Yea. I would have to run my washer empty a few times with some bleach mixed in after each load of diapers went through. Just the mental aspect that someone just washed a bunch of terd soaked pieces of fabric in there would bother the hell out of me.

We did this and my husband made about that. It is completely possible. We just watched our money. Our dinners out weren't expensive. I clipped coupons and bought the half off deals a lot.
To me it's absolutely worth it if you can do it. I went back to work part time when my daughter was 2 and that was because my grandparents could keep her. Then I went back full time when she was 4 and in preschool. Your wife will love it but you also have to realize that just because she won't have a "job" she will work a ton! So you will need to help her out and give her breaks and let her go out and have a girls night out with her friends. It does get pretty lonesome when we you talk to a baby all day

It seems they never had sex but just when it was time that the kid was old enough to where she could go back to work then all of a sudden she would get really horny and want to bang until she was knocked up again. She just flat out didn't want to go back to work ever apparently.
My wife will probably never go back to work but she isn't going to keep having kids to accomplish that

Give it a shot for 6 months or so. That should be long enough to decide if you can afford it. Then if it doesn't work out, she can start looking for work and hasn't been out of the employment field for too long to be a turnoff to prospective employers.
