But I'm seeing a long road ahead in which women are more and more likely to be the primary wage-earner in a family. Already, nearly a quarter of wives make more money than their husbands. And husbands are certainly taking more responsibility for chores and childcare than they did back in the day. But men who are the primary caregivers - out of choice or because they're unemployed - are often looked upon as losers.
Both men and women are the future care-takers of the human race. One gender cannot do it all. One person has to work, the other has to stay home. Both are contributing. This is not gender specific. House wives are currently contributing, if not the husbands would not have the peace of mind to work out of the home. It takes both parties which ever way you choose to slice it.
