Gail, please do write about it! I think about this a great deal. The damage we’ve done with the dual-income route, and who’s it benefitting? “Mother’s work,” “Home Economics,” — we really threw out the baby with the bath water when we, men, and society failed to recognize or understand the importance of this work. It’s complicated. Of course I’m glad I have the option and can be independent. But I think we need to acknowledge what we’ve lost.
