    Yeah it's a dicky email but it sounds like you two are in the middle of an argument and he was just trying to use sarcasm to score a point. I don't think it sounds like he is seriously down on housewives.

    Perhaps he is stressed beyond belief working away for 5 weeks at a time ... That would be hell for me. Perhaps he wants you to earn some money so he doesn't have to have a $hit job and be stressed. I might get flamed for this but I don't think it's fair for you to not compromise on this. Why can't you work a couple of days per week? Why wouldn't you want to do that if it meant giving your hubby a break? Why should you be the one to get the Ideal stay at home life?

    Apologies if there is more to this story I am just going off what's written here.

    I think there is resentment and jealousy you get to stay home and spend time with the kids whiles he's away earning money .

    Omg is he serous?! My mouth is on the floor. He definitely has a lot of resentment or is just an a$$!

    Ummmmm what?? I would not stick around for that treatment. Clearly he doesn't understand the difference between housewife and SAHM. Your job is to look after the kids. There's no respect there, I would leave and take him for every cent he has.

    My exH didn't when we were together, but now that I'm back at work full time I wish I had gone back to work earlier! I'm just one of those weirdos who enjoys going to work :P

    I'd love to be able to work part time during school hours, so I'm very envious of you.

    What about just a few hours a week? It doesn't have to be all or nothing if you're financial comfortable.

    I appreciate the fact that he works away and provides an income for us, but its not as if he has it tough! he is an officer on a ship. The contract he is currently on means he sits and stares out a window majority of the time there is no hard labour involved. His washing his done and his meals are cooked by a chef.. breakfast lunch dinner and dessert. Then when he gets home he goes and visits all the friends in the world, sleeps in whilst my workload doubles.
