My husband and I have been discussing how I can quit my job to either work less hours or none at all in order to spend more time with our son. Our son is 15 months old, and we still haven't figured it out. The problem?
1. Right now, my husband is around all the time so not only does our son get to enjoy him, but so do i.
2. I make enough money that supports our family, and I have good benefits.
3. I don't work more than 40 hours AND I don't have to travel
Our feat is that once my husband goes back to work full time, that it will include long hours, and potentially travelling (the nature of his industry). The other concern, although less of one, is that he will make significantly less money to start.
So, what do we do? Do I continue to be in a job I hate? Do I find another full time job that pays as much, but I still don't have more time with my family? Or do I throw caution to the wind, and let my husband go back to work, and risk seeing him quite a bit less than we do now.
