The other day I was talking to a friend and we were talking about her work schedule and how her company changed her whole departments hours to start earlier. She was fuming over childcare issues. Another girl we know has kids and is in her department and I commented that at least since her hubby is layed off she will not have to worry about childcare.
My friend then told me that is not the case. That since the kids are her hubbys stepkids, and not "their" kids that she still needs a babysitter because her hubby does not watch them while she works!!!!!!!!!!!!
So that means that hubby is layed off, she is paying the bills, but he can't even watch his stepkids during the day?
Sometimes I don't understand why some people get married. I see marriage as a joining. Two people combining their lives. Nowadays it seems more like marriage is two people living seperately under the same roof.
