I'm 24 years old, and I have a child from a previous marriage. I recently got engaged to a naval officer. We talked about having kids in the future and I going to nursing school to become an RN. The problem is that as soon as he gets back from deployment he wants to have a child with me IMMEDIATELY..he used that word in caps. Now I have my dream and aspiration to finish school so I can make good money for us, but he insist that I don't have to work b/c he makes rediculous amount of money. I already pay half of the bills, and I don't see why he wants me to do a 360 when I feel good about providing what I can..I still look out for my own daughter and some of my expenses. I honestly don't want to give up my dream and nevertheless give up work for the rest of my life to raise children. Not to mention how much more work and stress I would add to myself if I had a baby within the next year. I need advice, I need working moms opinions especially for those who have been single moms and juggle a career and or job, and kids. Could I balance a healthy family and marriage if I work and study?View Thread
