I work at a foreign bank and there are lots of women who took maternity leave. If I married a traditional Japanese man -- and he was a millionaire -- and I didn't have to work, then I wouldn't.
To me it's OK to keep working, but if I have kids I would quit, because I think kids need a mum to stay home. When the kids start going to school, I might start to work again.
I'm married now, and working. I like to cook and I want to travel so I need to save money. I'll work even if I have children. Work makes a good balance because staying at home every day might drive me crazy.

No, I wouldn't. I want to get money by myself. It gives me more independence and freedom. Of course if I had children I would stop for a few years, but I would go back.
It depends, After I got married, I'd like to carry on working. However, if I had children I'd be very happy to be a housewife, stay at home and look after them.
I don't know what I'd do at home all day. I take care of children already so I might as well get paid for it. If I had kids I might cut back my hours, but my mother didn't quit work and I think I turned out alright.
