    When I get around to it, I definitely want my girl to work and not be a housewife. It's only fair.. but what about you?

    Not right away, but when the kid is a bit older. But, ofcourse I will offer as much help to my wife as I possibly can.

    I take it that the guys who say yes are planning to do half of the childcare and housework too, rather than just leaving that to the woman and also expecting her to work and cook for you?

    No.

    She needs to look after the child as well as continue her other duties such as cleaning, cooking, washing and being prepared to have sex when I want. No time for work..

    A nice way of thinking about it . But i think the kids should be the primary concern, if its better to be with a parent for them then in care then i'd drop out of work no matter how much i loved it.

    That would be a decision that we would make at the time based on circumstances. Whether both parents would continue to work full time, or one of us worked part-time or not at all.

    as stated in another thread, if we have kids, my hubby has offered to be the one to stay at home to look after kids... I would expect him to go back to work once the kids are older though!

    Sure, even if it's part time a few months after the birth. I'd have thought she would be keen to get out of the house for a bit. But hey this may not happen for a good 10-15 years so I don't even know why I'm thinking about it..

    I'd defiantly want to carry on working, maybe have a month off with the baby and get into shape again too & split the housework (cleaning, cooking, etc) between us both.
