John and I have been married for 5 years now. We decided that I’ll be a stay-at-home wife after marriage while he continues to work as a finance manager in a banking firm. The arrangement was pretty much comfortable at the beginning. I make sure that I attend to his needs and take care of our household. We also decided not to have babies at first. We wanted to experience our togetherness and enjoy each other’s company before we bring in children to our family.
The values are obvious. These couples are putting the needs of their kids first and their own needs second—but it’s a close second and that’s the beauty. — Susan Pease Gadoua L.C.S.W.
