Occasionally I think about whether, if I had known that I would become a SAHM, I would have made the choice to go to college or not.
I like to think I would have - I really enjoyed college for the most part and I'm sure I got more out of it than just what I would use if I had continued working.
Still, did it make sense to go and to get a degree? There were 5 years between graduation and now being a SAHM; I enjoyed working, but we've always been comfortable on DH's salary (we got engaged before I even graduated), and I do still pay some student loans every month.
I don't know if I will go back to work at some point or not, so I do think it's good to have the degree.
Just curious how others feel. When you were in college, did you ever think about whether you would work for a long time or did you know you'd like to have kids and stay home with them? Do you ever feel like you're "wasting" your degree, or was the whole college experience worth it?
I like to think I bettered myself by going, even if I'm not actively using my degree right now...
