On the economical side of things, a comparison needs to be made between the homemaker and working-wife families.

Are you the author of this article you posted? Or just share the views? If you feel being a sahm is best for your family, I think that's great. I used to sah for many years and enjoyed them.

But I would definitely disagree with the article which was a lot of ridiculous assumptions. And your statement that women should only have a family or a career. That's a very narrow opinion and one that just doesn't fit many successful happy families.

You are clearly the perfect candidate for a public stoning.

Ah, that explains the differences in our opinions. My Faith does not dictate that the mother stay at home with the children and the father "provide".
