I'd just do it, if that's what you want. It's good to make plans for the future eg. pensions etc., but you can live too much in the future. My DM never paid into any pension because she was always self-employed, and even though they never had any money when we were kids, they are comfortably well-off now (foreign holiday every year etc.) - and it's just because of my DFs very good pension. If you're worried, and you are not short of cash, then you could put money into a SIPPS (is that what they're called ?- a DIY pension), or even just into an ISA, if you think you might want access to it before you retire.

I know people who have done it, for childcare and also for travel. Also know someone who was turned down for it. It must be really hard to go back afterwards though! Especially if your other circumstances haven't changed, and you end up doing lots more because of your dh's new role.
Is part time an option instead?
