Hi Annette,The court will not likely think you are an unfit mother. Most of the time you have to do some serious stuff to be seen as an unfit mother.If your job before was to raise the kids and manage the home, then that is normally considered your job now. While you may have to get a job eventually, rationally it doesn't make sense to get one now. Unless of course it is your dream job.However, as part of a settlement agreement, there may be things your husband is willing to agree upon (Example: More alimony for re-training or going to school to get a better job. This way he doesn't feel like he is paying the rest of his life.). I would take this opportunity to try and figure out what you REALLY want to do, that will fit into your schedule and see if you can negotiate something that will help with that.All of this is purely hypothetical of course, since I don't know your specific situation. But getting a Job just to get a job is not necessarily the best thing to do.
