It does depend on if we are married. If we were together and she was not actively seeking work, then I would sit down with her and discuss our situation. If she's willing to be a homemaker/stay-at-home mom, then I'd have no problem bringing home the dough solo. However, she needs to get things done at home. Otherwise, it's not going to work out - because that is what a homemaker does - gets things done around the house. If we are not married, then I would be more leaning towards cutting her loose. I'd rather not waste my time or hers if she isn't willing to pull her weight in the relationship. I'm wiling to do what I can when I get home. But considering she would have 8 hours (or close to it) every day that I'm at work available to do things, she should definitely be able to take care of a bunch of chores. I wouldn't care wish ones she chose to do, as long as they get done and she makes valiant effort to get as much done as possible. It's VERY likely that she would get all the chores done and still have extra time to do whatever she wants. If that's the case, then great! I don't want her to rush and risk getting hurt. But the more, the better. Otherwise, she either needs to get a job or consider being with someone else.0
