A Letter to My Breadwinner Husband

Dear Dr. Laura,

I read this, and after forwarding it to my wonderful hubby, I immediately thought of you.  

"It is the steady breadwinner husband, men like you, who allow women like me to live such comfortable lives.

It is because of your willingness to work full time, year round—with no freedom to tell your boss “I quit!” and with no sabbatical to think about what other things you’d like to do with your life, and with no ability to have time just for you smack in the middle of a workweek that my life, and our kids’ lives, are as wonderful as they are.

Even when the kids got older and I “went back to work,” so to speak, you and I never had to fight over who can take that business trip or who can take off work when our kids were sick. It was always I who stayed home, and it was always you who went to work.

It was a win-win for everyone."
