DH and I have been considering the idea of him being a SAHD. I have my BA and a great and secure career in graphic design and advertising with my employer. He's been out of work for a couple months now, and has only been able to find work on and off over the past 2 yrs. He's been doing a great job of taking care of the house and me through the pregnancy, and I don't know that we could afford daycare even if he was working. Right now we barely make it on my salary, but that's because we are trying to fix some previous financial mistakes.
My questions are:
Are there any major concerns of being a SAH parent that we should consider in our decision process?
Have any of you noticed less/more stress on your relationship with DH by one of you working and one of you being at home?
How do you tell your parents and family? I'm facing some hard conversations with my family accepting the idea of me being a career woman while he's a SAHD. It's hard to fight those stereotypes and to convince them that I want to be a working mom.?
