My daughter plans to move to Denmark when she is ready to settle down and have kids. I don't think it has occurred to her NOT to have some kind of work in her life, with or without kids.

My advice is to not rush into marriage but think long and hard about it.

I know more families with SAHPs than single parent homes or two working parent homes so my perspective is limited, Lol.. I do think boys and girls s/b raised alike, And my hope for my kids is that before any ideas of getting married and starting a family are formed each one of them has finished school and started a job/career to build upon, I would also ask that they think long and hard before deciding to get married, Marriage is not easy and I think divorce is an easy exit for some too, A marriage is more than that ceremony on the beach or honeymoon! I don't think that choice to SAH is not much different now for young mothers than it was when I first chose to stay at home, And I see a lot of similarities b/w young moms today and older moms at home, Coincidence or commonalities and similar beliefs b/w generations? I don'tknow if I've answered your questions, I think women and men are on more equal terms than ever before, If mom wants to work after kids she should be allowed to, If she wants to stay at home and she can afford to she should, Same applies to dads. There is not that working stigma like in my mother's generation.
