Another thread reminded me of this. Many families are raised where both parents work. If that is the case for you, how fulfilling is it for you? Society in general encourages marriage when it is a wise choice for few people, buying too much home, going shopping for things one can't afford to help the economy, etc. Having children is another of these, and the responsibilities and commitment to a kid seems much bigger than any of those other societal pressures put upon us. I want to get as clear a picture as possible of what it is like to have children before going into it.DH and I have long commutes, high achieving careers. We're out of the house a minimum of 12 hours a day. During the weekday, we'll do cooking, regular workouts, and chores, but that's it. It's hard for me to imagine that being a parent in that scenario can possibly be fulfilling or fun. Kids want play, kids want their mommy, kids need help with their homework, kids leave messes, kids need healthy homecooked meals, etc. In short, does the existence of a working family with children, in your experience, sound as zombie-like as it does on the surface? Is there anything you'd like to change about the situation?
