    An individual so insecure that they can't handle their spouse earning more money than them isn't fit to be a "leader".

    Ah - the political discussion with strange men . . . that's what I'm doing wrong with this whole stay at home mom college military wife thing! LOL

    People have strange beliefs about what "Housewife" is...and that not being employed outside the home...somehow means that they don't earn their way. It's damn hard work...and if women charged for the work that they do in the home...it would run in the neighborhood of $50K a year.

    Those that believe income defines who is the leader of the family...very lacking in understanding marital relationships.

    And those who believe that women who earn more than their husbands...damage their self-esteem...is a trip back to the 1950's thinking.

    Times have changed...but apparently a lot of people live in a very stagnated delusion about what's going on in the here and now.

    Well, I can honestly say that I wouldn't hire a woman with 4 children (if I could finagle that info out of her in an interview legally) anyway - no offense to you, of course.

    I just picture FMLA being used so much that it's just not worth my time.

    IDK. It is just something you pick up. In grad school you hear the business of people you barely know or don't even know on a daily basis. It was generally accepted that certain girls who were there were more interested in finding a hubby than in their studies. Nothing wrong with it. Just an observation, just like more people apply to law school when there is a war or a recession than during good economic times. Grad school is often a refuge.
    Then why do more women graduate from college than men? This seems like a observation made from bias and stereotypes (unless it is an observation from many decades ago). There are fewer men in college than women, especially nowdays, and most women/girls entering college know this. But there aren't just more entering college, but also graduating from college. And young girls entering college research colleges more on their academics and programs than young men do.

    What you describe sounds like gender stereotyping that is very outdated. It is from a past time when young women very well may have went to college to earn their "MRS", instead of an actual degree. That is not the case anymore.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    You are a leech stealing from the rest of society. Raising children is non-negotiable absolute requirement for the continuation of our species, something you obviously receive massive benefits from seeing as how all your customers and employees are human. Spending time with sick kids is an integral requirement of the child raising process. Raising children also requires resources obtained either through employment of the parents or through taxpayer subsidy. You are attempting to shift the financial burden onto taxpayers and other employers, ignoring the payment you owe for the benefits you receive from child rearing.

    But you would hire a man with 4 kids no sweat?

    Maybe when I own my own business I shouldn't hire anyone who does NOT have kids - just to even the playing field.

    I'm not being sarcastic. I have no tolerance for employers who receive massive economic benefits from systems that require resources to build and then pretend they don't owe any of the costs.
