Re: do caregivers get benefits?

What type of benefits are you talking about? For taking care of your husband? No, that is part of the "in sickness and health" of marriage. Taking care of a little one is also something that you decided to undertake. I mean that no one forced you to have the child, correct? It's not a foster child or a ward of the state? Someone isn't paing you to watch/keep the child..Then you don't get any benefits for child rearing...but it sounds ogod. Some countries pay the mother to be home for a year after the baby is born.
