Ask Amy: Homemaker’s devotion is waste of a good career
I am very resentful of her career choices and have expressed this many times.
I think she is lazy and used the kids and house as an excuse.
Our kids are both in college now, and I am paying for all of it.
My wife now has decided to pursue a second degree so she can increase her skills.
I told her that I would help her start a small business if she abandoned going back to school.
I do not feel obligated to pay for her education, which I could easily do. She is taking out student loans, but she will never be able to catch up to my salary.
Am I being unreasonable for not helping, and for feeling so resentful toward her?
