Plus childcare, which would run $150 per child in our area, per child, per week...down to $50 per child per week while they are in I've basically been providing $450 per week of childcare (nevermind OT, which the daycare centers charge $5 per 15 minutes, so some days would have OT of $20 per hour, for four hours, $80) plus $75 per week of housekeeping (minimum), nevermind the cost of chef services and accounting...or at minimum, $225 per week of services he would have to pay for from anyone but his wife, plus fix his own meals and do his own books.

Which I did books, too, at $50 a week for general household stuff.

All this stuff he would have to pay for, or do himself.

But I'm useless.

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.
