I am surprised by the negative reactions to this article. It is one woman's experience. To maintain the lifestyle she wants for herself and her children she has to go to work, that is the bottomline. Maybe you think her lifestyle is too grand, but that is frankly nobody's business but hers and hers alone since her husband is now out of the picture. To throw out information about her finanical situation as one post has done is crass and in very poor taste. The reality of divorce for many stay at home parents (men and women) is not good and to have such a negative reaction to something that happens all the time is strange. The fact of the matter is in this economy women and men who have chosen to stay home with their children will find it very difficult to get any job with a descent salary and there is a certain level of financial risk stay at home parents assume with their decision to stay at home. That is just a fact. I did not grow up in privledge and my view is I would never allow a man to be the sole source of inome for me, let alone the children we have together. It is not a risk I am willing to take. When I read articles such as this it reinforces my decision.
