I am a graduate. I was working as a bank cashier when I started dating my husband. He is from a rich home and money is not a problem for him. After we married and I got pregnant for our first child, He advised that I take a break from work to take care of our baby. What was meant to be a break became longer because just after a year, I gave birth to our second child and then in 2 years, our third child. In just about 4 years, we have already had three children and we have decided that we are done having kids.
My last born will turn 2 years in a few weeks and I think I am ready to get busy with work again. I have been used to working to earn my own money. My old work has agreed to take me back, which is a miracle considering the number of years I have been away. I love to work in a bank. Infact I add so much enthusiasm to the job that everyone loves me for it. My husband said he wants me to stay home and take care of our kids. But they have started school and I will be home in the evening to cook and do everything he wants.

It has always been my dream to be a career woman and pursue higher education. I want to do my Masters too and I don’t believe that being a married woman should stop me. My mum is making things worse for me as she has made it clear to me that a woman’s place is in the kitchen and that I should thank God I have a rich husband who doesn’t want me to work.
It’s like everyone from both our families is against the idea of me working. Even my brothers think I should stay home. I feel like I have more to offer outside there than to be a house wife. Please I need different opinions aside from my family and friends who have discouraged me and made me depressed.
