We Reached A Compromise Edit*My DH told me I'll have to get a job and I laughed at him

My husband finally found out what he wants to do in life. He's going to go back to school to become a teacher...which is really shitty pay. We have 1 kid and 1 on the way. I'm a SAHM because I'm not putting my kids in daycare. I have a cosmetology degree. DH said I'll have to work when he starts teaching because he'll barely make ends meet with that salary...yeah, not happening. The way I see it is he should get a career that can support his family like he always said he would. I'm not going to be the breadwinner of the house nor should he break his word when he said he'd do anything that could support his family.
And before anyone says I'm an ungrateful bitch and that he'll divorce me...too bad I wouldn''t get much CS with his shittyass teaching pay.
Here's the teaching pay in OK, our state
Me and DH reached more of a "compromise." He's looking into the military. He's good in communicating and there's plenty of jobs for that. He's already applied for a college, but with flunking out of TWO COLLEGES ALREADY (a state university and community college, I might add) he has little chance of getting in. He basically has 2 options...trade school or the military. He's looking into both.
Well, I see some of your point. Olden day tradition has it that a man should support his family fully. I thought that for a long time because my mother raised me that way. (She is in her late 60's), but I'm starting to see and understand the burden my husband is facing in this economy. I will start working soon, because I love him and could never break him that way by placing full responsibility on him. It's OUR family, not just his.
