Today’s OPP is from Jason and he needs your help! Here’s what she said:


Yi guys,

My wife and I are torn. She went back to work after her maternity leave and has hated every minute of it for the last year. We could probably afford to make it on just my salary, but it would make things extremely tight. We wouldn’t be able to put any money into savings or our daughter’s college fund and we would have to cut back on other things too. She says it’s worth it to get to spend more time with our daughter for the next few years. While I understand where she’s coming from. Should she stay home with our child or is having a second income to provide for our needs a higher priority? -Jason


What advice do you have for Jason?
