    If she wants to work she can work, I wouldn't want her to have to work, and I wouldn't want to pressure her to work.

    I don't mind but i would prefer her stay be around the children when they are young. So therefore i wouldn't want her to work until the children are roughly 3-5

    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?[/IMG]
    How so?

    I'm quite happy to stay at home with my kids whenever I have them, but it'll be a choice me and my partner make, not an expectation or a duty.

    Will you not be one of their parents?

    So why don't you stay at home, if them growing up with their parents is so important to you?

    I would never be able to be a housewife. Never. Like someone else said, I would rather be single and childless.

    Ideal world- I stay at home with the baby for a few months, I would like the father to stay at home too as long as he can- I realise it's easier for women to get maternity leave. Then I'd go back to work. Ideally both me and my partner would be in jobs where we can take 2-3 days off a week, and the rest of the time relatives would spend the day with my child. I don't like the idea of childcare at all. However I expect I'm going to have to make some compromises, of course.

    Why don't you stay at home then?

    I wouldn't mind. It'd be nice to earn enough so she didn't have to but I'll leave it up to her. Plus, if she does the chances of her shagging the milk/postman out of boredom would be severely reduced.

    i mean that both can work .. but the mother is more important to be with the children... so she can work few hours .. not all the day..
    but if my wife wants to work a lot, or if she wants to do a difficult job its ok.. i wouldn't stop her...!!!!

    You should be more specific. Do you mean immediately after the child is born (like 6 months/a year) or for the rest of the time after that?

    You realise that these two statements are in complete opposition to each other, don't you?

    Lol, surely it's up tp them?
    I'd be happy so long as they were happy, whether that meant they would work or, stay at home.

    I would support either of her decisions.

    I'd personally like to work and also care for any kids I have, as kids are fun.

    Parenting classes are a necessity though

    Because the original question was a question. The second was not a question but a retaliation.

    I'd want to stay at home with the sprog until he or she was a year old or so...I wouldn't necessarily 'want' to work but I wouldn't want to be reliant upon my husband for money.
