No, the bigger picture to debate is whether or not a child's needs can be met when one parent works long hours and sees them little.

>> He said their original deal was that she could go to work as early as she wants, as long as she's home by dinner. <<

I am sure that that's not the way he said it to her, but dang, that sounds archaic.

I can't speak for my husband, but I can speak about how our family works, and I can speak about my perception of my husband with firsthand knowledge. That is not hearsay.

I can also speak, in general, about how women in this society are perceived vs how men in this society are perceived. That is not hearsay.
