More than one out of ten SAHMs lives in poverty by the official definition of the U.S. Census Bureau. That's a fairly good sized minority, and to me it signals some kind of endemic problem. Why are these married women living in poverty rather than working outside the home? I can think of several answers -- there might be some reason they can't work, such as a health issue. Or they might have to take care of young children or be caregivers of aging parents or other relatives because no affordable alternative is available. They might have some religious reason for staying home. They might be unable to find work. Whatever the reason, it's a shame that these women -- and their children -- are living in these conditions in this day and age.

you do realize that most of society (almost 75%) CAN'T base their standard of living on one salary, right?

Or they might not be able to afford the childcare that they need in order to work.

I'm a WOHM. I've never ever based my standard of living on two incomes.

that's very kind to assume who that 12% consists of.
