Have you considered the lost potential income? Your analysis only looks at current income. A person may lose potentially more income due to lack of work experience. A stay-at-home parent working as cashier at the local supermarket may not lose much potential income increases but a stay-at-home parent in a professional field may lose much more income because he/she isn't advancing in their field or may even be losing the benefits of advanced training.Absolutely. DW was at the top of her game when she took her leave of absence (and eventual resignation). Being out of the work force for a few years will have a negative effect on her career, without a doubt. If money, DW's career, our home and lifestyle all meant more to us than our boy, I assume that we'd consider the same options as many of you. But it isn't, and we won't.
