Thanks for posting the link. The article was fascinating. And a little disturbing to me. Particularly the examples of practically destitute wives with wealthy husbands.

I think what the article mentions at the end - about household and childrearing labor - is important. It's that divide, that some men don't see inside the home labor as important labor that should have compensation. Or at least a healthy living wage. It also makes me think I need to have a talk with my SO to check on the future.
