My opinion is that the marital couple makes these decisions. If the marital couple has decided that the woman or man stay home to be with the kids, and they actually do it, then to my mind, they've strengthened the marital unit and the family.

In the US, we are richer than ever - when measured in terms of "hours of work at minimum wage" to buy things, almost everything is lower priced than any time in the past (ignoring bumps and dips of the past 5 years). I know many families who have 2-4 kids, raising them with one lower middle class income.

That's like asking what my opinion is of a man who works. Nowhere NEAR enough info here to HAVE an opinion.

People don't get a free pass to cheat just because their marriage sucks.

Re: whats your opinion on housewives

What of I think of SAHM/W's?

Well I want one... hopefully she will do all the house work, shopping, cooking, take care of the dogs (children are grown and gone), and even do the yard. And hopefully she will not nag.

What a great concept. Where do I get one?

Re: whats your opinion on housewives

I can only speak for my own views. I have no issue against it for other couples, though it's rough in a divorce. The husband will end up paying to support her, even if she cheats, and she will have a hard time getting back into the work force. But, each couple must decide on their own.

My wife is a working professional and so am I. If we divorced, she and I would be on equal footing. I would have it no other way. Our children have not suffered in this arrangement.

Na, I'll get one without marrying her/him. Just need a contract that stipulates that she/he is an employee and that I put little to now value into what they do. So I can throw them out on the street (fire them) any time I want. And if they leave, they get nothing.

No. Only half of what you acquire after you get hitched. If you went into it with $10 million, then you would leave with $10 million...plus half of whatever additional growth occurred after said hitchment.
