My husband and I are both 30 and have an 18 month old son. I am also 5 months pregnant. He lost his job a couple of months ago after working for the same company for 10 years. He was a manager for a transportation company. He has since found another job in a related field making a comparable salary. I quit my job when my son was born to stay home and take care of him. My husband has recently expressed his interest in becoming a police officer. He has talked about this in the past but never followed through on pursuing it. I am totally opposed to this for a number of reasons and this has caused a lot of discussions and arguments between us. I would have to go back to work a lot sooner than I would want to because his salary would be cut in half. We would also have to put our kids in daycare b/c we don't have family available to help take care of them. We would also have to sell our house and move to the municipality where he would be a cop. And everyone knows now is not the best time to be selling your house. Not to mention being a police officer can be dangerous and I think I would worry about his safety all of the time. Many family and friends I have spoken with take my side on this but my husband still feels I am being selfish. He thinks that I am against this because I don't want to have to back to work. I did plan on returning to work when the kids were older but we both made the decision for me to stay home with them to avoid having to put them in daycare when they were little. Am I being selfish or is he for putting himself in front of what I think would be best for our family? I have been really stressed and emotional over this which I don't believe is good for me since I am pregnant.
