This! I don't even think wanting to be a SAHM is a deal breaker for these guys (a lot of them know they don't need a second income anyway), but they don't want a woman whose sole interest in life was finding a man to take care of her so that she could be a "Soul-Cycling SAHM". That's why, as someone pointed out below, they tend to be former lawyers or IBs or women with MBAs- it shows that a woman is with her DH because he's on her level, not because she was a lazy gold digger who wanted a man to work so she didn't have to.

Just my $0.02 here...make some plans for next year so that if you decide to start trying you aren't just sitting there waiting to see if you get pregnant, and you will have fun adventures to look forward to. Insure your vacation plans in case you do get pregnant, so that if you do get pregnant quickly you aren't screwed out of all your travel money. We decided to start trying and also planned a trip to Australia. I ended up getting pregnant super fast, we were covered for our vacation, have a great daughter, and have a trip to look forward to in a few years. FWIW, I was 31 when we started trying, and while nothing is guaranteed, I reminded myself that chances are good Australia will be there in five years, while it may not be AS easy for me to get pregnant in five years. Best of luck either way!! [ Reply | More ]

This is such good advice. You can say 1000 nice things about DF/DH and your parents will think he is the best husband to grace the earth and then one rough patch, 1 anecdote about something awful that happened, it is as if the prior good deeds didn't ever happen. Plus, the more you tell others the rough things that happen the more you stew on them, and the more advice you get. Find a great therapist and don't look to friends/family for marriage advice.
