DH has a PhD in computer science and works as a software engineer for a big Silicon Valley tech company, he used to work in government research. I have a Masters degree in civil & environmental engineering and was in a PhD program but left with a Masters. I worked as a scientist and engineer in consulting and government research. At one time we both had govt research jobs and similar earnings (I had more years experience) but now I am a SAHM and he is making very good money in the private sector and has the potential to make a lot more over time. My field has limited earning potential, unless you want to work for the bad guys (i.e. helping big polluting companies like oil and agricultural chemical companies get off the hook - not my bag ).
