You are a computer engineer, you are more vulnerable to the volatile market than I, a Software Engineer. You know the market is going to leave you behind while you take off 6+ months to attend to your child(ren)?

That's why I mentioned the good laugh. I don't think either one of our jobs nature will let us smoothly re enter the industry after 10+ years of child rearing.

If you mean you'll have kids and someone else will have them most of the time, than I apologize, that is indeed possible.


The trend for most successful marriages these days are dual income marriages. Who's working more will be a matter of who's making the most money between the two of us, in my case that would be myself.

I plan to to save up for some time off, and I don't really plan to live high off the hog either (simple isn't bad). My father (main provider) was actually laid off for two+ years with 5 kids, you'd be surprised what a family can pull off if you spread your cash right. I think you underestimate how much can be saved up.

I definitely do not plan to take off 10+ years. I might have to just get right back to work. Both my parents worked and raised 5 kids, it's completely manageable. Between my husband and myself, as well as family to help out where needed (Hopefully not often, but I never will use a daycare) it'll be fine. I lucked out on having parents like mine, no doubt, but they serve a fine example for me on how to do it.

The market I'm in isn't exactly that volatile here. I'll always have demand actually. Plus there's the ability to work from home with most companies, like the one I'm currently in.

I think you'd be surprised. It's not as impossible as you think.

Out of the surviving marriages, I must say I do not have the faintest clue of which one lasts longer(dual income marriage or not).

I guess it is possible if you put it that way, but it sounds awfully difficult if you are already planning to use other family to help out here and there... Which ain't really "bad" but still....

It's not the amount of money that's the problem, I think, the thing I was getting at was time spent, but you have a different engineering job than I thought if you can work from home, that actually changes everything.

I thought you were like, packing up your bags to move to California to work at like, Google for 750k a year.

I guess I assumed your work would be like mine, such as pursuing opportunities with companies like Chair Entertainment, The Coalition, Rovio, Twitter, 343 Industries. Etc.

The crap you gotta work like 50+ hours a week for to meet deadlines and crud.

Maybe I should stop going for the big dogs and pick a smaller company too...

An interesting read: http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2014/02/how-to-save-marriage-in-america/283732/

You really should. Smaller companies are usually easier to work around. Still pay really well, and less business trips.

Brain-washed women who think they're just here to reproduce. (sorry OP, lol )

I also laugh at misinformed anime haters who don't even know what it is and have never watched an episode.


I suppose I may never understand why some woman think their only purpose is to reproduce. I tell them things like "you know you can just not have a kid and advance in your career" Then I get this kind of look as if we don't speak the same language.


That's weird, it's normally the other way around.

I'd pay to see some broad try a career and kids. That should be a good laugh! xD


Why do you attack your fellow women so much?

I don't laugh, I just shake my head. I worked with a brony who did medieval reenactments and apocalyptic events.

Because cunts(and manginas) deserve it.

I don't have much to say about Red Pill Women/Honey Badgers or PUA/Red Pill
Men. Women today just managed to be privileged and have an army of white knights everywhere they go that prevents them from objectively talking about anything and making their feelings superior. Women seem to invoke hypoagency 100% of the time instead of having any introspection whatsoever. They shamefully use their wealth of white knights in media and even among daily conversation to the point where cunts and women are nearly synonymous.

Every group of "red pill" women always finds a new name for themselves as no one wants to be lumped with the gynocentric toxic, quivering pile of toxic femininity hypo-retards commonly rolling around the streets.

I actually prefer women over men, they should just act like women and not the angry butch tattoo'd lez-queens that they've become.
