8. I got to be a stay at home mom.
The entire time I was enraged that the culture was so hostile to working moms.

Now that I'm divorced, I wonder if I made the right choice, as my social security payout is permanently reduced.

I also hate it that sometimes people seem to want to promote a war between at home moms and moms who work. The two groups are NOT in opposition to each other. They are just two different groups. Parents, regardless of gender or other attributes, need a lot of support.
