Hi, I have always worked. I have always been the :strong independent" type woman. One of the things my husband has always said is he loves that I "have my own life" i.e.: Im not clingy or needy.
But we want to have a family. And he wants to be the bread-winner and have me stay at home. When I talk to him about not wanting to give up my career he just says Im a control freak (I'll admit, I am a bit). He says if I don't want to give up my career than we just shouldn't have kids.
I don't know what to do! Our relationship is so good in every other way. Im also SO afraid if I become a stay at home mom I will resent him following his career and that he won't even notice my contribution to our relationship anymore.
