I know there's no fool proof way of ensuring your marriage lasts/your perfect spouse doesn't turn into an ******** - however if my daughter was confident and independent prior to marrying, chose her spouse smartly (eg didn't shack up with the dude 3 months after meeting him) then I would say following her dreams and being a SAHM was worth the 10% risk that 20 years down the track her hubby would be an ********, they would divorce and she wouldn't be able to find a job
(Just to clarify I plucked that 10% figure!)

@harvs I too have a son and I worry that he would be placed under undue financial pressure if he was the sole breadwinner. I know it bothers my DH when I've had periods of not working. He hates being the sole breadwinner.
While I plan on keeping my opinions to myself once my kids marry I'll quietly be praying they all find a balance.

Money doesn't buy you happiness but it doesn't do much for your general happiness either having to choose to buy food or pay the power bill.

I know I said I was out but
I really regret changing my name when I married. DH knows this and is very happy for me to change it back but I just haven't got around to it.
