- 1Nov 26, '12 by joanna73 GuideI like to travel often. If I had the means, I'd work PRN. I do enjoy nursing, but not enough to work full time if I didn't need to. There are many other ways I could occupy my time. Education is another interest. I would enroll in school and take courses just for the fun of learning something new.
- 0Nov 26, '12 by Mom To 4I don't have to work but I do work prn 1 sometime 2 shifts at most per week. My husband is not a basketball player but he does well for our family of 6. I like to be home as much as possible for all of the children's activities. I attend everything possible for all of them. I am also now a full time BSN to DNP student but that is just for me. When I finish I will only work part time as an FNP.
- 3Nov 27, '12 by anotheroneMarried to a rich man means just that. Not that I am rich. ... If it ends, then what? Although, I suppose I could take a refresher job and try to get back into nursing if the need arose. Like another poster said, it is an investement in yourself. Now, if I were independently wealthy or won the lottery. HELL NO. I would quit by email. Maybe even text my manger's cell phone.
- 0Nov 27, '12 by Ntheboat2I don't consider being married to someone who is rich to be a reason not to work. That's for ME personally. I wouldn't be too happy if my husband decided he was going to quit his job and live off my income so why would it be okay for me to do the same? Even if I was told that I didn't have to, it would make me uncomfortable.
Besides, life isn't a fairy tale, and marriages don't always last forever. I like knowing that I can support myself and my children without a man or his money. That's just me though. I've always thought it was kind of funny when a woman would buy her husband some lavish gift and boast about it. It's like...umm...you bought it with his money so why so much pride?
I've never been a fan of the "traditional roles" either though. I know that some people enjoy staying at home with their children or whatever, but even then, I think the person who stays at home should have an education at LEAST so they have a means to support themselves if the situation arises. When things are good, they're really good, but when things are bad you'd be surprised at how quickly things become "MY house, MY car, MY money."
I would have to work even if I became rich though. I hate staying at home. I about went crazy just during the short time I was on maternity leave long ago.
- 0Nov 28, '12 by lindseyhardenstineI have been very fortunate, but I don't have to work, I WANT to. My husband and I aren't rich but I don't have to work. I had always wanted to be a nurse so I decided to go back to school and got into an accelerated RN program. I finished the program in September and I'm soooo excited to start working...but I haven't had any luck in the job department because I am a new grad I am only 28 and I work part time in the Air National Guard, because I love helping people and serving my country. My husband keeps telling me not to worry about getting a job, we can completely manage without me having an income, I just want to work! I'm getting bored at home, and I worked so hard to get through school that I can't wait to start seeing new fun things and helping others!!!
