Hi. hope you don't mind me asking but what factors made you decide that dh should be a SAHD? was he already not working or did he give up work to take on that role?

I ask because it is an option for dh and I when we have our second child and just wanted to know how you cane to the decision and whether it works.

He always earned quite a bit less than me.

He disliked work more than I did.

We thought it would be a lot of hassle to have to sort out nursery/childminder for DS1.

What he was doing was sort of coming to an end at the time DS1 was born.

It used to work fine and tbh it is me queering the pitch now rather than him.

There are quite a few other mumsnetters whose other halves are SAHDs too and I'm sure there have been some ohter threads on it. You might want to ask a few other people - don't let my currently rather jaundiced views put you off, please!
