Re: Wife's Contribution
[QUOTE= I often feel inferior, dependent, powerless, guilty, lazy, kept, bored, suspicious, identity loss, useless, unappealing, alone, worthless, etc. I try not to dwell on those feelings and instead, be thankful that my husband has provided a great home for us. He works hard and smart, and I respect him for that![/QUOTE]
You seem to be able to balance how being a SAHM makes you feel in terms of being financially dependent and recognizing & appreciating the hard work your husband puts in to provide for your family.
I'd like to know though, when it comes to feeling lazy, dependent, guilty to spend his hard earned money, kept etc; do YOU just feel that way or does he ever say/do anything or have an underlying attitude of any sort that evokes those feelings?
I'm just curious to know because I would like to pause my career to be a SAHM when I have children some day. I'd like to know if I do feel like that, would it be natural & internal and I'd just have to 'deal' with it?
