If women valued motherhood so much, they wouldn’t dump their newborns into commercial orphanages (daycare) so they could get back to being fulfilled by their careers. And spare me the sob story about how it takes two incomes to survive today. It only takes two incomes if you want a $300,000 home, two SUVs and a closet full of shoes.
You aren’t getting any arguments from me. I was just pointing out that this was not a new thing. This has been as old as the hills.
Many people DO have to have two incomes. Not everyone is an engineer, have specialized degrees that produce higher incomes or are lucky to own their own business that does well.
And many of these two income earners are not living high on the hog. Many have to really watch their pennies.
