[ - ] S/o of most popular and the 'boomerang' effect of women wanting to be SAHM. I expect I will be flamed for this by SAHM on now, but to the educated 20 somethings on here, it should not your goal to find a wealthy DH and SAHM. I'm in my late 40s now and have friends who have SAHM and know men in business who have SAHM wives. It's great for a year or two maybe but quickly becomes a sad and- other than micromanaging dc who resent you for it- meaningless existence. You become a shell of your former self, your DH secretly or not so secretly doesn't respect you, and you feel depressed and empty. Do not think somehow that having hobbies etc is a way to have a full life. It's not. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

That's my point. It's not my experience. It's what I have witnessed again and again. I know you feel defensive now bc you see what is ahead of you. Change it. Going to soul cycle and ordering from fresh direct is not a life for an educated woman, and on some level you recognize it. [ Reply | More ]

WOHM here - I don't know, I know many WOHM who are a shell of their former selves too. Working long hours, managing a household, caring for children, husband etc will do that to you. When you are a mom, there aren't a lot of ways to win. [ Reply | More ]

The email accounts isn't what did the people in - using their credit cards did. They should have used Amex giftcards, Visa giftcards, etc. [ Reply | More ]
