@Daizy914:  not even considering the baby fever part of this, if you enjoy your job that much and make a comfortable living, I don’t see any reason to stay in school for something you won’t end up doing.  Is there any reason your DH wouldn’t want you to stay in your current job long term?

@Daizy914: Definitely finish school! You are so close… And what about the money and time spent so far on schooling, are you willing to hash that up to a waste of time (AND money)?

I don’t want to scare you, but just because your have a permanent full time position now, doesn’t mean you will forever. Lay offs happen (it happened to me)… Wouldn’t it be nice to have your schooling as a back up plan?

@Daizy914:   I think your DH is being silly, but everyone’s priorities are different.  I’m not in a “career” job now, but I enjoy it and make enough money, and to me its just a job that I do to keep food on the table and pay bills.  It doesn’t define my life or who I am.  I think you waking up happy to go to work every day is much more important than holding a fancy job title.  My DH is the same way as yours though and feels that everyone judges you on the career you have, so we don’t see eye to eye.

 

As far as potentially “wasting” all the schooling you already have, s**t happens.  Life happens.  I “wasted” four years on a Poli Sci degree that I don’t use even a little bit now.  If school isn’t making you happy and you’re not motivated, it’s time to cut your losses and move on.
