Is it worth it to drive 30 miles to a 40 hour week job that pays 8.00 hourly and you really want to stay home with your child but your husband says you have to work?

With the gas prices so high...probably not. I'm a stay at home mom, and it is a true blessing being able to be with my children every day. Being home with your child is so important you'll never get these years back. It is possible to live on one income if there is a strict budget. Plus when you're home you can take care of all the household chores that need to be done. I used to work and I know how exhausting it is to work and then to come home to a baby and a messy house. Be open with your husband and talk to him seriously about this. Maybe you can find some work at home to do. One means of income is watching one or two other kids that would bring in a little income at least $130 per child per week. I hope everything works out for you. Run through the effects on your taxes and see if most of your salary is going to taxes. Add up the expenses of working (gas, child care, clothing, eating out). Finally, look at the budget, bills owed, and expenses of running your household. Can you live more frugally and simply? Visit a financial planner and find out how do make it happen. Another thing to consider is whether you will do more cooking and other tasks to reduce household costs when you have the time. Sometimes it takes awhile to work into the routine. Finally, it is good to keep your hand in on working, since if anything did happen to him, you would readily be able to work. I was a stay-at-home mom and loved it, but I did have to hold expenses down and did have trouble getting back into the working world after years away.

Only you can find out if your husband is cheating on you and you can either hire a detective to follow him or find a girlfriend that will be willing to drive you around and follow him and catch him in the act.

Umm, they really dont drive?? people drive them, you need to learn to drive then you can drive the car... it's quite obvious really......

User Avatar

Be smart and don't say a thing. That way you can read what is being said and perhaps there is nothing to it at all. By saying something and the possibility of your husband cheating it will only drive him underground further and then you'll never really know. Most important- keep copies.

No, the child needs to drive the other car. No, the child needs to drive the other car.

When you drive slow!! And if you do, you really need to be in the right lane. Because if you drive slow in the left lane, you'll really (really) make people mad!

Take him by the heels and throw him in to the trunk of your car. Drive to an isolated area and dump the body. You are now husband free.

You can't really drive them but your sims can.

Yeah. It's really fun to drive and can dominate in multiplayer. Really close rivals with the Scorpion.

Able to drive depends on maturity of child. Legally no.

A child of any age can drive on private property, such as a farm or ranch, and often do.

It is likely that if the husband is unable to drive, then he can't get insurance and the wife would have to be insured. You need to check with your insurance company.

it is safe to drive slower because you could get in a car accident if you drive really fast
