I’m going to make a statement here that probably will won’t do me any good. My two daughters are both successful women, one as an HR director for a high tech company and the other as an associate professor of psychology after several years as a research scientist. Both have two children and both are married, now, to men who provide a lot of child and home services as neither has a career job. It works out very well. Obviously my daughters are the ‘bread winners’ in the old terminology. I tried to raise them to do this kind of thing if that is what they wanted and damned if they didn’t do it.

This is also, obviously, as much as factor of the men they are partnered with as they are all quite happy. So this is possible and I’m sure my daughters are not the only ones. I just don’t know what else I can do to make this normal.
