totally biased answers there bud. You can work and cook and live at the same time. It should be equal. Men can cook too! And do laundry! It's not women's work anymore. The 1950s are over.
Clearly you're biased against women who want jobs, don't ask opinions if you're going to take a skewed vision of why women get jobs.
I don't want to be a house wife because I want to help support my family. Being a housewife I see as a luxery, I've never had much money, and after twenty years and 15 moves my parents are finally going to own their own house. Until now I've only lived in apartments or split houses. I started working at 14 at my local YMCA and have been working every since and I plan to keep working because to not work, to me, is lazy. To not work because your husband can bring in all the money, to me, is the selfish option. I want to help, I want to be a part of taking care of the kids, buying them things and making sure that there's food in the fridge when dinner time comes.
I'm not going to sit at home and prance about pretending to be a benefit to society. I don't care if I marry a movie star I've grown up learning the value of a good work ethic and the value in a hard day's work and that's what I plan to do with my life. Working and helping people through my work has always been a big part of my life and I'm not going to change that.
I wouldn't marry a man who wouldn't let me work. To me that's a big part of who I am. If I have kids I will be sure to take care of them and not let my work get in the way of doing so. I will be there for my husband when he needs me as well. And I expect him to do the same. I also want me kids to have the same strong female role model that my mother gave me, I want them to know that they can have a job, or stay at home, whatever makes them happy.
Yet again, your poll is stupid and biased.
