I am a stay at home mom. It's not "just" a stay at home mom. It is an important job and one that I LOVE. This comment makes it seem like a mom doesn't need an education. I would suggest the complete opposite. I have a degree in mathematics and know all the things I learned in college and up to this point, will make me a better mom to my kids. I don't "rely on a man." My husband and I work together to have a great family and that includes me being a huge part of my young children's lives. Education shaped the person I am and I will never regret any of it or think it was a waste in any way.

I could never do that. Yes I want kids someday, but that doesn't mean I'll give up my carrer. Plus then you'd have to rely on a man, bleh.

I've always wanted to be a mom. Maybe it's just because the societal influence that people are supposed to go to school, get a job, then have kids, but regardless, I've still always wanted then and I've always wanted to be a scientists so I've considered how I would balance the two. I don't want to have kids until I've got a career established, which wouldn't be until I'm 25-30, and that's fine with me cuz I don't want to haver kids until my brain is fully developed, I don't want to have kids until I've learned a lot and feel like I would have something to offer to a new life in this world an would help them to develop into a wonderful person. And yeah, I'd have to rely on my husband for the first few years cuz I'd wanna be with my kid, but I wouldn't see it as a sexist "man takes care of stay at home mom" deal, I'd see it as a logical descision to have someone look after the kid and one support the family so they could survive, I my husband is more financially stable than me hell be the one to keep working, and I'm assuming that's what will happen since men typically make more money than women, but if I'm more financially stable than him I want him to stay home.

I agree with what everyone's saying. I'm talking about I want to get a masters degree, but after I accomplish that I get married and decide I'd be happier being the parent to stay at home? It's an expensive education to put on hold.

There's a lot of typos in my comment, sorry. I'm too lazy to go back. And fix then.
