Why I won't let my wife quit her job

Most of our friends think I’m a jerk because my wife works with the job that I have.

I do wonder a lot whether I’m a bad man for pushing her to do so even though she says she wants to stay home with the kids.

I’m just terrified she’ll lose her drive.

The happiest times I have seen my wife (besides with the kids) is when she has achieved professionally. I don’t want her to look back and say, “I could have done ‘this’ with my degree.”

I worry if something were to happen to me, she’d have to start over at a much older age.

I’m scared my wife will feel inferior to me — and resent me.
