I just wandered what percentage of this generation intend to give up full employment to become full time parents. I just find it strange like people like my mother back in the day with a bachelor and master degree ended up packing it all in to become a full time mother. although times were slightly different back then, i'm wondering if men and women alike nowadays would be willing to do the same? any full time parents on the hype? if so, how is it like, is it as rewarding as people think it is and at what age of your kids (if ever) would you consider gong back to full time employment. personally i'm not family orientated at this moment so i can't see myself giving up a career. saying this, i'm not sure i could see myself being with a partner who was 100% devoted to being a housewife, it just doesn't sit right, something about it makes me feel as though a piece of their lives are being sacrificed in order to raise the children and this could manifester as resentment towards them later in life and what child really needs that on their shoulders. thoughts are welcome even from non-milk producing boobyless men.
