Yeah I'm getting married next year. My fiance would prefer to be a stay at home mom but it just doesnt make sense to do that anymore.


My youngest are 11 now but my wife didn't start working until a couple years ago. Sure things have changed some but we could make do today without her income. Maybe you shouldn't be trying to keep up with the Joneses.

"Sell it"...as opposed to what....lounge around on a park bench?? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Nope, you don't. We choose to work 5 days a week because we value the benefits of doing so more than the benefits of not. Nobody cracking a whip

So you would rather not work, is that what you’re saying?

I'd rather not work that much of my time. The benefits of automation should be shared with society by having a shorter work week.

That's, why you have to find something that you love doing. Find a way to make a living at it, and you never have to go to work.

It takes focus and some sacrifice, but anybody can get there, if they set their mind to it and don't shoot themselves in the foot. First thing: don't spend your money on dumb shit, that you don't really need.

You only work 40 hours? Get a second job and let your wife raise your kids.

He's not even married yet. Probably has a big truck/car payment/ insurance, all the latest electronic gadgets/phone/internet/cable bills and wonders where his money goes.
The answer isn't to work more, but to spend less, and save your money, or spend on things that will retain value and maybe even appreciate.

LOL.
How old are you that you cannot get SIMPLE FACTS right?

Seriously.
Do you check things for factuality before you post, or do you simply function as a CNN sock puppet?

Do you believe only big business has lobbyists? Labor unions have lobbyist, as do environmental groups, trade associations, teachers, government workers and just about any sub group you can think of. Hell, even illegal aliens have lobbyists. It is not at all a one sided deal.
