I know of a number of women physicians with husbands staying home. I really think it is a team effort rather than one supporting the other, just as my husband has not been “supporting” me all of the years that I have been a SAHM. It seems to me that they are just different means of keeping the family and household together…even though only one has a paycheck.
Thank you for your replies. I gather the stay at home husbands stayed home with children.
You are so right – one person working outside the home, and one taking care of children and a household, regardless of the gender of the breadwinner, is teamwork. I should have specified, that was not what I was asking about. 😮 I was wondering if there were any women physicians whose husbands stayed home and did NOT take care of children. I was interested in the dynamics of that type of relationship, since that is not “the norm”.
Don’t know if there will be that many replies on a MOMMD forum, since so many of us are moms and therefore kids are involved! 🙂
