"Whether you stay at home or work outside the home, would you change your status if you could?"
I can and would if our circumstances changed. (EG my DS2 miraculously woke up without his LD or DH decided to take a more flexible reduced hour job.)

For a few yes, for many, no. For me? No way!

I could but I wouldn't I enjoy being home and it would be
Not really. We do get together at least once a year, and it's always nice to put real faces rather than avatars to a person. It was an adjustment in the beginning, but I can't imagine ever being tied down to an office or 9-5 job ever again.
