Everything You Need to Know.
Once upon a time women worked only because they had to, they had children because they happened to, and they stayed home to raise them because that was the default choice. Now they work because they prefer to, they have children because they decide to, and they stay home because they have consciously chosen that path. This paradigm shift has heralded an era of choice for women unlike any other in history.
But it doesn’t end there. Working for financial reasons? Be prepared to prove that you truly need that paycheck to survive. Jenny is a Philadelphia area newlywed in her early 30’s who is already concerned about her future role as a mother. While she agrees that many women work because they simply want to, she wonders if moms end up returning to work and placing their children in daycare because of “all the ‘things’ we seem to need these day…nobody can really afford to live the way they really want to live without two salaries.” And so it continues. Do we conclude that working to maintain a certain lifestyle is inappropriate? Most stay at home moms will tell you that there are ways to make spending choices –yes, choices – that allow them to raise their children while living on one salary.
