We both work. I started my career right out of college and he did the same. I met him on one of my many vacations to NY. Two years of long distance and we moved in together. Had our first DD at 27. And are now living in NC with 3 other kiddos and still enjoying our careers and lives 15 years later.

Ok, I'll go. Prepare to rip me apart lol...had my first dd at 18. Got my BA as a single mom, but moved back to my small town to be with an undeserving man. Stayed here because it was easy. Had another beautiful dd at 29 with someone I was ridiculously in love with. We got married. Now I'm divorced at 32, single mom of 2, and broke as ****. This is the stuff Disney princesses are made of, ladies!

Yeah, mine isn't exactly Disney princess story material either. I had my first at 18 too

It's working for you though, kudos mama! I work at a school, so put my (minor) taxes away to live off for the summer. I get very little child support for my oldest, and it's "being processed" for my youngest. There will be no back pay, just calculated on her dad's current pay which will likely be nothing, in "maybe 6 months." I don't mean to sound like a bitter ****; I'm actually very grateful for what I do have, but it's frustrating.
Kind of. Dh and I are solid, but after all the mistakes weve made we spend most days feeling like we are drowning. I hear your bitterness. I'm right there with you, even if it's for different reasons. Hopefully things will go better than you think they will with the child support stuff.

Ours is boring.  :D
We married the month before I turned 22 and he was already 22. That was 33 years ago.
We only have 1 child, a dd that will soon be 28.
We have both worked full time from the beginning(other than the  two times I took time off to take care of my terminally ill parents). I have been self-employed our entire marriage and both of us have stayed in the same career the entire time.
We are in no hurry to retire because we both enjoy our jobs.

We're old farts. My sons are grown, one married, one engaged. His son is grown too. All three live in our city. I have one grandchild, a girl who is (my personal opinion) the most amazing wonderful child ever. I'm retired, worked in day care my whole adult life. It fed and clothed and took care of my sons and I. I've been lucky.  I'm retired. I stopped working to help out with my mom when my dad died and we had to bring mom here to live near me. The Mr is still working and plans to for a few more years. That's us, old, boring but pretty damn happy.
if you don't think, you drown.

We both work.  We're in our 50's and have a daughter and a son in their early 20's. Our daughter is married, and lives out of state.  She's done well.  She and her husband both graduated from college, bought a house and are expecting their first child.  Our son disabled.  (I don't want to go into a lot of detail) We both work full time in our chosen professions.  I oversee my son's care and education.  Sometimes it's hard and/or frustrating, but it's worth it. They are very different people and parenting them has been very different as their needs are not the same.  I am proud of them both.

I'm bored, so yeah...

What's life like in your family? Do you work, stay home, both work? Single parent, military family, business owners or just kind of floating along in life? Other interesting tidbits about you?

I'll start. My dh is a truck driver and owns his own company. I stay home with the kids and am working in building my own small business for something to do other than bring just "mom"


I work full time outside of the home. I am a nurse, I work 3, 12 hour shifts a week from 7p-7a. My husband also works full time outside of the house, M-F 7a-4p. I am getting ready to go back to college for my master's degree.

Just me and 2 kids at home one in college. We live in very small town in a rural area of the Midwest. I work as a receptionist at our local vets office (best job ever)!

I grew up here so I have a great support system. My parents are 3 minutes away and the kids kinda stay between us.

Ds10 is high needs and gets bussed to a school an hour away. Dd is 12 and in 7th grade. She's active in girl scouts and drama club and plays softball.

 Ds20 is in his second year at a community college 45 minutes away. He is on the spectrum with comorbid diagnosis of a adhd and OCD. He lives in the dorms there and is active in theatre and anime club.

I have 2 English bulldogs, a fuzzy minion of death(orange kitten, he's evil) and a guinea pig.

I love my life.

I was a sahm for about thirteen years and now work part time in retail, which I have the same love/hate relationship with as always. Love that it never gets boring because dealing with so many people means there's always something new and hate how sometimes, to put it bluntly, people suck.

My husband is a commercial electrician. We have one child who's beginning high school this year and lead a pretty quiet life. I usually work evenings and come home to a sleeping household, so our dogs keep me company while I watch Netflix awhile or play on the PS4.
