I’ve started looking for a new job recently. I’m qualified to do a few things, but there’s really only one I want.
I want to stay at home to take care of my wife’s babies, clean her house, and cook her dinner.
I want this because making other people happy is the most fulfilling and rewarding thing in my life. I love it. So I want to do it for my family.
I realize this is unrealistic given the fact more money would also improve my wife and children’s lives, so what I really want is a job I can do on the side that would let me stay at home and take care of things.
We’re going to start a family in the next few years, and my wife’s career path is punishing to mothers who take significant time off. It would be ideal if I could bring in approximately $4,000 a month on the side while making my family the main focus.
For all the sexualization of submission and domination–which my wife and I find hugely fulfilling–there’s a non-sexual component that makes me feel the most satisfied when I’m helping and supporting others. I’d love to find a way to have the best of both worlds, a job that lets me help others professionally while giving me the freedom to nurture my family.
The trouble is I have no idea what this job might be. I’m at least confident enough to say that this is what I’d like to do. My wife’s career carries tremendous potential. A sacrifice on my part would be small compared to the reward my wife’s would receive.
