@MrsFuzzyFace: “Well, I am smart enough to know that my children need a mother and to get a husband smart enough to make enough money to comfortably support his family”
Yep. Children of working moms have no mom at all and any man who doesn’t make enough to support a family of four is obviously an idiot.
sigh. Responding to an ignorant comment with an ignorant comment is really not helpful.

OP, every woman that I now who’s a Stay-At-Home Mom is far from uneducated. They just chose their family over a career. Nothing wrong with that.

Well she sure sounds like a winner.

If we are going to be honest here, I don’t know many SAHMs, but the ones I do know either: 1) fit that description, or 2) are super-educated with wealthy husbands.

Actually, I’m an idiot… right after I typed that I remembered one of my best friends from college is a Stay-At-Home Mom and she doesn’t fit either of those descriptions.

I have to say that as a woman who has been a single mother that comment was particularly offensive. My eldest’s father died when I was pregnant. By that logic I “caught” the wrong guy.
I would have had a very hard time keeping my mouth shut on that one. Sometimes working in customer service can be the pits.

What a most delightful thread. This makes me sad for many reasons.

right? We give men/corporations hell for not respecting a woman’s choice to work or stay home after children arrive………and the worst critics/non-supporters appear to be other women

Offensive. I don’t work because it just doesn’t make sense to pay someone to watch daughter after school, and after missing some of her activities it just didn’t seem worth it to us. DH doesn’t have a degree and he has been a member of Mensa for years.
I have noticed that since becoming a Stay-At-Home Mom I have received more negative comments than positive. Even from “friends”. These are the same people who assumed that since I was a working single mother that I automatically had every Public Assistance benefit available. I had none. You can’t argue with some people.
