One of the main reasons I am a sahm/not working is because of the type of job my dh has. I know, this may sound like an excuse, maybe it is and I just don't realize it. dh is in management and for the last 10 years he has only taken 1.5 sick days and vacation time had to be planned many months in advance. To keep his job/position he has to be available at anytime, work OT on a moments notice etc. Sure, I could work if I had someone to rely on for last minute childcare, including driving them to activities etc. but I don;t. Yes, there are jobs like some childcare situations which I could do. But I'm talking about working a career like job. I don't resent my dh, but sometimes I feel that he does not understand that in part he is able to work the job he does and have a quality family and home life because I don't work. Can anyone else relate?
