It works for us
. Check our post on that thread.
8 years together and we had Tomas 8/30/2011 . We have had a wonderful 8 years andhopingfor many more.
I may have had different critera than most ( wife is a homemaker), so those were the qualities
I seeked. It works because of our commitment to family and her strong traditional family values.
She is studying to be a dietician, 9 year in the future i will retire and stay home.
One of the advantages of real old guy, young wife and new baby. When i retire,i have a 401k, pension, and social security check for myself and my son who will be 9 years old.
If plans work out, i will switch roles and be a stay at home dad with a stead income. The wife's career will cover heathcare though i will have medicare and keep us in the same income bracket.
