    How to convince partner I want to work?

    Hi all!

    Me and hubby dont get along well with the idea of me working because she just want me to focus as a mother to our child and a wife to her. But I always find to have my own job fulfilling. I have been working before we got married but quit job after marriage because she asked me to. How can I convince him to allow me to go back to work without us fighting or without him feeling that I am neglecting my role as a mother and wife? help!

    hmm. maybe you can talk about it. just assure him that you can manage your time to as a career woman, and his wife and mother to your kids.

    You can work from home or find part time job that requires you to work only night/morning, so you will still have time to take care of the house and kids.

    Before even we met, he knows that I am a good career woman with goals of my own. He understands it as long as I still have time for the family.

    It is important to discuss these matters before marriage, but you should still try to convince him that you can manage time between job and home. If you can manage both house, family and job, you should convince him.

    if he knows how important it is for you to continue pursuing your career, he will let you continue doing what you want.

    Try working from home or work part time job. Either way, have a talk with your husband on the reason on why you wish to work instead of staying at home as full time home-maker.

    Talk things out with your partner if that's the case. I'm sure he'll understand if you just explain it properly
