Thinking about getting a second job and wondering if it's unfair to DH. To explain, I'm in grad school, and have decided not to take any classes this summer. Not because I want a break but the required courses I still need aren't offered in the summer and the electives don't look appealing. While I've been working full time and taking classes at night, DH has stepped up and covered most of the household responsibilities. He does most of the cooking, all of the dishes, and helps with the laundry and other cleaning. We talked at length about my decision not to take a class this summer and he was all for it. The thought of a break and a little relaxation is so appealing, but I have started thinking about picking up a little side job for the summer to help pay down some debt, while I have the extra time. I'm not one to let grass grow under my feet, and I think we would both breathe a little easier with less debt, but this means he would still be covering most of the household duties while I am out. I think he looking forward to more sharing of duties so we both get more free time, and also spending more time together, without papers looming and study groups calling. Is it unfair to him for me to pick up a part-time job for the summer?
