I hear what you are saying, but even if you were single with no responsibilities toward your husband and kids, worked full time, and made good money....you would STILL be responsible for cleaning, laundry, cooking and general upkeep. It's life; there is NO way around it. I've been on BOTH sides of the coin, and neither is easy...they both require sacrifices, and at times, they BOTH suck.
Currently, my H is the stay at home parent, I work FT, go to school PT in grad school...and we both share in the household responsibilities. He sucks at laundry, so I do most of the laundry...I do the budget/bills, I am the one who usually does the correspondence when things need to be done with the mortgage or utility companies. He takes care of the kids during the day, goes to Dr. appointments, meals, cleans, yard work, etc...but he is the lucky one who also gets to go to the park during the day with the boys, plays with them, calls and tells me the funny things they say...I miss all of that. Pregnancy is hard, parenting is hard, being a housewife is hard, being the sole provider is hard...it is ALL hard at times. It's your perspective that can either make it easier or make it that much more harder.
