Dear Glenn,

My husband and I are both first year law students. I'm six months pregnant. My husband would like me to complete the rest of this school year and then dropout to be a full-time mom. I, on the other hand, would like to complete my degree. Both my mom and my husband's mom agree that I should finish my education, and they have both offered to help with babysitting. What should we do?


Want to be a Lawyer

Dear "Lawyer"

Based on your signature, Lawyer, I'd say you know what you want to do. But, since you asked, I will give you my two cents.

You and your husband are in an awesome situation with your mothers. Take advantage of it and complete your law degree and pass the bar exam. If at that point you want to stay home and raise a family, then do so.

Life does not give guarantees, and should you ever be in the situation wherein you are the sole financial provider for your family, you'll have a law degree from which to benefit. It's all about CHOICES. Do what you believe is best.
